Once you’ve received an offer, give it careful consideration. Is it what you were hoping for or is there room for negotiation?
Also, think about the position of the buyers. Do they seem genuine? Are they chain-free? Do they want to move quickly?
Even if you accept an offer, there’s nothing to stop you changing your mind and accepting a higher offer from someone else, although some people would consider this morally questionable.
If you’ve received two or more offers, you can settle for the highest one from the safest buyer. However, if your home has been on the market for some time with little interest, you may want to consider offers below the asking price.
Offers are usually made subject to survey, so will only stand provided the survey doesn’t reveal any major issues.
