When reading an offer, keep in mind that you are out to get the best price AND the best terms for you. If you focus solely on the price, you may overlook terms that could be favorable to you as a buyer.
Some terms that may work in your favor:
higher-than-market-interest in a second mortgage for your home
the buyer will pay for most or all of the closing costs
the buyer will take care of any repairs
quick close - the buyer is pre-approved and ready to close in a timeframe that best suits you
When reading through offers, remember to look at the whole package. Take the time that you need to assess what is being offered and if it meets your needs.
We, of course, are very happy and blessed to have had Sallie sell our home. Her team is wonderful also. We highly recommend Sallie Chester! Melissa B. ~June 2019
Sallie and her team were very helpful and 100% on top of the entire selling process of our condo. From our original meeting, Sallie gave us great advice on selling quickly and for a fair price. She worked tirelessly to negotiate terms with the buyers' agent about the conditions of the transaction and kept us up-to-date with any changes that had come about. We used Sallie to both purchase and sell our condo and I would be happy to recommend her to anyone buying or selling property in the Columbia area. I truly appreciated her expertise and persistence in everything she did.Joshua S. ~June 2019
Sallie was very professional and dependable in all of our dealings. We appreciated her counsel and experience, and would recommend her highly.Karen and Eddie W. ~May 2019
We recently purchased a house in Harbour Watch, that we absolutely love, through Sallie Chester. Our relationship with Sallie began with a get to know each other phone call where trust was soon established. We then made the trip from Virginia to South Carolina to meet Sallie in person, and she showed us several lots and houses that weekend, one of which we ended up purchasing. The purchase took longer than anticipated because it was initially contingent on the sale of our house in VA. Sallie was extremely patient and responsive to all of our needs throughout the entire process. Sallie is honest, hardworking and provides excellent customer service. We highly recommend using her services.Ann and Barry N. ~February 2019
