Making an Offer

Preparing the Offer

When you view a home on the market that you really want, you can hardly wait to be handed the keys. In fact, you may worry that the property will somehow slip through your fingers. Don’t be. You’ve got experts by your side. As your real estate team, Black & McDonald Real Estate’s job is to ensure you get that home – and at a price that works for you.

The first step is preparing the Offer. This is the document your agents present to the seller that basically states the price you’re offering, as well as any conditions.

The price you go in with is critical. You want it to reflect the true market value of the property so the seller will take your offer seriously. On the other hand, you don’t want to go in too high and risk overpaying for the home.

Don’t worry. Your team knows how to prepare a winning offer and get you the property at the lowest possible price. In fact, Black & McDonald Real Estate looks after your interests throughout the entire process.

How the Process Works

When you decide to make an offer on a home, here’s what typically happens:

  • Your agents will recommend a price that has the best chance of being accepted by the seller, without over-paying for the home.
  • Obviously, sellers prefer offers that have no conditions. However, your team may suggest a condition, such as passing a professional home inspection, be included for your protection.
  • Your agents will prepare the necessary documents and present your offer to the seller and his or her real estate agent personally.
  • If the offer isn’t accepted, or if the seller makes a counter-offer, your team will work with the seller’s agent, skillfully negotiating on your behalf to make a deal.
  • Your agents will communicate with you throughout the entire process. You’re never in the dark when you work with Black & McDonald Real Estate.
  • Once the seller agrees to a deal, your team will help lead you through removal of any conditions and closing the deal. Then, the home is yours. Congratulations!
