To the greatest extent possible, these Terms of Use shall be interpreted as consistent with and supplementary to all Other Agreements.

Notice of Arbitration and Class Action Waiver: It is important that Users are aware of their respective legal rights and obligations when using the Site.

  1. Final Offer’s Role

    Our Site facilitates the purchase and sale of real estate by enabling persons selling property (“Sellers”) and their agents to list real estate for sale, and by enabling prospective buyers (“Buyers”) and/or their agents to make offers to purchase such real estate, at all times pursuant to these Terms of Use, any Other Agreements, and applicable law (collectively, the “Services”). The Site is a platform through which Sellers can access the Services to list properties, and where Buyers can offer to purchase listed properties. The actual contract for sale is directly between the Seller and Buyer; Final Offer is not a party to the sales transaction and/or the conveyance of property.

    Although the Site and our Services may assist you in performing various tasks relating to a real estate transaction, THE SITE IS NOT INTENDED TO PROVIDE YOU WITH ANY FINANCIAL, REAL ESTATE, OR RELATED ADVICE OF ANY KIND. Final Offer is not the real estate broker or real estate agent of either the Seller or the Buyer. Final Offer shall at no time be considered an employee, agent, or fiduciary of the Seller or the Buyer. Final Offer assumes no responsibility for any result or consequence related directly or indirectly to any action or inaction that you, your agent, or any other person, takes based on information available through or in connection with the Site.

  2. Permitted Use and Account Registration
    1. Eligibility. The Site is not intended for use by anyone under the age of 18, and no one under 18 is permitted to use the Site. If you use the Site, you represent and affirm to us that you are 18 years old or older. We encourage parents and guardians to closely monitor internet use by their children.
    2. Registration for Account. In order to list real estate or make offers on real estate via our Site, as well as for certain other services offered on the Site, you must set up an account. By creating an account with Us, you represent, warrant, and covenant that: (a) you are at least 18 years of age; (b) you have not previously been suspended or removed from the Site; (c) your registration and your use of the Site is in compliance with these Terms of Use and all applicable laws, rules, and regulations; (d) you have informed us of any real estate or other agents who represent you (or, if you are an agent, you have informed us of any Buyer(s) or Seller(s) you represent); and (e) all information you provide is accurate and you will keep it accurate and up-to-date at all times.
    3. User Accounts; Credential Security. Each user setting up an account on the Site is responsible for keeping the account information secret and confidential. You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password, and you agree that you are solely responsible for any offers to sell or buy, transactions engaged in, communications or other uses made using your account information, including actions taken by someone you designate as your agent (e.g., your purchasing partner, your licensed real estate agent, etc.), as well as for any obligations which may result from such use. You are responsible for updating your account information. If we believe the details are not correct, current, or complete, we have the right to refuse you access to the Site, refuse to complete or cancel your transaction(s), and to terminate or suspend your account.
    4. Agent Relationships.
      1. Sellers.Sellers must be represented by a real estate agent who is licensed in good standing in the jurisdiction where the property to be listed is located. If you are a Seller, you must (i) tell us who your agent is, (ii) enter into our Seller Agreement(s) with your agent and Final Offer as Final Offer may require; and (iii) authorize your agent to create and manage any listing(s) for property/properties in relation to which your agent represents you. Similarly, if you are an agent who represents or begins representing a Seller at any time, you must tell us you represent a Seller and who the Seller is, and must manage the listing(s) for the Seller in relation to which you are representing the Seller. If any Seller or Seller’s agent fails to comply with this section, YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO LIST PROPERTIES FOR SALE ON OUR SITE OR TO ACCEPT OFFERS, and we may refuse to permit a property to be listed, remove any listing, bar you from future use of the Site, cancel your offer(s) or transaction(s) or any attempted offers or transactions, or take any other action we deem appropriate.

        Further, once Final Offer has confirmed that an agent is representing a Seller in respect of a listed property, only the Seller’s agent is permitted to submit, change, or remove content, information, or data for posting within the applicable listing, subject at all times to these Terms of Use.

