Another plug for American Home Shield. I have only heard good things about them. They have pricing options for both buyers and sellers.

In NEW JERSEY, once a seller accepts an offer and it is in attorney review, if they put in writing, that all subsequent offers are for back-up only, you can still present an offer. But this means just what it says, that if the accepted offer falls apart, the seller can go back to their "back-ups" and see if the other buyers are still interested.

I as I said before, if the seller HAS NOT put in writing that subsequent offers are for back-up only (or that they are not accepting any other offers at all), TECHNICALLY you can submit an offer right up to the day of closing.

However, in both cases, it still doesn't mean that they will accept your offer. Additionally once the offer they have is out of attorney review and "under contract", the seller can face some penalties if they cancel the previous offer and take yours, so it's highly unlikey they would.

Southwinds is a community located in the East Dover section of Toms River. The homes are very affordable and perfect for a small family or for a first time home buyer. Even though the properties are attached, you still have alot of privacy and a backyard. Close to schools, beaches, parkway and shopping. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
