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 absolutely loved working with Tony. Even before we met in person, he had done his homework and lined up plenty of homes for us to see that we were interested in. Our week-long house-hunting trip was enjoyable as Tony showed us the towns as well as the homes. Our first 2 choices didn't work out, and we left without a home. The next few months, we worked together remotely, and Tony showed us a few homes via Facetime! Through the whole experience, Tony was with us and negotiated for us, not one, but 4 times! Then he stayed with us until all the papers were signed. We have bought and sold homes several times, and Tony is one of the best realtors we've had the privilege of working with.Brian & Rachelle
