When your dream home is identified, we will write up an offer to present to the agent representing the seller. Now comes the fun part – Negotiations. Don’t worry, we actually love negotiating deals! We know that you, the buyer, have a certain amount that you are able or willing to spend on a home. We also know more closely what a home is worth based on the current market and other factors. In addition to sales price, other items that can be negotiated include closing and possession dates, club membership fees, seller-paid closing costs, etc.
After an accepted offer is received, you will deposit your earnest money with the agreed upon title/escrow company. Your earnest money is held by a neutral, third-party (Title Company) until the transaction closes. If the deal falls through before closing, your earnest money will be returned to you under specific circumstances. We can walk you through all of that, and make sure you have a clear understanding of the rules and timelines associated with your transaction.
