Most transactions in the Beach Haven West real estate market will contain a mortgage provision so a cash offer can be especially strong as it eliminates the prospect of a buyer not being approved for a loan. The closing date should also be considered. As a seller, the object is to net the most money possible from the transaction. If offers are close in price and terms, a faster closing date can mean less carrying cost on your end. The savings in mortgage payments, insurance, property taxes, etc. can make one offer far more appealing. Lastly, a home inspection is a major impediment to a home selling.
