Are you writing the offer with a REALTOR? Be sure to put the date, as well as the date and time your offer expires – as well as your desired close date. You’ll need to put the full legal name and address of the seller and buyer, as well as the entire legal description of the home. Include the sale price, the deposit you’re giving, and any items that are supposed to be included in the sale and a list of conditions you’d like to be met before you’ll officially buy the house. If you are making offer without the REALTOR, be sure to ask your lawyer to check the offer before sending it.
