Path to Purchase Step 9

Making An Offer

You’ve found a great property. It's in a good neighborhood and your profit margins look large enough. Now it’s time to make an offer! Your offer doesn’t need to be the exact asking price, but should be cognizant of factors such as how hot the local market is, how many offers you expect the seller to receive, and more importantly, what will be the highest price you’re willing to entertain in order to ensure a profitable transaction.
