Making an Offer

Before an offer is made on the home you want to purchase, it is critical to have a pre-appoval letter in hand. This shows the seller you are serious about your offer and that you are financially able to purchase the seller’s home.

After you have found your dream home and decide you want to make an offer, the next step is to prepare the offer. This is the document we complete and present to the seller. This offer must be in writing or prepared electronically using the Statewide New Jersey Realtors Standard Form of Real Estate Sales Contract. We will discuss all aspects of the home together and decide what price and terms we should present to the seller. We will go over all details of the contract line by line before it is presented to the seller’s agent. It is critical to present the seller with an offer that reflects the true market value of the property so your offer is taken seriously. Many times we see multiple offers on properties in Bergen County. That is where our experience comes in. We know how to prepare the winning offer and have the strategies to get you that hot property!

Most times a first offer is not accepted and a seller makes a counter-offer. We will work with the seller’s agent skillfully negotiating on your behalf to make the deal. We will communicate with you throughout the entire process, strategizing our next steps in our counter-offer. Once the seller agrees to the terms, the contract is signed and we begin the attorney review process.

In a competitive market like Bergen Country, it is crucial to work with someone who is a seasoned negotiator, has experience with multiple offers, has strong realtor relationships, and has the skills to get you the home you really want!
