Negotiating The Right Way
You may have to deal with multiple offers before ratifying the one you judge to be the most suitable for you. Your agent can offer a thorough and unbiased assessment of each offer to help you make the right choice. The responsibility of fairly negotiating contractual terms lies with an agent.
The Initial Agreement and Deposit
Keep written records of everything. It will be extremely useful to transcribe all verbal agreements including counter-offers convert them into written agreements to be signed by both parties. An agent can help you in drafting all the paperwork for your sale and make sure that you have copies of all the documents.
Stick to the schedule. Now that you have chosen your offer, you and the buyer will be given a timeline to mark every stage in the process of closing the real estate contract.

Loan Approval and Appraisal
We suggest that you accept buyers who have a lender’s pre-approval, approval letter, or written loan commitment, which is a better guarantee of loan approval than a pre-qualification or no documentation from a lending institute. Expect an appraiser from the lender’s company to review your property and verify that the sales price is appropriate.