      2. Buyers. Buyers may be represented by an agent so long as any such agent is licensed in good standing in the jurisdiction where the property on which Buyer intends to bid is located. If Buyer wishes for his/her agent to submit bids on Buyer’s behalf on the Site, Buyer must (i) inform Final Offer who his/her agent is, (ii) authorize the agent to submit offers on your behalf; and (iii) enter into our Buyer Agreement(s) with the agent and Final Offer as Final Offer may require. Prior to completion of the foregoing, we are under no obligation to treat any action by the agent as authorized by the Buyer and/or as taken on the Buyer’s behalf.
      3. Agents. Agents must create accounts in order to act on behalf of Sellers or Buyers, including (without limitation) to list properties for sale or to bid on listed properties. Final Offer may require agents to verify their license and brokerage information prior to creating any agent’s account, and agents agree to cooperate fully with Final Offer to enable such license and/or brokerage information verification.
      4. Sellers and Buyers Bound by Agent Action. If you are represented by an agent, YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL ACTIONS TAKEN BY YOUR AGENT, and YOU AUTHORIZE US TO TREAT ANY ACTION TAKEN BY YOUR AGENT AS AUTHORIZED BY YOU, IRRESPECTIVE OF WHETHER (i) YOU WERE AWARE OF OR ACTUALLY AUTHORIZED SUCH ACTIONS OR (ii) THE AGENCY RELATIONSHIP WAS DISCLOSED TO US.
    5. Other Agreements Mandatory for Posting Listings or Making Offers. Sellers and their agents must enter into a Seller Agreement with us to list a property for sale. Buyers (and their agents, where applicable) must enter into a Buyer Agreement with us to make offers on listed properties. Buyers who make the winning offer on a listed property must enter into a Winning Offer Agreement with the Seller, which is automatically accepted by the Seller. You do not enter into these Other Agreements by accessing and using the Site; they must be separately executed. Unless and until you enter these Other Agreements, you are not permitted to list property for sale on our Site, make an offer on property listed on our Site, or enter, where permitted by applicable law, into a binding contract to purchase property listed on our Site, except as otherwise permitted by these Terms of Use.

You agree that any listing information you post is solely about your and/or your client’s owned property. Listings may only be submitted to or updated on our Services by the contracted listing agent for such listing. Final Offer may require that you provide proof you are the owner of the subject property, or – if you are an agent – that you have a right to post or advertise the listing on the Seller’s behalf (e.g., by requiring a copy of the agent and/or listing agreement). If Final Offer is unable to verify that you are the property owner and/or the contracted, listing agent of the property owner, we may remove the listing at any time in our sole discretion.
    7. Seller Representation and Warranties: Seller represents and warrants that Seller presently has full authority to enter into this Agreement.

  17. Dispute Resolution and Arbitration; Class Action Waiver; Jury Trial Waiver
    1. Binding Arbitration

      YOU AND WE EACH AGREE THAT ANY AND ALL CLAIMS OR DISPUTES (whether in contract, tort, or otherwise) YOU MAY HAVE WITH, AGAINST, OR CONCERNING FINAL OFFER WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING ARBITRATION, except as set forth below. This includes any claims against other parties (such as our officers, directors, employees, agents, or third-party vendors) whenever you also assert claims against us in the same proceeding; it also includes questions about whether the claim or dispute can be arbitrated, whether this arbitration agreement is valid and enforceable, and the scope of this arbitration agreement. You and we each also agree that this agreement affects interstate commerce so that the Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law, not state law, apply and govern the enforceability of this dispute resolution provision (despite the general choice of law provision set forth below). THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY IN ARBITRATION, AND COURT REVIEW OF AN ARBITRATION AWARD IS LIMITED. THE ARBITRATOR MUST FOLLOW THIS AGREEMENT AND CAN AWARD THE SAME DAMAGES AND RELIEF AS A COURT (INCLUDING ATTORNEYS’ FEES).

      For any and all disputes or claims you have, you must first give us an opportunity to resolve your claim by sending a written description of your claim to Final Offer, LLC, 18 Shipyard Drive, Suite 3A, Hingham, MA 02043. You and we each agree to negotiate your claim in good faith. You agree that you may not commence any arbitration or court proceeding, and any claim you bring against us in arbitration or in court shall be dismissed, unless you first give us notice of your claim as required in this section, we are unable to resolve the claim within 60 days after we receive your claim description, and you have made a good faith effort to resolve your claim directly with us during that time.

