4. A disclaimer will appear. Click "Yes" to continue and create draft offers for your chosen properties.
Adjusting Your Bulk Offers
You can update most fields individually, instead of using the “Bulk Adjustments” function.
Make adjustments to all of your offers by clicking on the "Bulk Adjustments" button. Fill in the following fields:
Transaction ID: This dropdown field allows you to link your offer to a specific transaction. If you can't find a suitable transaction ID, you can create a new one.
Discount from List: Here you can specify a discount from the list price of the property. For example, if a property is listed for $100,000 and you want to offer 5% less, you would enter 5 in this field. The system will calculate your offer price as $95,000.
Offer Amount: Here you to state the total amount you're offering for the property. This field is independent of the "Discount from List" field. It allows you to set a specific offer amount regardless of the list price.
Deposit as Percent of Offer: This field lets you set a deposit as a percentage of the offer. This is the amount you are willing to put down upfront to secure the property once the offer is accepted.
Deposit: Conversely, if you prefer to specify a deposit amount instead of a percentage, you can input the specific cash amount you'll put down if the seller accepts your offer.
Financing: Here, select your financing option. You can select either “Cash” or “Pre-Approved Mortgage”, depending on your financial arrangement.
Days to Close: Here, you can input the number of days you intend to close the transaction by. This can demonstrate your readiness to proceed with the deal.
Days to Cancel: This field allows you to specify the number of days within which you can cancel the offer. This is an important part of your offer, as it gives you a specified amount of time to back out if you find something unsatisfactory.
Title Company: Use this dropdown menu to select your preferred title company. The chosen company will manage the legal paperwork of transferring ownership of the property from the seller to you.
Deposit Held By: Here you select the entity that will hold the deposit in an escrow account until the transaction is finalized. This could be the title company, a lawyer, or a real estate broker.
Remember, you need to fill in all these fields before you can submit your bulk offers. Be sure to review them carefully to ensure all the information is accurate.
Reviewing and Submitting Your Offers
It's time to submit your offers:
If the status is "Missing information", fill in the missing fields and click the “save” icon before submitting.
If the bulk offers status is "Ready to send", select the bulk offers you want to submit and click "Submit Offers".
Click “Yes” on the disclosure pop-up to confirm the submission of your bulk offers.
Accessing and Managing an Offer
After you have successfully submitted your offers, you can view and manage them by going to the "Offers" tab and selecting the offer you want to manage.
Once the offer has been submitted, the counterparty will receive a notification. They will have the option to either Accept, Counter, Decline, or Void the offer. After they have chosen an action, you will receive a notification and can respond accordingly from the "Offers" page. For instance, if the counterparty has chosen to counter the offer, you now have the option to "Accept, Counter, Decline, Void" in response.
That's it! Convenient and efficient.
