After we have found a home that meets all of
your needs we will do the necessary research to determine the seller's
motivation and structure a successful offer. We will then draft
the “Purchase Agreement” for you, advising you on protective
contingencies, customary practices, and local regulations. At this
time you will need to provide an “earnest money” deposit, usually from
1%-3% of the purchase price. The deposit check is not cashed until
your offer has been accepted by the seller.
Access Real Estate will present your offer to

response to your offer with you. Our negotiating skills and
knowledge will benefit you in reaching a final agreement.