      If we are unable to resolve your claim within 60 days despite those good faith efforts, then either you or we may start arbitration proceedings. To begin arbitration, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to our registered agent (see the “How to Contact Us” section below) and to Judicial Mediation and Arbitration Services (“JAMS”). The arbitration of all disputes will be administered and conducted by JAMS under its rules as applicable at the time the arbitration is commenced. For claims less than $75,000, the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules will apply; for claims over $75,000, the JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules will apply. The JAMS rules are available at www.jamsadr.com or by calling 1-800-352-5267. The arbitration of all disputes will be conducted by a single arbitrator and will take place in the county of the last address we have on file for you, unless we agree the arbitration will be conducted at a different location. For claims that total less than $10,000, you may instead choose to have the arbitration conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator or through a telephonic hearing. Costs and fees of the arbitration will be allocated as set forth in the JAMS rules applicable the arbitration proceeding. This agreement to arbitrate does not preclude you or us from bringing claims in a small claims court of competent jurisdiction if the JAMS rules applicable to dispute between you and us so permit. For the avoidance of doubt, you and we both agree that the arbitrator(s) are authorized to award relief only on behalf of the individual parties to any arbitration and only to the extent of each party’s individual claims asserted in the arbitration.

      The above agreement to arbitrate is subject to the following exceptions:
      - We may file an action seeking injunctive or other equitable relief in any court of competent jurisdiction;
      - In the event that the arbitration agreement in these Terms is held to be unenforceable, any claim against us (except for small-claims court actions) must be brought exclusively in a federal or state court located in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and you consent to the jurisdiction of those courts for such purposes; any such action remains fully subject to the Class Action Waive and Jury Trial Waiver set forth herein.

    2. Class Action Waiver:YOU AND WE EACH AGREE THAT ANY PROCEEDINGS, WHETHER IN ARBITRATION OR COURT, WILL BE CONDUCTED ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A CLASS, REPRESENTATIVE, MASS, OR CONSOLIDATED ACTION If we believe that any claim you have filed in arbitration or in court is inconsistent with this limitation, then you agree that we may seek an order from a court determining whether your claim is within the scope of this class action waiver. If a court or arbitrator determines in an action between you and us that any part of this Class Action Waiver is unenforceable with respect to any claim, the arbitration agreement and Class Action Waiver will not apply to that claim, but they will still apply to any and all other claims that you or we may assert in that or any other action.
    3. Jury Trial Waiver: If a claim proceeds in court rather than through arbitration, YOU AND WE EACH WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL.
  18. Miscellaneous
    1. No Waiver: If We delay or fail to enforce any of these Terms, it shall not mean that We have waived our right to do so.
    2. Assignment: We shall be entitled to assign any of our rights and obligations under these Terms; any attempted assignment by you is void without our prior written consent.
    3. Severability. If it is found by a court that any of these Terms for any reason cannot be enforced, this shall not prevent the other provisions from continuing to apply.
    4. Third Parties. Any person that is not a party to these Terms shall have no rights to enforce any term of these Terms and Conditions. Only we and you have rights and obligations under these Terms.
    5. Force Majeure. For the purposes of these Terms, "Force Majeure" means any cause beyond our control including, without limitation, act of God, war, insurrection, riot, civil disturbances, acts of terrorism, fire, explosion, flood, theft of essential equipment, malicious damage, strike, lock out, weather, pandemics, epidemics, third party injunction, national defense requirements, actions taken by the police, acts or regulations of national or local governments. We will not be liable to you for failure to perform any obligation under these Terms, including the Purchase Policy, to the extent that the failure is caused by Force Majeure.
    6. No Partnership or Agency: Nothing in these Terms and no action taken by you or us under these Terms creates, or will be deemed to create, a partnership, joint venture or establish a relationship of principal and agent or any other relationship between you and us beyond any contractual relationship established under these Terms.
    7. Governing Law. These Terms, and any dispute arising therefrom or relating thereto, will be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of the state of Delaware.
    8. Entire Agreement. These Terms and Conditions constitute the entire agreement between You and Us in connection to its subject matter and supersede any previous terms and conditions, agreement or arrangement between You and Us. Each of us agree that we have not entered into these Terms and Conditions in reliance on, and shall have no remedy in respect of, any statement, representation, covenant, warranty, undertaking or indemnity (whether negligently or innocently made) by any person (whether party to these Terms of Conditions or not) other than as expressly set out in these Terms and Conditions. Nothing in this clause shall operate to limit or exclude any liability for fraud.

