Making an Offer

Writing Offers and Negotiating Acceptance

makinganofferHow you write a winning offer depends on your marketplace and whether it is a seller’s or buyer’s market. Call me to find out what needs to be listed in your offer to give you the edge. As a buyer, how do you write conditions that will let you cancel the deal and get your deposit back? As a seller, learn how to give up the battle and win the war through counter offers.

When it comes time to make an offer you want an experienced negotiator on your side.

As a Real Estate Professional, I will communicate your Offer to Purchase to the seller, or the seller’s representative, on your behalf.  Sometimes there may be more than one offer on a property at the same time. A Real Estate Professional can guide you through this process.

Firm to Offer Purchase
Usually preferable to the seller because it means buyers are prepared to purchase the home without any conditions.

Conditional Offer to Purchase
Usually means there are one or more conditions on the purchase, such as “subject to home inspection”, “subject to financing” or “subject to sale of buyer’s existing home”. The home is not sold until all the conditions have been met.

Acceptance of Offer
An Offer to Purchase is presented to a seller who may accept the offer, reject it, or submit a counter-offer.  The counter-offer may be in reference to the price, closing date, conditions or any number of variables.  Offers can go back and forth until both parties have agreed to terms or either side ends the negotiations.


If you would like more information on making an offer, or for more information on buying a home please do not hesitate to call me at  416-712-0767 or simply complete the form below.
