Go Ahead And Submit The Offer

Go Ahead And Submit The Offer

 

 

 

 

As a listing agent, I encourage offers and tell the buyers and  the agents 

"You can't insult me with an offer."

 

In turn, I will NOT allow the  home owner to be insulted.

                                                                

 

 

Submit offer to Margaret Rome

 

The seller does not have to accept a low offer and it might be a good way to start negotiations.

How many times have we heard.."I don't want to give my house away?"

It is my job as a listing agent to explain and present any offer.

 

 

 A written offer  shows that the buyer is interested in making a purchase.

Submitting an offer takes time.

Time to obtain a lender letter,  time to provide  proof of funds, and time to read, sign and understand the  40 plus pages.

 

Then there is the earnest money deposit, coordinating dates for loan application, settlement, inspections  etc..

 

Please don't call or email the listing agent asking... if the  seller will take X amount.
