Winning Strategies for Multiple Offer Situations

Today, we're going to talk about the top strategies you can use in a multiple offer situation to ensure that you get the house you want.

Make sure you write the offer price reasonably. Put your best foot forward. Sellers are looking at how much money they can net. Your purchase price should reflect your top dollar. Also take closing costs into account. Keep in mind what the seller will net when writing your offer.

Another thing you can do is be flexible with the closing date. Some sellers want to close as soon as possible, and some need more time to move. By working with the seller and making the transaction easier on them, your offer will definitely stand out.

Finally, offer to take the property as is. Don't ask the seller to do any repairs, and put that in your offer right away. This is a good idea if you are making an offer on a newer house or a condo. You will still have an inspection so you know what you're getting into, and you can still walk away. But the seller knows that you won't try to nickle and dime them on repairs.

Three Things to Guarantee a Full Price Offer

Today, we’ll discuss the three things to guarantee a full price offer on your listing.

  1. Price your home correctly. You want to put a price out there to attract not one buyer, but several buyers immediately. That’s your opportunity to capture the demand of the buyer and get top dollar for the house. In some cases, this can start a bidding war with multiple offers simultaneously.
  2. Prepare prior to listing your home on the market. Ensure you stage the house correctly in the best way possible. Ask yourself if the property condition is its best.
  3. Hire a Realtor with an aggressive marketing plan. We expose our clients’ properties not only to the local population or just the West Coast, but we also market listings nationally and internationally.
