How to Refuse or Counter an Offer

So you are selling your home but you are worried. Worried that a potential buyer might come in and attempt to put in a lowball offer. What do you do when this happens? How to Refuse or Counter an Offer? First of all there is no need to worry. As the seller are not required to accept any offer written on your home. Even if they offer hundreds of thousands over asking price. You still don’t have to accept the offer if you don’t want to. 

What Is The Process to Refuse or Counter an Offer?

When you receive an unacceptable offer you can either flat out reject it, or you can choose to counter their offer. If you choose to flat out reject it we communicate this on your behalf to the other side, and it is done. They of course have the option to write a more acceptable offer which we will present to you and we start over at step one.

If you choose to counter we draft the requisite documents with the price and other details you select. This is presented to the other side and they can elect to accept or reject your counter. This process is a frequent occurrence. As a seller you don’t always have to outright accept or reject a buyers offer. You can instead adjust it to better meet your needs. Of course price isn’t always the end all be all in an offer. Timing can often be just as important. If you need a rent back, or a faster close, we can negotiate this for you.
