When reading an offer, keep in mind that you are out to get the best price AND the best terms for you. If you focus solely on the price, you may overlook terms that could be favorable to you as a buyer.
Some terms that may work in your favor:
higher-than-market-interest in a second mortgage for your home
the buyer will pay for most or all of the closing costs
the buyer will take care of any repairs
quick close - the buyer is pre-approved and ready to close in a timeframe that best suits you
When reading through offers, remember to look at the whole package. Take the time that you need to assess what is being offered and if it meets your needs.
Our experience building a home with Marc Newman as our new construction sales representative was 1st class. We had spoken to other builders in our search to build a new home and meeting Marc is what sold us. He is responsive in communications and keeps the client well informed throughout the process. We can’t say enough about how helpful and knowledgeable he is. I say is because post-closing, he is still very accessible to address any concerns we may have to resolve any preclosing issues, service and or warranty issues. My husband and I knew exactly what we were looking for from the start. Marc worked closely with us and acted as a liaison between us and the builder to make our vision a reality. Our home is absolutely beautiful and the experience building it was a good one thanks to Marc Newman.Cheri and Jay Johnson, Flat Rock
