When reading an offer, keep in mind that you are out to get the best price AND the best terms for you. If you focus solely on the price, you may overlook terms that could be favorable to you as a buyer.
Some terms that may work in your favor:
higher-than-market-interest in a second mortgage for your home
the buyer will pay for most or all of the closing costs
the buyer will take care of any repairs
quick close - the buyer is pre-approved and ready to close in a timeframe that best suits you
When reading through offers, remember to look at the whole package. Take the time that you need to assess what is being offered and if it meets your needs.

After working with a number of disappointing brokers to purchase several properties to rehab and sell, I was fortunate enough to meet up with John Alford at an open house one Sunday, and subsequently with his partner, Linda Cullen, at another. Ultimately, I purchased the house Linda showed me, and worked with this them through completion of the closing. I am now working with John to identify and purchase additional properties. As a lawyer, former real estate broker and now purchaser/seller, I am extremely impressed with John's and Linda's responsiveness, transparency and follow-up. They are truly "one-stop-shopping" in terms of their knowledge of the market and helpfulness to new buyers entering it. I recommend this team to anyone who wants to deal with really professional brokers with the work ethic and honesty I think projects the best of the profession. Deidre Oren Byrne
