Rookie Reply: How to Close on Off-Market Properties

Description

This week’s question comes from Aaron on the Real Estate Rookie Facebook Group. Aaron is asking: What paperwork do I need to close an off-market deal? If presenting a cash offer, can it all be done between me and the seller? Do you typically ask for an inspection period?

Off-market real estate deals can seem tricky when you’ve never done one before. For the most part, investors only deal with on-market deals where their real estate agent walks them through the closing process. When you’re pursuing off-market deals, you’re on your own (for the most part), but that doesn’t mean that closing on a new deal has to be complicated.

Here are some suggestions:

Contact local real estate attorneys and escrow offices before closing on a property

Remember to include purchase contingencies (like inspections) so you’re not stuck with a bad deal

Send in a letter of intent to the seller before presenting a formal offer to see where they stand

Consult a real estate attorney to draft up a legal, enforceable purchase and sale agreement

When in doubt, lean on your escrow, title company, or attorney for the next steps

And more in the episode…
