Accepting an OfferHaving
Signature Properties’ professional experience on your side can save you time
Price is Not Everything: Price is not always the deciding factor and
the first offer may not be final. One of
Signature Properties’ roles is to help you sift through all the terms and
conditions of the offer(s) you receive to help you create a transaction that
best suits your requirements and needs. When appropriate, we will help you properly
make a counter offer when an offer does not meet your minimums. So, while it may be contrary to your current
thinking, the highest price offer may not be the best offer to accept when all
aspects of all offers and counters are professionally considered.
Objectivity and Fairness: Selling your home requires remaining objective
and always negotiating in good faith. Signature Properties can help you
significantly with this very important part of selling property. We will help you negotiate the contractual
terms that are beneficial to you and fair to the other party. As an experienced REALTOR®, Signature
Properties knows how to handle situations including multiple offers and
multiple counter offers prior to you going into contract with one buyer, or
“ratifying” their offer.
Once there is a ratified offer, the buyer will deposit an agreed upon good
faith deposit into an escrow account, reflecting their earnest intention to
purchase your property.
Get it in Writing: Verbal agreements
and changes must be reduced to writing. Signature
Properties can make sure that verbal agreements and counter offers are presented
in the appropriate addendums and are properly committed to writing and signed
by both parties. Thereby, Signature
Properties will make sure everyone’s intentions are not lost, are properly
clarified, and are properly documented.
We will make sure that ambiguity is cleared up and words spoken are not forgotten
or contradicted later.
SP Tracking: Real estate
contracts provide a series of deadlines for both buyer and seller. Therefore, staying on track is critical. Keeping this series of events on schedule
ensures a timely and successful close of the transaction, or close of escrow. Upon acceptance of an offer, we will give you
a copy of the timeline we will be using to track the transaction, so you will
always know what’s next.
