The steps necessary to a successful home buying experience

When your Offer to Purchase is presented to the seller, he has three options:

  1. He can accept your offer
  2. He can reject your offer
  3. He can make a counteroffer

Bring a check for the earnest money with you when we present the Offer to Purchase. One percent of the sale price is usually adequate.

The Safford Group will negotiate on your behalf

When the seller accepts your offer, or you accept his counteroffer in writing, you have a binding contract. Your earnest money will be deposited in the Broker’s escrow account until closing, at which time your earnest money will go towards your purchase.

Remember, if you make a low offer on a new home and the offer is rejected or countered, another prospective buyer may submit an offer that may be accepted by the seller before you have the opportunity to submit another offer or accept the seller’s counter to your offer.

Because of this, it is in your best interest to work with us exclusively as your Buyer's Agent.
