Making an Offer







As your Buyer’s Agent we will:


  1. Prepare an offer that will meet your needs and provide a solid basis for negotiating with the seller.
  2. Provide you with a Competitive Market Analysis that will determine a realistic offer.
  3. Present your written offer to the sellers agent and negotiate on your behalf.
  4. The sellers will have the choice of:


  • Accepting your offer as presented
  • Rejecting it completely
  • Countering it
  • 5.   Communicate to you the seller’s response and, if necessary, suggest further negotiating options.
  • 6.   An accepted offer leads to a legally binding purchase contract.
