 The Major Elements Of An Offer

Depends on the market and the buyer, but generally the price offered is different from the asking price

These might include "subject to financing, subject to home inspection, subject to the sale of the purchaser's property, etc."

Inclusions and Exclusions
These might include appliances and certain fixtures or decorative items, such as window coverings and mirrors.
