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.
I found Mary, quite by mistake, while researching properties online. I initiated an inspection request and her response was nearly instantaneous. I was impressed by her prompt response and friendly, helpful manner. Mary was always available to talk and to answer questions. Even though she gave her time in the evenings and on weekends, she always appeared pleased to help. Perhaps equally important as her attitude and work ethic, Mary is experienced and knowledgeable. Sometimes you need to trust the recommendation of a professional, and with Mary I never once doubted that her recommendations were in keeping with my best interests. Superior customer service is often promised, but rarely delivered. If you need an experienced, capable, realtor, I recommend Mary Fitzpatrick without reservationGary Lashley
