It all starts with making the offer

I love doing open houses and meeting those looking for their first home, their next home.

Each has their expectations at what their next home will look like – where it will be, what things they just must have, how much they can afford or much they will spend

The one question that always amazes me – “Is there room for negotiation?”

A reminder to all buyers – “The first step in purchasing or selling Massachusetts residential real estate is the presentation and acceptance of an Offer To Purchase.”    Once a seller has a”written” offer then they have 3 options before them – 1) accept   2) negotiate different price/terms   3) reject

No seller or their realtor will discuss anything about negotiation without this “written offer” in place.

A reminder that an offer should include a pre-approval (for those needing a loan) or proof of funds (for those paying cash) as well as deposit monies (usually $500/$1000) to show that you are earnest in your offer and any other required paperwork for that property,  The deposit monies will not be cashed until the offer has been fully negotiated and accepted by the seller,

So just as I said from the beginning –  It all starts with the offer.  If you want that property, make that offer or you might never own it,

If you need help with making that offer or putting your home on the market to move into the next stage of your life – give me a call,  It is always an honor to serve my clients –
