People often have preconceived notions about offers and counteroffers. For instance, some people assume every offer requires a counteroffer. This isn’t always the case. Sometimes when a reasonable offer presents itself and the conditions are right, it’s perfectly fine to accept an offer and move forward as quickly as possible. As you review offers, it’s important to keep this in mind.
I always like to encourage my clients to weigh an offer appropriately, and I help them to do just that. As we entertain offers or make counteroffers, we take into account your desires with the property in question, the condition of the house, comparable prices, and how long the home has been on the market. We’ll also look at opportunities where we might improve offers to smooth the process or sweeten the deal.
Finally, it’s very important to put small details in perspective. There may be times when an offer can be overshadowed by a relatively insignificant sticking point. Often these are emotional blocks to an otherwise excellent deal. Home buying and selling is a complex process, and though there is a strong desire for everything to be perfect, the experience is often comes with necessary compromises. It’s vital to be able to differentiate between what can and cannot be compromised. Along the way, I will try to help you see these differences as clearly as possible.
If you have any specific questions about offers or counteroffers you’d like me to address, please ask! No question is too small or unimportant. I am here for you as as a trusted adviser.