Final Offer Listing & Offer Rules

  1. Definitions
    1. List Price is the monetary amount at or above which Seller has committed to sell the Property, provided the buyer also has accepted the Offer Terms.
    2. Final Offer Price is the monetary amount that Seller has committed to accept from a buyer to place the Property under contract immediately, provided the buyer also has accepted the Final Offer Terms. The Final Offer Price is optional, and can be added or removed from a listing up to 24 hours prior to the offer window ending.
    3. The Offer Window is the length of time during which Seller will accept higher offers once an offer meets or exceeds the List Price and is accompanied by acceptance of the Offer Terms. Seller and their Agent agree and understand that the Offer Window does not begin on a specific day or time like that of a traditional auction. When listing the Property, Seller and their Agent set the duration of the Offer Window, which may be a minimum of one (1) day up to a maximum of thirty (30) days. The Offer Window will end at 5:00 pm in the time zone in which the Property is located. However, whenever a higher Offer is made within 15 minutes of the Offer Window’s planned ending, the timer will be reset to 15 minutes.
    4. Offer means any bid and/or offer made by a Buyer (and/or Buyer’s agent) to purchase a property listed on the Final Offer Service. A Conditional Offer is a type of Offer requesting that the Seller change the List Price or any Offer Term(s) of a listing.
    5. Offer Price is the monetary amount of a Buyer’s offer.
    6. Terms are Seller’s required terms of sale. Seller is required to publicly disclose the Terms applicable to any offer made during the Offer Window (the “Offer Terms”), as well as the Terms applicable to the Final Offer (the “Final Offer Terms”).
    7. Term options may have a positive or negative value attached to them by the Seller. As a Buyer selects options for each Term as part of submitting an Offer, the sum of these values is called the Value of Accepted Terms.
    8. Total Offer Value is an amount calculated by adding the Value of Accepted Terms to the Offer Price.
    9. The Offer Summary is provided as a convenience to the Buyer and their agent to review the Offer Price, Value of Accepted Terms, accepted terms and calculated dates and deposit amounts that comprise their offer. The Offer Summary is generated at the end of the offer process, right before an offer is officially made.
    10. The Winning Offer is defined as either: (a) acceptance of the Final Offer Price, accompanied by acceptance of the Final Offer Terms, prior to the Offer Window beginning or expiring; or (b) if the Final Offer Price has not been offered, an Offer that meets or exceeds the List Price, is accompanied by acceptance of the Offer Terms, and has the highest Total Offer Value at the expiration of the Offer Window.
    11. The Winning Offer Deposit is the deposit owed by the Buyer who submits a Winning Offer.
  2. Listings
    1. All listings must be listed by a real estate agent licensed in the state the property is located in. Agents must register with Final Offer and have their license and brokerage information verified prior to using the Final Offer Service.
    2. Sellers and their agents must create a listing in order to offer property for sale via the Site. All listings must include:
      1. Seller’s List Price.
      2. The duration of the Offer Window.
      3. A minimum of 1 photo of the property.
      4. Seller’s Offer Terms for the listed property, including:
        1. For each Term relating to the listing, at least one option to be provided to Buyers;
        2. If Seller provides more than one option for any Term, Seller may attach a positive or negative value to the options for such Term that, if selected, will be added to or subtracted from the Offer Price made by a Buyer; provided that for each Term, there must be at least one option with no value attached;
        3. If the seller and seller’s agent have agreed to a variable rate commission, the agent must provide 1) the percent commission in a co-brokered transaction and 2) the percent commission in a direct transaction.
          1. The “Direct Offer” term will be added to listings with variable rate commissions. The value attached to this term is a percentage, equal to the net difference in these commissions. Only buyers who make an offer directly (without an agent) will be able to accept this term, which will include a positive value equal to the Offer Price multiplied by the variable rate commission percentage;
    3. Sellers and their agents can include an optional Final Offer Price on a listing. The Final Offer Price can be added or removed from a listing up to 24 hours prior to the Offer Window ending.
      1. Seller’s Final Offer Terms for the listed property, including for each Term relating to the listing, at least one option to be provided to Buyers. Sellers are not permitted to assign a value(s) to options connected to Final Offer Terms.
    4. Listings may include additional content or information provided by the Seller and their agent to the extent permitted by the Terms of Use and these Final Offer Rules, including (without limitation) floor plans, embedded 3D tours, responses to Buyer questions, or other Seller-provided information.
    5. Sellers and their agents can add disclosures to listings, including (without limitation) a statement of property condition, lead paint disclosure(s), septic system disclosure(s), smoke detector and/or carbon monoxide compliance certification(s), home inspection consumer fact sheet(s), or other Seller-provided information.
    6. Listings may include additional content or information provided by third-party data sources, including (without limitation) publicly available property data, sale history, tax history, school systems, or other information.
    7. Final Offer reserves the right to review listings prior to posting them on the Site. A Final Offer administrator may reject any listing, and/or require Seller and their agent to provide further information, cure deficiencies, or take any other action Final Offer deems necessary or appropriate for compliance with the Terms of Use and Final Offer Rules, prior to posting the listing on the Final Offer Site.
    8. With the approval of Final Offer, listings can be submitted for immediate publication, or scheduled for publishing on a certain date.
    9. Seller and their agent acknowledge and agree that listings, and all content, information, and data relating thereto – including (without limitation) pricing and Seller’s Terms – are publicly posted on the Internet and thus accessible to the general public.
  3. Managing Published Listings
    1. Once published, the listing can be managed by the seller’s agent. A summary of all possible changes to the published listing can be found in the table below:
      1. Depending on whether it is before or during an active Offer Window, the agent can or cannot make certain changes to a listing.
      2. A Final Offer administrator will review and approve all new and updated questions and answers prior to being displayed on a listing.

