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.
"Kathy is a wonderful broker. We came to Colorado Springs from out of state on a home searching trip and Kathy showed us the home we ended up buying. She is a knowledgeable professional, answering all our questions and concerns. The brokering with the bank was handled well; Kathy worked as a good go between. We always felt we were in good hands and that our concerns were addressed in a timely manner. Our closing went well. We love our home. Kathy Stenberg can be trusted to work with you on all your real estate needs ~ 2011"Kathaleen & Thomas Clifford, Client
