In Columbus, Can you make a Verbal Offer on a Home for Sale August 28th, 2008 categories: For Home Buyers, For Home Sellers
Yes, you can make a verbal offer on any home for sale in the Columbus area. The Agent representing the Seller is obligated to present all offers, written or verbal, ludicrous or authentic, to the Seller. The seller could accept your verbal offer and you could be in contract.
In Ohio, however, the contract will not be binding or enforceable until it is writing and signed by both parties. My Suggestion, always put it writing. Saying and doing are two different things and everyone’s time is valuable. Need someone to write your offer — give me a call or send me an email.
