If you are selling your property through an estate agent then any interested parties must make an offer through them. All offers must be given to you in a timely manner, and in writing, however it is usually best to discuss any offers with your agent in detail as well. If there is more than one interested party, your agent will keep you up to date with competing offers.
An offer involves much more than just a price, so you should consider all the details of an offer, including:
- How the buyer is funding the purchase
- Is there a chain involved? If so, how long is it and at what stage is it currently?
- Proposed timescales
- What they want included in the sale (i.e. kitchen appliances, furniture etc)
You don’t have to choose the highest bidder, in fact you should consider your aims and how this relates to the buyer’s situation. If you want to move quickly, a chain free first time buyer or someone who has already sold their property may be the best option.
