What Exactly is a Counteroffer? If you make an offer on a home, and the seller rejects your offer and suggests different terms, that’s their counteroffer.

Real Estate Jargon

A counteroffer typically says that the seller will accept the buyer's offer subject to additional terms and/or conditions. These terms and conditions may include the sales price, the removal of certain contingencies, the good faith deposit, the inspection period ,the closing date, among others.