  4. Buyer Requirements for Making Offers
    1. As conditions precedent to submitting Offers for listed properties, Buyers must:
      1. Within the Buyer’s account on the Site, list any co-purchaser(s) (such as spouses, partners, family members, etc.) who will be a party to the purchase of any listed property (for convenience, the Buyer and all such listed co-purchasers are referred to herein as “Buyer”);
      2. Use an unaffiliated third-party service designated by Final Offer and available via the Site (the “Buying Power Service”) to approve a monetary amount that represents Buyer’s buying power for making Offers for listed properties on the Site (the “Buying Power”). Buyers (and/or their agent(s)) understand and agree that, in order to make offers on the Site, every Buyer (including listed co-purchasers) must obtain an estimate of Buying Power from the Buying Power Service. Once approved, Buying Power is valid for 90 days.
      3. Buyer agrees to provide their credit card information to Final Offer’s third-party payment processor. Buyer understands that this credit card will not be charged by Final Offer unless Buyer either (i) fails to initiate payment for the Winning Offer Deposit within 24 hours of the Winning Offer; or (ii) initiates payment for the Winning Offer Deposit within 24 hours but the Buyer’s funds are not received by Escrow Agent within the three (3) business days after the expiration of the 24-hour period for initiating the payment transaction. In the event of (i) or (ii) above, Buyer authorizes Final Offer to charge Buyer’s credit card $2,500, to which Seller shall be entitled, less a handling fee of $500 to be retained by Final Offer; and
      4. Execute such Other Agreement as Final Offer may require Buyer to enter into in order to make Offers on the Site.
    2. In the event that an Offer made by the Buyer is deemed the Winning Offer, Buyers are not required to obtain any financing from the Buying Power Service and are free to obtain financing from the lender of their choice (if financing is required for the purchase transaction). Buyers further acknowledge and agree that the terms of the purchase transaction are not conditioned upon the use of the Buying Power Service’s products or services.
    3. Buyers expressly authorize Final Offer to share their contact information (including name, address, email and phone) with the Buyer Power Service. Buyers further acknowledge and agree that any information necessary to evaluate the financial condition or creditworthiness of the Buyer Profile must be provided by the individuals associated with the Buyer Profile directly to the Buyer Power Service.
    4. The Buyer Power Service is offered by a third-party partner that is not affiliated with or controlled by Final Offer, and Final Offer is not responsible for any information provided by and/or the Buying Power provided by the Buying Power Service. Buyer (and/or Buyer’s agent) agrees Final Offer has no liability or responsibility with respect to the Buyer Power Service, and information provided by the Buyer Power Service, or Buyer’s use thereof.
    5. Final Offer is not a lender and does not guarantee that Buyers can obtain financing in the amount of the Buying Power. Buyers acknowledge and agree that Final Offer is not a creditor and does not evaluate any financial information or make any determination regarding the financial condition, creditworthiness, or Buying Power of the Buyer Profile or associated individuals. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if any Buyer makes and Offer that is deemed the Winning Offer, such Buyer is bound to purchase the property even if Buyer cannot obtain financing sufficient to pay the purchase price, unless such Winning Offer contains an express financing contingency or otherwise prohibited by applicable law.
    6. Buyers may choose to authorize a real estate agent to make offers on their behalf for a specific property or may choose to make offers on their own. Agents must be licensed in the state that the property is located and must register with Final Offer to have their license and brokerage information verified prior to using the Final Offer Service to make offers on a property.
