Minimum Dollar Amount for Home (Private): What is this?
- This is a private dollar amount that only the Homeowner can establish and view.
- This amount simply allows Homeowners to reduce the number of offers they receive by enabling the system to automatically reject any offer below your Minimum Dollar Amount.
Making an Offer: Why does OMG ask me to select if my offer is Pre-Approved, All-Cash, and/or Contingent?
- Pre-Approval: By checking this box, it means that you have secured pre-approval for a mortgage for this home. Unless you are paying all cash for the home, the presence of a pre-approval letter from a reputable mortgage company will likely strengthen your offer. Potential Buyers may also elect to upload a copy of a pre-approval letter to the offer if they have one.
- All-Cash: By checking this box, it means that you intend to pay for the home in cash, without the financial assistance of a mortgage company.
- Contingent: By checking this box, it means that you are making this offer Contingent upon some other condition. OMG has created an optional comment box for you to fill in additional details on the contingency of the offer. A common contingency would be that your offer is contingent upon the sale of your existing home or your ability to secure a mortgage.
- I accepted an offer or an offer I made was accepted, Now What?
- OMG has absolutely no involvement in the transactional process.
- Once an offer is accepted by both a Homeowner and Prospective Buyer, each party can decide to proceed on their own or with assistance from a real estate agent.
- I want to Proceed on My Own: If I choose to proceed without the assistance from a real estate agent, what happens next?
- If either party elects to proceed on their own, this means that you will be conducting your own due diligence process and securing any third parties needed to pursue and close the transaction.
- Your basic contact information will be displayed so the other party or their agent can contact you directly regarding next steps.
- OMG has created a Home Due Diligence and Closing Checklist that we hope is helpful.
- I want to Proceed with a Real Estate Agent: If I choose to proceed with the assistance from a real estate agent, what happens next?
- If either party elects to proceed with the assistance of a real estate agent, please proceed on your own to secure the services of the agent.
- Instead of displaying your own contact information, you can elect to display your real estate agent’s contact information instead.
- When discussing the transaction with a possible real estate agent, you may decide to let them know that you have a tentatively accepted offer in hand and are looking for their assistance with the due diligence and closing process. This could affect the commissions a real estate agent wishes to charge.
