Bamks look at two things when they see an OFFER:
Naturally they look at the Offering Price,
But they also look at the STRENGTH of the Offer:
Cash is better than Financed.
Don't ask them to pay for Inspections
Don't ask them to do Repairs
Don't ask them to pay your Closing Costs.
Don't expect them to give you DISCLOSURES
Do offer a large GOOD FAITH DEPOSIT
Do ask for a short Escrow
Do use a Realtor, they do not like to deal with amateurs
You can ask them to do Section 1 repairs, but they will probably put a cap on them; I would rather use the Inspection to protect the Client and alert them that if the REPAIRS are too great, we just Walk Away.
For these reasons; do not fall in love with the house until it is really YOURS!
Good luck and may God bless
