Long Island Home Seller The Best Price May Not Mean The Best Offer

The Best Price May Not Mean The Best Offer



Just Because It’s The Highest Price Doesn’t Mean It’s The Best Offer…
  • The best offer may be an offer where the buyer has nothing to sell and can move right away.


  • The best offer may be a cash offer with no waiting time for a mortgage commitment.
  • The best offer may be from someone the seller feels comfortable who will take care of the house and keep the neighborhood values strong.
  • The best offer may be terms and conditions that are more favorable for you, the seller.

Ultimately this decision comes down to what price you as the seller is willing to accept, and how much risk you are willing to take. Will the house appraise for the higher price?  The price and/or conditions is only determined by what a buyer is willing to pay for your house at a particular moment in time.

Although the highest offer may seem great, there may be terms and conditions that are not in the best interest of the seller. Take the time to discuss all the factors involved in the offer and not just the price.
Don’t just focus on the price…think about all the other little details that go along with selling a house and getting to the closing table.

Remember…Negotiation is about give and take, and price is only part of the package. You want the one that is the Winning offer!
