Before the offer to purchase is created, you must be at least pre-qualified or, better yet, pre-approved by a lender, unless you are paying cash.
A pre-approval letter is one of the best negotiating tools a buyer can have. It shows the seller that you are financially able to purchase the home. After you have found the right home, it is time to prepare the offer.
The seller accepts the offer. Everyone is happy and as soon as both sides sign the offer letter, you’re officially under contract and on your way to buying a house!
The seller makes a counteroffer. You can either accept this counteroffer, go back with another offer of your own, or walk away.
The seller declines the offer. You could then try to make a more appealing offer, if your budget allows, or move on to find another house.
