You have a pre-qualified buyer who has made an offer! Your next step is to discuss the details.
Jeff’s Note: Don’t negotiate with someone verbally. Keep all things in writing to protect yourself and your potential buyer. If they submit an offer on a standard “office supply store” form letter/contract, you should use caution and be sure to have it reviewed by your attorney to make sure everything is in line with Georgia law and that the terms protect your interests.
Don’t lose control of the sale of your home. For instance, you may not want your contract to hinge on the sale of the buyer’s house. This is risky since it places you at the mercy of whoever is marketing their property and you do not know how long it will take. Before accepting any contingencies, discuss them with your lawyer for an unbiased view on the risks involved. Then, you can make an informed decision on what is acceptable and what is not.
