Somewhere out there is the home of your dreams. You just have to find it.
When you know you’ve found the right property, make an offer quickly. Hesitating for a day to think it over can mean losing your dream lake home or cabin. Ask your Realtor about local market conditions and get advice about preparing a strong offer. In addition to price and closing date, your offer may contain various contingencies like financing and inspections.
Negotiate terms. Counter offers are common. In order to successfully close on a property, be prepared to be a little flexible on price, closing date, repairs, or other items.
