Write an Offer and Let's Find Out!

 

Agents come through the door of a luxury property during the local Board Tour Event, a few disclose they may have a buyer. During the conversation with the listing agent, they may ask about:

  • sellers motivation
  • several possible scenarios
  • the many upgrades and features

 

When it comes to inquiring what price the sellers would consider. In the past, I have said, "A full price offer." In this market, it's best to answer, “Get an offer written and let's find out.” The key word is written. 

 

Once a signed offer is placed in front of sellers, with clear terms and conditions, they may choose to accept, counter offer or reject. Some agents fish for information that tends to go nowhere but others are serious.

 

So, for those in particular, write the offer and let's find out together!

Wanda for years I've said exactly this to buyer agents - put it in writing and we'll find out what the sellers says.  And for pete's sake - it's ever more important in our brisk market currently.

Absolutely, Wanda. My original broker, and mother-in-law, always said a verbal offer is only as good as the paper it is written on. Therefore, write the offer. Words are hard to send a copy of to a lender, closing agent or anyone else.

Hi Wanda:

Yes, indeed, in this market the key is getting the offer written, and quickly. Who knows what the best offer will be and what the seller will accept?

A written offer opens up a dialogue more often that not, Jeff Dowler, CRS. It is then up to the seller to decide how to proceed!
