How do I make an Offer on a homeFree home?

The best part about taking control of your real estate transaction with homeFree.com is that you are in control of the entire process.  Most importantly, this includes negotiations and the value both the buyer and seller will get without a middleman taking thousands in commissions!

Have you ever played the age-old game of “Telephone” – one person starts a message, whispers it down the line, and then multiple people later, the last person in line repeats what they have heard……well nearly never is the starting message the same as the message the final person got.  This is kind of like the traditional real estate process with a buyer, a buyer’s realtor, a seller and the seller’s realtor.  Imagine how any given information exchange can be altered, misunderstood, or simply missed if it needs to go through multiple ears.

At homeFree, buyers and sellers negotiate directly.  This is a huge bonus for both parties because sellers want to capitalize on the highest price they can obtain; buyers want to purchase their new home at lowest price.  It is either “deal” or “no deal”.  No third parties are required to complicate the very simple process of arriving at a deal that is fair for both parties.

And never forget, no matter how you sell your home (homeFree or a realtor), it is a lawyer who closes the purchase transaction.  Realtors do NOT do this, so fear not, you have every advantage as a buyer or seller when you go direct with homeFree.

Buying this home is easy, follow these simple steps:

  1. Be pre-qualified for a mortgage

Our friends at Rocket Mortgage have a special offer for homeFree customers!

  1. Find the home you love on homeFree.com

  2. View the homeFree virtual tour and schedule a showing

  3. Submit an offer.

The Offer to Purchase can be found on the homeFree listing, by contacting the seller or requesting one from the homeFree team.  It is a simple, fillable form or you can use homeFree’s Worry Free Offer to Purchase program and have a lawyer draft it for you free of charge.  If you make an offer and it is not accepted, there is no charge for using the service, so there is no risk.  This is a hassle and worry-free experience for you!

  1. Take advantage of the discounted legal fees negotiated by homeFree on your behalf.

Whether buying through homeFree or a realtor, a lawyer is the person who handles the transaction. When the seller accepts the offer, our partner law firm will assist you with the close of the purchase at a Preferred HomeFree Rate (the lowest rate in the city). See below for your closing rates in your area:

Alberta: $799+ GST & disbursements

 

Selling this home is easy, follow these simple steps:

  1. Provide the Offer Form to Buyers (the one available through homeFree)

  1. Buyer fills out the offer and submits to you, the Seller

  1. Seller reviews the price

Decide to Accept? Reject? Or Negotiate? There will be a certain amount of time (as specified in your offer) to consider the offer.

 

  1. Seller Agrees on price

Once you have arrived at a price you are willing to accept, complete the Seller fields on the OTP (Offer to Purchase) Form but DO NOT SIGN.   Forward this offer to Edmonton Law office realestate@edmontonlawoffica.ca

 

  1. Legal Support: HomeFree’s Worry-Free Offer to Purchase Program

If you or your buyer don’t feel comfortable filling out the offer to purchase form yourself, HomeFree, along with Edmonton Law Office LLP, will help you with the preparation FREE of CHARGE.

 

As a seller, once you are prepared to accept the offer, Edmonton Law Office will assist you with the close of the purchase at a Preferred homeFree Rate of only $699 (+ GST & disbursements).

 

If you receive an offer, but you don’t arrive at a deal, there is no charge for using the Worry-Free Offer to Purchase Program, so there is no risk.  This is a hassle and worry-free experience for you!

 

  1. Completing the Sale

Once your lawyer has reviewed the Offer to Purchase, you (the Seller) should contact the buyer to advise acceptance of the offer.

 

ACCEPTing your worry-free, easy homeFree offer

If you accept the offer it will be signed by the buyer(s) AND seller(s) and witnessed by a disinterested third party

 

Request a deposit cheque from the Buyer, made out to:

Edmonton Law Office LLP. – IN TRUST”.

 

Email a copy of the completed contract to realestate@edmontonlawoffice.ca. At this point, the deposit cheque will be deposited into your lawyer’s account in trust.

 

COUNTERing the offer and making a deal: Sell Simple, Buy Better. 

If the decision is to counter the offer, return it to the buyer along with their deposit cheque, with your amendments noted. Check out this article by the R.E.C.A. to learn some great tips!

They will then have the time specified in the counter to either accept, reject, or counter again.

 

REJECTing your homeFree offer

If the offer is rejected, the deposit cheque will be kept by, or returned to, the buyer.
