This contract provision on increasing an offer on a home crossword that I shared with you a couple of weeks ago had me scratching my head.
It seems to me that the contract would have to be in writing, and that would add about another $200 to an offer. I know that it is possible to add terms to an offer without writing it, but I have a feeling that is not the case here.
To be clear, the contract doesn’t even say that you have to take the offer to the seller’s home. It just says that the seller has to be available to take the offer to their home. What’s going on here? If I understand correctly, the seller can’t say no if the buyer doesn’t take the offer to their home, but the seller can say no if the buyer wants to take the offer to someone else’s home.
This is just what I am making up.
The first thing you should keep in mind is that the offer is not your best bet; the seller does not want to take the offer.
That is true, but in general buyer beware. Sometimes it is a mistake to take an offer to a seller’s home. The seller might have one of his friends or family members who lives in the home that you are offering to buy and they might be interested. If this is the case, you need to find out who is the seller’s friend and ask that person if they are interested. If they are, then you should have no problem making an offer to the seller’s house.
The next step is to find out what the buyer’s friends are looking for. Most sellers, if they see something that they can recommend for sale, want to know what the buyer wants to buy. This is what you have to do. If you don’t know what the buyer wants to buy, then ask them to be sure to tell you. If they are, ask them to tell you more and if not, they will probably give you a price estimate.
There’s another thing to do with this, too. If your buyer is looking for a new place right now, and you know what that is, then send them a crossword to see if their favorite topic is in the new listings. If it is, then they will probably be interested in the buyer. If it’s not, then you should probably not be negotiating on a current listing, because you probably need to get a different price.
If you do the latter, your chances of getting a home are better. If you do the former, then you will probably end up with a home that has a lot of the same problems that you are having now. For example, they might look at the home’s price as being too high, because they see it as too expensive to pay in installments. You can be the middleman in this scenario, and still get a good price.
