Once you identify the home you want to buy, it's good to have an idea of its value before making an offer. You want your offer to be at the low end of what similar homes in the neighborhood have sold for.
Once you've determined the price you want to offer, it's time to prepare a written offer to present to the seller. Sellers pay a good deal more attention to written offers than to verbal ones. You can find contract offer forms suitable for your state at Real Estate Forms By State
Many sellers offer home warranty policies insuring that major appliances (stove, refrigerator, etc.) and home systems (heating, A/C, etc.) remain in working order during the first year you own the home.
If the seller you're working with does not, you might want to buy such a policy for yourself. This is expecially true if your new mortgage will stretch your budget a bit. This expense can usually be paid at settlement. You can find home warranty policies at Home Warranty.
