You need to be a good writer and reader in the real estate world…

The importance of reading and understanding an offer

 

When you make or receive an offer to buy a property, it’s important that you

read and understand every clause. It is especially important to understand

any conditions or any changes that are made to the standard offer.

 

An offer may contain several types of conditions. The most common are

“conditional upon arranging financing” and “conditional upon passing a

professional home inspection.” However, there may be other conditions as

well.

 

You should be aware of – and fully understand – all of them.

In addition, the wording of an offer may change during the back and forth

negotiations that often happen. Aside from changes to the price, other

clauses may be added, removed or reworded as well.

 

A good agent will always ask you to initial changes. This is done primarily to

ensure you know and approve of what you’re signing.

 

A recent newspaper article tells the story of a buyer-seller legal dispute that

resulted in a six-figure judgement against the seller. This was due, in part, to

a lack of understanding of one of the clauses in the agreement.

 

You don’t want that to happen to you. Take the time to carefully review and

understand an offer.

 

Having written and read many offers in real estate transactions I have seen many situations that you should be aware of, understand, and ask for.

 

On your next transaction have a professional on your side, it could be worth thousands.

 

As always, I am available to help you with any real estate pursuit.

 

It’s your move….I’ll help you make it!
