  Manning Realty

Initial offer to buy or sell answered with a revised offer. For example, a buyer offers $500,000 for a home put on the market. The owner rejects the offer but submits a counteroffer for $525,000. Offers and counteroffers are not limited to price, but comprise such matters as financing arrangements and apportionment of closing costs.
