You’ve scoured the internet, seen a dozen houses, taken your pictures, made all your notes: You’ve found the house! Now what? Time to Make Your Offer!
- Purchase Price: We’ll conduct a market analysis. We use an appraisal methodology to arrive at an appropriate price for a home. Ideally, we take the target property and research homes like it that have sold within one mile within one year. We then add and subtract values for features such as lot, house and basement square footage, number and types of rooms, types of features, upgrades and updates, basement finishes, etc. and arrive at an ideal price.
- Concessions: If you need help with your closing costs, we’ll help you decide how much to ask for and whether we believe the seller can make that contribution.
- Contracts: We then prepare all the real estate contracts necessary to make your offer, have you sign the paperwork, and submit the contract to the listing agent. Most of our contract documents are electronic and quick and easy to use!
- Counter Offers & Under Contract: Anytime a contract is on the table, we can expect any one of approximately three actions: a “yes” response, a “no” response, or a Counter Offer. Once we receive the response, we consult with you and act upon it until we are officially Under Contract.
