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.
Annie responded to our first contact to her email immediately and every request there after with the same expediency. She was very professional and personable with all our dealings. She has made our buying a very pleasurable experience. We would recommend her highly.Ernest Stewart
Ben was a great agent and was able to work well with my unconventional work schedule to provide showings and advice/assistance... And his assistance throughout the buying process was invaluable... I would definitely recommend Ben and all the staff at Sherlock Homes for anyone that needs a great real estate agent...Tim Herron
I would highly recommend Jill Yaeger and Sherlock Homes to anyone looking for a great agent to work with when buying or selling your next home! Jill was extremely helpful throughout the process of purchasing our last two properties, as well as the one we are currently selling. She is very pleasant, knowledgeable, and helps make the process of buying or selling a home much easier! Thanks for everything you have done to help!Derek Guiton
