Accepting an Offer

The Price:

Price is not always the determining factor when accepting an offer. Other factors, such as requested closing date, closing cost allowances, additional repairs requested, among many others can significantly affect the bottom line. We will work with you to understand the net result of these factors on your bottom line.


We have the experience necessary to guide you through the negotiation process. We will review all offers with you thoroughly and objectively and discuss all options available to ensure you are happy with the final agreement.

The Initial Agreement and Deposit:

The effective agreement, or contract that has been agreed upon by both the seller and potential buyer is a legally binding document. These agreements usually require the buyer to provide earnest money to be held by the seller’s broker, and/or a deposit to be held by the closing agent. The amount and timing of payment are defined in the effective agreement.

Tips for Home Sellers:

  • Keep written records of all offers, counter offers, effective agreements and subsequent changes and amendments.
  • Stick to the sale timeline laid out in the contract. Any changes to this timeline must be agreed to by both the seller and buyer, and may delay closing.
