Making an Offer

Once you have found the property you want to buy, it’s time to put in an offer.

Remember that the asking price is how much the seller hopes to get for the property – not necessarily how much they realistically expect – and your first offer can be below the asking price.

Once you have made an offer, it is up to the seller to accept or reject it.

It is also possible that other buyers are putting offers in at the same time, so it’s a good idea to research into the typical price of such a property or you may find yourself caught in a bidding war.

If the seller does reject your first offer, you can always put in a higher offer later.
