Welcome back toCrye-Leike Insights! Each week, we share tips, stories, and wisdom from our Crye-Leike family. This week, Jack Webb shares his expertise and gives us a few tips on making an offer on a house.



Hire a Realtor



  • When you hire Crye-Leike, you not only get a top-notch Realtor, you also will have access to moving services, relocation services, and much more.


 

Find out about the Home and Neighborhood



  • Discuss home comparables and neighborhood amenities.


 

Begin with the End in Mind



  • Think about where you want to end up when finished negotiating.


 

Find out the Seller's Motivation



  • If the home has been on the market for a long time or the seller has a big motivation for wanting to move quickly, they will be more willing to negotiate on price.


 

Find out the Home's Condition



  • Always get an inspection and find out how much maintenance will be required.


 

Get Pre-Qualified



  • You want to know what you can qualify for for your loan.

  • If you are pre-qualified, you offer looks much better to the seller.


 

Less Contingencies



  • The less contingencies that you have in you offer, the more attractive your offer looks to the seller.


 

Keep Your Emotions in Check



  • Consider how the seller will view your offer. The goal is for this to be a win-win situation for both sides.
