How to Make an Offer
Buying real estate
When it comes time to make an offer, Bob Ferguson, your Royal LePage Real Estate Professional, will provide you with current market information and assist you in drafting your offer.

Presentation of the Offer

Bob Ferguson, will communicate the offer, sometimes known as an Offer to Purchase* to the seller, or the seller's representative, on your behalf. Sometimes there may be more than one offer on a property coming in at the same time. Bob will guide you through this process.

The offer can be firm or conditional:

Firm Offer to Purchase: This is usually preferable to the seller, because it means that you are prepared to purchase the property without any conditions. If the offer is accepted, the property is yours.

Conditional Offer to Purchase: This means that you have placed one or more conditions on the purchase, such as "subject to home inspection", "subject to financing" or "subject to sale of buyer's existing home". The home is not sold until all the conditions have been met.

Acceptance of the Offer

Your Offer to Purchase will be presented as soon as possible. The seller may accept the offer, reject it, or submit a counter-offer. The counter-offer may be in reference to the price, the closing date, or any number of other variables. The offers can go back and forth until both parties have agreed or one of you ends the negotiations.

*Offer to Purchase: A legal document which specifies the terms and conditions of your offer to purchase the property. In the province of Quebec, this is referred to as a "Promise to Purchase".
