Advice for the Rookie Realtor

Get listing agent's take on writing 'perfect' offer

Dear Rookie,

  • Have preapproval letter in hand prior to showing property.

  • Let the buyer know up front what to expect.

  • Let them know they must be honest with their lender so he/she will know where to begin looking for his/her loan. Let them know all details will come out prior to close of escrow.

  • Ask the listing agent what the seller would consider a “perfect” offer…and then write it.
