Receiving the Offer to Purchase
It is the listing agent's obligation to present all offers. Upon receipt of an offer from a Buyer, the agent meets with you, the seller and provides counsel. All terms of the offer need to be presented and discussed. The agent negotiates on your behalf. Most buyers and sellers want to arrive at a win-win agreement. Successful agents tend to be experienced negotiators and they have a track record of bringing buyers and sellers together. After an agreement is reached between the Buyer and Seller, the offer is signed by all parties and the Buyers present a check for the deposit.
