Buying property Step 7

Buying a home, vacation or investment property in St. Pete. Alright, you just made on offer on the property you want to buy.

Now, you  Mr. Buyer better get yourself some Valium or a few drinks, the “waiting” for an acceptance of your offer or the waiting for a counter offer can be nerve wrecking.

Some of my buyers take it easy and relaxed, but most of them, sit by the phone and wait for my call.

They have a hard time falling asleep at night and can not concentrate on work.

This is an exciting time, for everybody in the game, buyer, seller, and Realtors.

You would think that I, the Realtor have done it so many years and some many times,

that it would not be a big deal anymore, wrong each and every real estate transaction is different and exciting and you need to focus and keep your guard up.

The moment you think ” No big deal, Walk in the park, I know it all”  you are in trouble.

I am very passionate about my job, maybe that why I still get excited about each offer, Ok enough about me. Finally the phone rings, you met with your Realtor and you look at the counter offer. Of course you are disappointed that the seller did not just sign it the way it was, but that is the name of the game and you have to look at the bright site, you are getting closer and hopefully after countering the counter offer you will eventually reach a “meeting of the minds” on your property deal, everybody is happy, everybody signs and now what once started as an offer is a legal binding contract to purchase real estate. (One tip, make sure the counter and the counter to the counter etc. and are a separate form and not on the original contract. It if goes back and forth a few times, you will not be able to read anything anymore. So, use a counteroffer form)                      Anne Hensel       727 410 7777
