Accepting an offer on the sale of your home involves multiple steps.

Receive the Offer

The first step is receiving an offer from a potential buyer. This is usually delivered in writing and includes the proposed purchase price and conditions.

Review the Offer

Carefully review the offer with your real estate agent. Look at the proposed price, closing date, contingencies, and any special requests.


If you’re not satisfied with the offer, you can negotiate. This could be the price, closing dates, contingencies, or other details.

Accept or Reject

After negotiations, you have the choice to accept or reject the offer. Your real estate agent will communicate your decision to the buyer’s agent.

Open Escrow

If you accept the offer, the next step is to open an escrow account. This is where the deposit from the buyer will be held until closing.