      1. Once assigned, the buyer or their agent can make offers on the specified property until the Offer Window closes.
  5. The Offer Window
    1. The Offer Window begins once an Offer is made that (i) meets or exceeds the List Price and (ii) is accompanied by acceptance of the Seller’s Offer Terms (the “Commencing Offer”).
    2. In the event that a buyer offers the Final Offer Price and accepts the Final Offer Terms before the beginning of, or during, the Offer Window, the Offer Window shall be immediately closed, and no other offers shall be submitted by Buyer and/or their agent or accepted by Seller and/or their agent.
    3. If no Buyer makes a Final Offer within the Offer Window, the Offer Window remains open for the period set by the Seller and their agent and closes at 5:00 pm (in the time zone in which the Property is located) on the last day of such period. However, whenever a higher Offer is made within 15 minutes of the Offer Window’s planned ending, the timer will be reset to 15 minutes.
  6. Offers
    1. By submitting an Offer, Buyer commits to purchase the property for the Offer Price contained in the Offer, subject to all Terms accepted in connection with the Offer, and subject to payment of the Final Offer Fee to Final Offer, if applicable. Buyer understands, acknowledges and agrees that the Offer shall legally bind Buyer, except where and only to the extent that applicable law would not consider such Offer to be legally binding.
      1. Notwithstanding the above, Buyer shall not owe the Final Offer Fee where Buyer (i) is the first to submit an Offer on the Property that is for the exact List Price and is accompanied by acceptance of the Offer Terms, and (ii) such Offer is deemed the Winning Offer.
    2. An Offer may be made on a listed property only prior to the commencement of, or during, the Offer Window.
    3. If submitting an Offer before the Offer Window has commenced, a Buyer may select from three (3) options:
      1. Submit a Commencing Offer. Upon submission, the Commencing Offer opens the Offer Window, after which other Buyers may bid on the property.
      2. Submit a Conditional Offer Request. This does not open the Offer Window; instead, the Seller may elect to respond to the Conditional Offer Request.
      3. Make the Final Offer. Submission of the Final Offer immediately executes the Winning Offer Agreement and ends the Offer Window, if applicable.
    4. If submitting an Offer after the Offer Window has commenced, a Buyer has two (2) options:
      1. Make a higher Offer: for this, the Total Offer Value must be at least 0.5% higher than the Current Highest Offer. In addition, the Offer Price must always be higher than the List Price. The higher Offer must be accompanied by acceptance of the Offer Terms. Immediately after making such a higher Offer, the Buyer’s Offer becomes the Current Highest Offer and is publicly visible in the listing’s Offer history.
      2. Make the Final Offer. Submission of the Final Offer immediately executes the Winning Offer Agreement and ends the Offer Window, if applicable.
    5. All Offers made by a Buyer (and/or Buyer’s agent, where applicable) must: (a) Include their Offer Price; and (b) Accept one of the available options for each of the Seller’s required Terms. Once submitted, the Offer will be publicly visible in the listing’s offer history.
    6. A Buyer cannot make a subsequent Offer on a property if they hold the Current Highest Offer on that same property. However, a Buyer can make a Final Offer at any time prior to the close of the Offer Window.
    7. The sum of an offer’s Offer Price may never exceed the Buyer’s Buying Power. A Buyer (and/or Buyer’s agent, where applicable) may make offers on multiple properties simultaneously so long as the cumulative total Offer Price of all such Offers does not exceed the Buyer’s Buying Power amount.
    8. Buyer, and their Agent, where applicable, understand and agree that improper bidding practices, including, but not limited to, placing bids to inflate the Property price for the benefit of the Seller during the Offer Window, shall not be tolerated within the Final Offer Service and may result in Buyer’s, and their Agent’s, access to the Final Offer Service being terminated.
