After a buyer has submitted an offer to purchase, and the pre-approval, you may or may not write a counter offer. A counter offer will demonstrate that you have accepted the offer, including the amount of earnest money.
There are three different ways of counter offers, either you accept, decline or counter-bid and address particular items.
Your real estate sales agent will help you to pre-qualify potential buyers to ease your decision.
However, the final decision if you accept the offer or not is always yours. When it comes to negotiations, your real estate agent will assist you and be the liaison between you and the seller or seller’s agent.
