How quickly can you draft an offer letter for a property,

Customer Question
How quickly can you...

How quickly can you draft an offer letter for a property, and how much will it cost? I need to make an offer this morning?

Lawyer's Assistant: It can cost anywhere from $10 to $100, depending on the type of issue and how much of the Real Estate Lawyer's time your question is expected to take (how complex and lengthy an answer you require). What steps have you taken so far? Have you prepared or filed any paperwork?

No paperwork. Want to make a cash offer to purchase a property as-is.

Lawyer's Assistant: Where is the property located?

Seattle Wa

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I just need this to happen quickly, that's all.

This is a real simple request. If it cannot be met, I will search for my own sample. Can you do this?
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Okay, I'm going to disconnect from this. It's not working.
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Please disregard my request
Real Estate Lawyer: Ely, Counselor at Law replied 1 month ago

Okay. I was happy to provide one - I simply wanted to know if you wanted specifics in the letter such as what would be the end date of the offer, form of acceptance, etc.

All the best.
