Now what?

Bōde’s digital marketplace enables buyers to connect directly with you, the seller, to make an offer, negotiate and finalize a contract. This automation is the first of its kind in the real estate industry! 

What happens next?

First off, you might consider messaging the viewer to garner any feedback from their tour. Opening the dialogue can also allow them to ask any questions they may have. Next, consider what happens if you receive an offer. It will be a good idea to review this process, which we have outlined for you below. Our digital platform makes the offer process easy and quick!

The Offer Process

Making an offer

Receiving an offer

Countering an offer

Agreement

The buyer clicks “Make an offer” on your listing and enters the details of their offer on your home. They will fill out their offer price, deposit amount, timelines and conditions (if any) before submitting it to you.

You will receive both an email as well as an on-platform notification to notify you that an offer on your property has been made, so keep an eye on your inbox! The offer will be detailed in the “offers” section of Bōde, where you can see all the information the buyer has entered. Bōde has made it simple and easy to accept, negotiate or counter the offer.

If you would like to counter the offer, first, accept the terms that you agree to, then you can counter on the terms you would like to change or improve. You can do this on a term by term basis so it is clear to both parties where you have agreed and where you still require agreement. There is no limit to the number of counters from each party towards an agreement, however, the deal will expire if an agreement is not met within the original offer time availability. In this event, the buyer would need to create a new offer.

Once both parties have agreed, you will receive an email as well as an on-platform notification that will take you to the populated, industry-standard, contract that reflects the terms of the offer from the previous step. Once you click “I accept” it will then be sent to the other party to “click to accept” these terms.

This process is the same regardless of whether the buyer has an agent or if they are self – represented.

If you receive an off-platform offer

You can encourage the other party to use Bōde as all the functionality is built-in for both parties creating a transparent, organized and efficient path to selling your home! This functionality is also there if the buyer is represented by an agent. If the buyer insists on a PDF or another offer off-platform, it would be prudent to read through the agreement in detail and cc help@bodecanada.com to keep us in the loop.

Contracts

Let us know if you have any questions about the contract, we would be happy to assist you.  Real Estate Lawyers are available in our Prō Marketplace if that would provide you with extra comfort and assurance.

Reminder!

Upon sale, you will need a “Real Property Report” (RPR) for closing.  If you don’t have a current RPR, simply reach out to us at help@bodecanada.com and we can refer an excellent RPR provider in your area! If you have a condo, you will need the condo documents instead of an RPR. For more information go here.
