Talking to the Seller

Once you find the house of your dreams, the time has come to put in an offer. We will run comparable sales in the community, and look at national trends, to ensure you can put in a competitive offer that gives you a real shot at securing your new house. Our team will then discuss earnest deposit amounts, whether you or the seller will cover closing costs, and create your and acknowledged review of the seller’s property-related disclosures. We also discuss tips about improving your chances, such as taking on closing costs or writing a personalized letter pleading your case.

What Happens Next?

Next, you will wait for the response. It could come back as accepted, rejected, or with a counter-offer. From there, we will work with you to decide your next move. Once the negotiations have ended and your offer is accepted, then we will begin the process of closing.
