New Orleans Real Estate: Can We Make A Verbal Offer?

New Orleans Home Buying Advice

Sometimes, buyers want to feel a seller out and ask if they can make a verbal offer on a house.Verbal real estate offers

Can you? Yes.

Should you? No.

Why not make a verbal offer?

Remember that old saying about something not being worth the paper it’s written on? That’s how agents and home owners feel about verbal offers.

Are you willing to risk your offer being completely ignored by the seller and their agent? Make a verbal.

Are you willing to risk someone else coming in with a written offer and bumping you out of the running? Make a verbal.

If you’re serious about purchasing a home, then you should be serious about putting it on paper, since that’s the only way that real estate contracts are binding in Louisiana.
