Choosing the Best Offer for Your Home

Image
You and your real estate agent have worked hard to sell your home, now you have more than one offer. This is a great problem to have, but how do you determine which one is the best one? Sometimes it is very easy to determine, but sometimes there will be advantages and disadvantages for each. Here are some things to consider when evaluating offers and determining the best offer for your needs when selling a Lake of the Ozarks home.


Determine Your Selling Point What will it take to get your attention on an offer? Which terms are the most important to you?

There are many things during the closing process to consider that could help protect your interest when buying a home at the Lake of the Ozarks. One of those things is whether or not to get a home inspection done on the property in which you're interested in buying. While you may be tempted to pass on this opportunity to save a buck, skipping the home inspection could be a huge mistake. To give you an idea of why we say this, eXp Realty offers some great reasons to have a home inspection before you buy:


What You See May Not Be What You Get
No matter the age of the home, there can be costly troubles unknown to the average buyer.
