Evaluating An Offer

When you receive an offer(s) for your property, there are many decisions to make and details to consider. I will help you evaluate the quality of the offer, negotiate the terms and ensure a smooth transaction. Here are just a few of the many ways I will assist you through this important process:

  • Be at your side when the offer is presented or receive it on your behalf and review it with you privately.
  • Request information about the buyer’s background, intentions and qualifications.
  • Thoroughly review the contract and ensure that you understand all the details.
  • Guide you through key stages of the process – contingencies, inspections, disclosures, escrow, buyer financing, and any unusual terms and costs.
  • Negotiate the sales price and terms that are most advantageous to you.
  • Provide you with information about recent market activity.
  • Provide you with specific information about local, state and federal requirements that affect the sale of property. These requirements may include state codes such as: Transfer Disclosure Statement, Smoke Detectors Compliance, Environmental Hazards Disclosure; and Federal requirements such as: The Foreign Investment in Real Property Tax Act (FIRPTA) and Lead Paint Hazard Reduction Act.

You may also wish to consult your attorney or tax advisor during the sales process. I will always present you with all the facts at my disposal and offer my educated personal opinion, but the final decision to accept, reject or counter an offer is yours.