  7. Final Offers
    1. A “Final Offer” is made when a Buyer makes an Offer (i) for the Final Offer Price, in which Buyer also (ii) accepts the Final Offer Terms.
    2. A Final Offer can be made before the commencement of, or during, any Offer Window.
    3. Submission of the Final Offer immediately executes the Winning Offer Agreement and ends the Offer Window, if applicable.
    4. The Final Offer will be publicly visible in the listing’s offer history.
  8. Winning Offers
    1. The Winning Offer is defined as either: (a) acceptance of the Final Offer Price, accompanied by acceptance of the Final Offer Terms, prior to the Offer Window beginning or expiring; or (b) if the Final Offer Price has not been offered, an Offer that meets or exceeds the List Price, is accompanied by acceptance of the Offer Terms, and has the highest Total Offer Value at the expiration of the Offer Window.
    2. Where Buyer’s Offer is deemed the Winning Offer, Buyer (i) agrees Buyer is bound to purchase the property, and commits to purchase the property subject to these Terms of Use (including the Final Offer Rules), and (ii) agrees to pay to Final Offer the Final Offer Fee, if applicable, at or before the time of closing of the real estate transaction.
    3. At the time the Winning Offer is determined, a separate Winning Offer Agreement memorializing Buyer’s commitment to purchase the property from Seller, and Seller’s commitment to sell the property to Buyer, will be generated for automatic execution by Buyer and Seller.
      1. This Winning Offer Agreement is deemed executed by Buyer upon attachment thereto of documentation evidencing Buyer’s commitment to purchase the property, such as the executed Buyer Agreement.
      2. This Winning Offer Agreement is deemed accepted by Seller upon attachment thereto of documentation evidencing Seller’s commitment to sell the property, such as the executed Seller Agreement. Upon such acceptance, the Winning Offer Agreement shall form a legally binding agreement, except where not permitted under applicable law.
    4. Starting at the moment Buyer’s Offer is determined to be the Winning Offer, the winning Buyer has twenty-four (24) hours to make the Winning Offer Deposit. The Winning Offer Deposit must be initiated within 24 hours of submitting the Winning Offer. In all cases, Buyer’s Winning Offer Deposit must be received by the Escrow Agent within three (3) business days after the expiration of the above 24-hour period. Together, the initial 24-hour period combined with the ensuing 3 business days is referred to as the “Winning Offer Deposit Period.”
    5. Buyer expressly authorizes Final Offer to charge Buyer’s credit card if Buyer (i) fails to initiate payment for the Winning Offer Deposit within twenty-four (24) hours of the Winning Offer; or (ii) initiates payment for the Winning Offer Deposit within twenty-four (24) hours, but the Buyer’s funds are not received by Escrow Agent within the Winning Offer Deposit Period. In the event of (i) or (ii) above, Buyer authorizes Final Offer to charge Buyer’s credit card $2,500, to which Seller shall be entitled, less a handling fee of $500 to be retained by Final Offer.
    6. Buyer acknowledges and agrees that Seller is under no obligation to sell the property to Buyer if Buyer fails to initiate payment for the Winning Offer Deposit within twenty-four (24) hours of the Winning Offer, or if Final Offer does not receive the full Winning Offer Deposit within the Winning Offer Deposit Period. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Seller subsequently provides Buyer with a written commitment to sell the Property to Buyer, and Buyer initiates payment for the Winning Offer Deposit and provides written evidence thereof to Final Offer and Seller, then Buyer shall be entitled to a refund of the $2,500 fee, less the $500 handling fee retained by Final Offer.
    7. In the event that either Buyer or Seller refuses to comply with the Winning Offer Agreement at any time after the Buyer’s full payment of the Winning Offer Deposit within the Winning Offer Deposit Period, Seller agrees that Escrow Agent shall transfer the Winning Offer Deposit held in escrow as instructed by the agents and/or attorneys of Buyer and Seller, less a $500 handling fee to be retained by Final Offer.
