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.
It was a pleasure working on our home purchase with Toyia. Even though we lived in Oklahoma, and our search was in Texas, the process could not have gone more smoothly. Toyia took the time to video the homes that interested us, discussed the homes in length, and provided her expertise. She knew what we were looking for, and only recommended those which fit our search criteria. When we found the home we wanted to purchase, Toyia coordinated everything flawlessly with all parties involved. She kept us abreast of everything happening with the purchase through the closing with the title company. My wife and I were extremely pleased with Toyia, and the effort she put in and her attention to detail. We highly recommend her. Of all the homes we've purchased over the years, this was the easiest, by far. larry spitzer052497
