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.
We were moving from Texas and Mike was not only our realtor he became our eyes. Mike went well above and beyond any expectation we could ever have. Mike was in constant contact with us each step of the way and traversed the state in every direction in order to find us exactly what we were looking for. I am positive you could not find a more dedicated, honest person to represent you during your search for a new home. Two great things came out of our dealings with Mike; a perfect home and a very good friend.Cam Norfolk
