How to Make an Offer

When it comes time to make an offer, your Coldwell Banker Sarazen Realty Real Estate Professional can provide current market information and will assist you in drafting your offer.

Your Coldwell Banker Sarazen Realty Real Estate Professional will communicate your offer, sometimes known as an Offer To Purchase*, to the seller, or the seller's representative, on your behalf. Sometimes there may be more than one offer on a property coming in at the same time. Your Coldwell Banker Sarazen Realty Real Estate Professional can guide you through this process.

The offer can be Firm or Conditional.

Firm Offer To Purchase:

usually preferable to the seller, because it means that you are prepared to purchase the home without any conditions. If the offer is accepted, the home is yours.

Conditional Offer To Purchase:

means that you have placed one or more conditions on the purchase, such as "subject to home inspection," "subject to financing" or "subject to sale of buyer's existing home". The home is not sold until all the conditions have been met.

* In the province of Quebec, this is referred to as a "Promise To Purchase."

Acceptance of the Offer

Your Offer To Purchase will be presented as soon as possible. The seller may accept the offer, reject it, or submit a counter-offer.

The counter-offer may be in reference to the price, the closing date, or any number of variables.

The offers can go back and forth until both parties have agreed or one of you ends the negotiations.

Your Coldwell Banker Sarazen Realty Real Estate Professional can assist you in all aspects of your quest of find the right home for you!
