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.

We worked with Stephaine Ziemann when we recently sold our home. She was always available for a quick question and solid advice. Very knowledgeable about the real estate business. We trusted her input and expertise. The buyers also didn't use an agent so with neither side represented in the traditional sense, partnering with Stephanie helped us navigate the process, stay on track with our timelines and get to the closing table effectively.
Stephanie also gave us names of companies for estimates on repairs needed.
I would recommend Stephanie. Flat fee brokers are the way to go. Very fair fees and it allows for competitive pricing of homes without having to take into account a potential 6% extra costs to selling a home.Gwyn Garner
Stephanie was easy to work with and ended up making me $28,000 more than I thought I would. "Thank You", Stephanie!Jace Wainwright
