Video Series: Tips for Making an Offer on a Home

Welcome back to  Crye-Leike Insights! Each week, we share tips, stories, and wisdom from our Crye-Leike family. This week, Jack Webb shares his expertise and gives us a few tips on making an offer on a house.

Hire a Realtor

  •  When you hire Crye-Leike, you not only get a top-notch Realtor, you also will have access to moving services, relocation services, and much more.

 

Find  out  about  the Home  and Neighborhood

  • Discuss home comparables and neighborhood amenities.

 

Begin with the End in Mind

  • Think about where you want to end up when finished negotiating.

 

Find  out  the  Seller’s  Motivation

  • If the home has been on the market for a long time or the seller has a big motivation for wanting to move quickly, they will be more willing to negotiate on price.

 

Find  out  the  Home’s  Condition

  • Always get an inspection and find out how much maintenance will be required.

 

Get Pre-Qualified

  • You want to know what you can qualify for for your loan.
  • If you are pre-qualified, you offer looks much better to the seller.

 

Less   Contingencies

  • The less contingencies that you have in you offer, the more attractive your offer looks to the seller.

 

Keep  Your  Emotions in  Check

  • Consider how the seller will view your offer. The goal is for this to be a win-win situation for both sides.
