Chesterfield County Real Estate: What’s in an Offer?

Chesterfield County Real Estate: What’s in an Offer?

We have already talked about “fair” price and analyzing data when you are ready to make an offer on Chesterfield county real estate but there are still other things to consider... and having a knowledgeable realtor on your team really does make the process more enjoyable and less stressful.  Your realtor can pull a list of comparable sales which are recent sales in the area that compare closely with the property that has piqued your interest.  Specifically, your realtor will pull comparable with similar square footage, garage space, lot size and type of construction and if you are interested in a tract home, chances are, there will be exact model matches in the results.

Since there are several sources to pull information on comparables, having a knowledgeable realtor on your team is even more essential since they have access to these sources whereas the general public may not.

So, you like the house but there is a lot of work to do-

Does it matter?  Well it will if you want a home that is move in ready; however, there are some great deals when purchasing a “fixer-upper” or handyman special!  Create an estimate on how much you think it will cost to get the home  into “good shape” so you don’t pay too much for the property.  If you are willing to take on the project, here are a couple of things to consider regardless of the property condition.  Structural condition is most important; walls, ceilings, floors, doors and windows should be in fairly good shape and while an inspection will reveal the true identity of a property, knowing your new A-May-zing home is structurally sound is giving you the peace of mind you deserve.  Once you have gotten all the facts you need, your next step is writing an offer.  Be sure to ask your realtor how you can get into A-May-zing Chesterfield county real estate quickly, pay a fair price, have peace of mind and then work together to write an offer.
