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.
We love Jenkins Realtors, everyone who works there is amazing. Michelle J Clark-Martinu
JoAnn is the best realtor on this planet. She is professional, kind and full of knowledge. I am a single mom with zero knowledge on home purchasing, loans, insurance, etc. She has spent the last five years answering all of my millions of questions with a smile on her face. I purchased a home in town with her guidance; where I lived three years. She knew my dream was to live in the country and we continued looking until we found the perfect peaceful home for my family. She is dedicated, flexible, caring and trustworthy. She is lovely.Natalie Zacher
