Discuss what is required to write an offer

Discuss with your Real Estate Broker what is required when you're ready to write an offer.

Here is most of what is required as a guide to discuss:

  • Offer price
  • Seller concessions amount (if any)
  • Earnest money amount and when it is due
  • Down payment amount and when it is due
  • Loan type or types you are considering to buy the property
  • Days until you close
  • Any dates and deadlines that are a concern from you that differ from the norm
  • Loan pre-approval letter
  • Who's paying the Closing Services Fee
