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.
Kendra Frank is an absolute GEM! She was of GREAT assistance during our consideration of three properties this past winter. Her continual efforts to find the best place and the best price were appreciated. Her experience working with other realtors, with local city entities, lending institutions, and home inspectors was such a bonus for us in our home hunt! Kendra stayed with us from the beginning to the end through three properties, always with a positive attitude, and with our interests at the top of her list. Her advice was heartfelt, and she worked very hard to keep abreast of the changing economy and housing market in our area. She stayed in touch with us via messaging, testing, e-mails and via phone - we were never out of contact with her! We were completely satisfied with her extra time and efforts.Casper and Christy