  9. Conditional Offers
    1. A Conditional Offer is a request from a Buyer to the Seller to change the List Price or any Offer Terms of a listing. As an example: If a listing’s Terms prohibit inspection contingencies, a Buyer could make a Conditional Offer asking the Seller to accept a purchase price alongside an inspection contingency.
    2. Conditional Offers can only be made before an Offer Window commences. Once the Offer Window commences, Conditional Offers are not permitted.
    3. A Conditional Offer must contain (i) the Offer Price the Buyer proposes, which can be less than, equal to, or greater than the List Price, and/or (ii) the Terms the Buyer proposes the Seller to change.
    4. The Seller is not bound to consider or accept the Conditional Offer. If the Seller does not respond to the Conditional Offer, the Conditional Offer lapses automatically. Seller may accept or reject the Conditional Offer for any reason or no reason, provided that such acceptance or rejection complies with these Terms of Use and Final Offer Rules and applicable law. If rejected, the Buyer and their agent will be notified of the rejection.
    5. Seller accepts the Conditional Offer by editing the Terms of the listing to include those changes requested by the Buyer. Once approved by a Final Offer administrator, such updated Terms will be accessible on the listing only to the Buyer who submitted the Conditional Offer (and/or Buyer’s agent), so that such Buyer may make an Offer under such updated Terms.
      1. Once such updated Terms become accessible to Buyer (and/or Buyer’s agent), Buyer (and/or Buyer’s agent) has twenty-four (24) hours to make an Offer which accepts the updated Terms (provided that the Offer Price must be greater than or equal to the Offer Price included in the Conditional Offer).
      2. After the Buyer makes such Offer, the Offer Window will commence, and the Terms of the applicable listing that Seller updated in response to the Conditional Offer will become accessible to the general public, so that other Buyers can include those Terms as part of other Offers.
  10. Conditional Final Offers
    1. A Conditional Final Offer is a request from a Buyer to a Seller to change the Final Offer Price or Final Offer Terms of a listing.
    2. Conditional Final Offers may be made prior to the commencement of, or during, an Offer Window.
    3. A Conditional Final Offer must contain (i) the Offer Price the Buyer proposes, which must in all cases be equal to or greater than the Final Offer Price, and (ii) the Final Offer Terms the Buyer proposes the Seller to change, including the Buyer’s requested change(s).
    4. The Seller is not bound to consider or accept the Conditional Final Offer. If the Seller does not respond to the Conditional Final Offer, the Conditional Final Offer lapses automatically. Seller may accept or reject the Conditional Final Offer for any reason or no reason, provided that such acceptance or rejection complies with these Terms of Use and Final Offer Rules and applicable law. If rejected, the Buyer and their agent will be notified of the rejection.
    5. Seller accepts the Conditional Final Offer by editing the Terms of the listing to include those changes requested by the Buyer. Once approved by a Final Offer administrator, such updated Terms will be accessible on the listing only to the Buyer (and/or Buyer’s agent) who submitted the Conditional Final Offer, so that such Buyer may make a Final Offer under such updated Terms.
      1. Once such updated Final Offer Terms become accessible to Buyer (and/or Buyer’s agent), Buyer (and/or Buyer’s agent) has twenty-four (24) hours to make a Final Offer which accepts the updated Terms (provided that the Offer Price of such Final Offer must be greater than or equal to the Offer Price included in the Conditional Final Offer).
      2. After the Buyer successfully makes such Final Offer, the Offer Window will immediately close and Buyer’s Final Offer will be deemed the Winning Offer.
