How to make the right offer

At this point in your hunt for a new home, you’ve probably gone through extensive searching and preparation. We’ve been there for you every step of the way, showing you properties based on your desires and requirements, helping you narrow down your options until you find the right home. Now you’re probably ready want to make an offer, but there are few things you will need to know first.

In order to make the best and most realistic offer, there are a number of factors to take into consideration, such as the current market conditions. By taking a closer looking at the comps, and taking the appraisal of your desired property into consideration, we can make an offer that satisfies your needs.

Before your offer is made, you are going to want to determine a closing date, which is generally about 30 days or longer, ensuring that your lender can complete your loan in time; however, if you have been pre-approved, this process may be shorter. You will also want to give yourself plenty of time to have the property inspected before your closing date.

Now you can make that offer, and once it’s been placed, the seller will determine whether or not they would like to accept it. You may also have to consider if you are willing to accept their terms, should they counter your offer. Terms may include things such as post or past possession of the property, home warranties, and more.

Before making an offer, obtain as much information as possible, and contact Nau Real Estate to work with a professional who will help you make the best deal. I am committed to providing you with outstanding customer service, and I look forward to making your home-buying journey as exciting as possible.
