Frequently Asked Questions


Negotiating a Contract
Having Your Offer Accepted

There is not one negotiation strategy that will work each and every time. However, the following will increase the likelihood of your offer being accepted. Always be truthful. Don't overstate your position. Clearly communicate your terms and conditions so there will be no misunderstandings later.

Obtain written loan approval prior to submitting the offer.

Research the market and home values. If you become knowledgeable in advance, you'll know how to make the right decision.

Be prepared to make decisions quickly - the fear of making a wrong decision often stops people from making the right decision.

Prepare a buyer profile to submit to the seller. Supplying information such as employment history, financial ability, and reasons for purchasing will establish a relationship with the seller.

Offer a realistic price based on market conditions, property value, and seller motivation. "Low Ball" offers will often offend the seller and will ultimately diminish your ability to negotiate.

Include a significant earnest money deposit. Larger amounts indicate a stronger commitment.

Minimize contingencies to those that are key to the purchase. Fewer contingencies increase the likelihood of your offer being accepted.
