Aspects that you should consider before making an offer on a home

You are excitingly anticipating buying a new home and you have recently found the perfect house in Georgia that you are interested in making an offer on. Because you are aware that you are not the only interested buyer, you are looking for ways to polish your offer to give yourself the best chance at winning over the seller. At The Roberts Law Firm, P.C., we have helped many people to effectively manage the process of buying a new home without compromising what they want. 

While you may not see your offer as anything more than a request, your offer is an imperative opportunity for you to define your requirements as the buyer. This is your chance to disclose the contingencies you have that if honored, will make this home the one you end up buying. 

According to, when  making your offer, you should address essential topics including how you plan to pay for the property, your request for a title transferal, whether or not utilities and homeowner's association fees will be prorated for transferal between you and the previous owner, the desired closing date and a time limit for receiving a decision from the seller. Another vital part of your contract will be negotiating a price deduction. If you have been pre-approved for a mortgage, are planning to pay cash for the property or do not have the contingency that you must sell your current home to qualify to buy the home you are making an offer on, you are in a much more competitive position than other interested buyers. 

When you are aware of which aspects to pay attention to in creating your offer, you may feel much more confident in your proposal to the seller. For more information about real estate, visit our web page.
