Once you’ve found your dream house, it’s time to get started with the financial and contractual side of the purchase. Let your PLANET GROUP REALTY professionals guide you through this process. Purchase contracts vary in length and terms from state to state, and within a state, from locality to locality. Because you and the seller have different goals, rely on your PLANET GROUP REALTY agent’s experience and expertise. He or she can bring order and calm to the process and will know what questions you may not know to ask to help you reach a favourable outcome.
Multiple offers on the same home are not uncommon, so you may only get one chance to make an offer that the seller will consider. That’s why it’s important to think carefully about your strategy. In most cases it is better to have your real estate professional negotiate the offer. If you have any personal interaction with the homeowner, don’t give out any information about your move, your current housing status, financial status or your feelings about their property – positive or negative. This could hurt you in future negotiations.
