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.
Eden, thank you very much for all your hard work in helping us sell our home! It ended up being a longer process than planned due to other circumstances and we appreciate you stepping in and guiding us as to what to do next. You made a difficult situation much more tolerable. Your knowledge of all aspects of selling and/or buying a home are excellent. Thank you for your honesty and loyalty throughout the process. I would highly recommend you to help anyone sell or buy their home!April Chase
