 Seller-Seventh Inning - The Offer

Pitch 1 - The Offer

Figure the net carefully and consider any costs associated with the buyers loan as the seller( as in FHA and/or other first time home loans). It is advisable to figure your net before you even put your home on the market. Double-check payoff, taxes...even have inspections made and repairs done. Figure revenue stamps and deed preparation and commissions. Your agent can help with this and there are great places on-line to help. Make an allowance for surprises.

Pitch 2 - Negotiating skills

Negotiating is an art. Everything is negotiable. Go line by line.
Always put everything in writing. Just initialing back and forth is unacceptable in our book. It leaves too much room for error. Be clear. Put it in writimg and you can also consider times and dates for certain items to be completed like loan approval letter, inspections, repairs, etc.

Pitch 3 - Acceptance

Once you and the buyers have agreed move quickly with documents. Much of the real estate business is being conducted electronically, internet, fax...always follow up with hard copy quickly and with original signatures. Follow procedure because when there is an error the well thought out steps often save the day.

Coach's Tips






Pinch Hitters

The Accountant
Calculating every dime including interest in arrears and taxes could help you avoid a surprise at closing.

The Negotiating
Timing. Listening. Patience. Being Fair.

The Closer
Quickly signing, sealing and delivering is a good practice after both parties agree.




Angel Advocate 1
We have an FHA loan. Does it help or hurt to close in the middle of a month?
Angel Answer:
FHA requires full payment, no partial payments. If you close the 10th, the 15th or the 20th, you’ll still pay the full month.
Angel Advocate 2
We always like to sleep on major decisions. Is it okay to wait overnight to respond to an offer?
Angel Answer:
Yes. Let the other party know this. It’s usually okay.
Angel Advocate 3
My spouse travels. Can we handle our transaction by  email or fax?
Angel Answer:
Yes, almost entirely…usually followed by hard copies.
