Hello there,

I just posted a message on your account page ... Short version: this is a great post, but many people will not even get to read it and the people most able to give you the best advice/feedback are going to miss your question altogether!


Offer/ Letter of Intent

I like the lay out of your letter. Do you get good response from the agents? At what point do you sign sign the purchase and sales contract? Typically an offer is a purchase contract completed and signed by you. If the seller accepts the terms outlined in the contract/offer, it then becomes the binding contract.

Offer/Letter of Intent - Agent DISSATISFACTION

Hi all, I do like the letter of intenent but let me share with you what i experienced. I looked at a REO with the listing agent. On the next day I emailed the agent my offer and terms asking her to make a verbal offer as outlined. The REO was on the market less than 2 weeks/perhaps just 8 days. The agent replies to my email and says the bank does not accept verbal offers and wants to know if I will have an inspection performed. The kicker for me was what she then said, "There are many offers on this house and the bank is looking at one positive offer which looks like the they will accept. I did not feel comfortable with her statement. Also, she said she is not accussomed to offers being made asking for the bank to finance the deal (along with letter of proof of funds) which I told her the reason I am asking the bank to finance the offer is because I have another house under contract and did not want to touch the funds. Also, get this folks, I told her that the offer would be in my name AND d/b/a (my company name)- Just a bit mad but I will get over it.

I have not sent this letter out because I wanted to see what everyone thought of it. I will let everyone know if this letter goes well.

My broker bailed on me because he thought it wasn't in his best interest in making all these "unreasonable" offers, but did state that once I get in under contact he will help me. No way..... I'm doing all the work. I do have an attorney that will review all contacts.

boconnor -- I really haven't gotten that far as when I will sign a purchase contact. If they agree to my letter, I will then forward a purchase contact and then go from there, I suppose. When I send my letter, I will also send my proof of funds letter.

Thanks everyone
