Writing An Offer

Financial Considerations When Writing An Offer

When writing an offer it is common practice to make a purchase offer contingent upon obtaining a mortgage. Because of this contingency, the seller may want the details of your financial plan included with the offer to purchase.

Down Payment
When we submit the purchase offer to the sellers, we will include the down payment amount that you will apply toward the purchase. The down payment gives the seller further evidence of your qualifications to secure a mortgage loan.
