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.
Nova and I have been friends for over a decade and when I needed help selling my house, he was my first call. My house was heading into foreclosure and with the market value being so high, I wanted to maximize my take away from the property. Nova helped me with renovations to get it ready for sale. He knew just how to "put lipstick on the pig." Nova knew what to fix in the house to maximize my profits. He was knowledgeable and kept me informed during the entire process. I cannot thank Nova enough for helping me get a fantastic return on what could have been a total loss.Alison, Seattle WA
