Making the Offer
Once you know how much you can afford by getting pre-approved and the Carlin Team has found you the perfect home to suit your needs, then you must decide what you are willing to pay for it.
Every potential transaction will be different. Sometimes a seller will overprice a property assuming a buyer will start with a low offer. Often when a seller chooses an experienced agent to list their home, the asking price will be right on target.
All offers should be made in writing. The terms and conditions of your offer will depend on market conditions, your motivation and other pertinent factors. When you and the seller come to terms, the contract will be signed by both parties. You will be asked for earnest money, which will be held in escrow until the closing. This money will be credited toward your settlement costs at the closing.
The Carlin Team and Keller Williams Realty are proud to offer buyers agency services. Under this representation, the selling agent has the duty to represent your best interests including negotiating for the lowest possible price and structuring the transaction to your advantage.
