Making an offer

You have searched and searched for the perfect home and you finally found that one that you want. What’s the next step? Writing a purchase offer is what you do next. However, it is more difficult than it sounds.

Your offer is going to be one of the most important aspects of buying that home that you really want. It is the first step in negotiating with the seller. When you sit down to write your offer, think of how your seller is going to react. Make sure you offer a respectable price that you have reached with a great amount of research.

When writing an offer to purchase a home, though, there are some legal obligations to protect both the buyer and seller. In addition to the price you are willing to pay for the home, the buyer must also include any details of the purchase. This may include how to finance the home, the amount of the down payment, required inspections before purchasing the home, any repairs desired by the buyer and more.

Purchasing a home is going to impact the finances of both the buyer and seller more than any other purchase. When you write an offer for purchase, the seller begins making plans based on that offer. They may make an offer on another home based on the price that you offer to them. Writing an offer could be one of the most important financial decisions you will make for the next 10 years. Don’t take this lightly. Take the time to come up with a fair price and make note of the stipulations for purchase before submitting it to the seller.
