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.
Lisa Briganti was an amazing realtor! I would recommend her to anyone.
She’s such a warm person that it took very little time for her to get to know us as a couple and be in tune with our taste and what we wanted in a home. Her responsiveness to our questions and inquiries were always quick and we really appreciated that. She was honest and open about her opinions to ensure we were making the best decision.
It’s crucial in this crazy market to get inside homes you’re interested in ASAP and Lisa always made that happen. I even sent her a home we came across while she happened to be out of town and she made sure we got inside that house less than 24 hours later. Her efforts were impressive.
Even after our offer on a home was accepted, she was with us every step of the way, which was really important to me as this was my first time buying a house. All in all, I had a seamless and positive experience!
