When reading an offer, keep in mind that you are out to get the best price AND the best terms for you. If you focus solely on the price, you may overlook terms that could be favorable to you as a buyer.
Some terms that may work in your favor:
higher-than-market-interest in a second mortgage for your home
the buyer will pay for most or all of the closing costs
the buyer will take care of any repairs
quick close - the buyer is pre-approved and ready to close in a timeframe that best suits you
When reading through offers, remember to look at the whole package. Take the time that you need to assess what is being offered and if it meets your needs.

Hedy was highly recommended to us by friends, and we feel lucky to have worked with her to buy our first house. She is direct, honest, and clearly cares about people and loves her work. She is always quick to respond to emails/texts and worked hard to ensure that our offer was accepted quickly and closing went smoothly. We were nervous first-time home buyers, but Hedy's knowledge of neighborhoods & the housing market, as well as insight into potential maintenance issues and ideas for renovations, made us feel comfortable and informed during every step of process.Klesoing
