When reading an offer, keep in mind that you are out to get the best price AND the best terms for you. If you focus solely on the price, you may overlook terms that could be favorable to you as a buyer.
Some terms that may work in your favor:
higher-than-market-interest in a second mortgage for your home
the buyer will pay for most or all of the closing costs
the buyer will take care of any repairs
quick close - the buyer is pre-approved and ready to close in a timeframe that best suits you
When reading through offers, remember to look at the whole package. Take the time that you need to assess what is being offered and if it meets your needs.
I recently bought property in Pamplico with the help of my agent, Bob Crosby. I wanted to share how very professional, personable, and very helpful Bob has been. Living 500-miles or so away from the area we bought in was definitely a challenge for my wife and I. Bob made this a very easy transition in buying our first piece of property. I want to thank the Barry, Broker in Charge, and the staff at Weichert for your professionalism. When I had questions, Bob never let 5-minutes go by withouth a reply, so thanks for the prompt responses when I had questions. Thank you again for helping me. We are excited to begin a new chapter in our lives, and we have Bob and Weichert Realtors® - The Freedom Group to thank. Bob is definitely an asset to your company. Dean D'Adamo
