Getting Your Offer Accepted!

Are you finding the perfect home, submitting an Offer only to find that you’re competing against multiple Offers?  Yes, the market has changed due to low home inventory.  So, how do you stand out and get your Offer accepted?

First impressions matter – sellers are and can be very sensitive with the sale of their home and they develop their own personal feelings about buyers if they meet them.  If you’re meeting the sellers, put your best foot forward and make a solid impression.  If you can’t meet the sellers, share a personal letter about why you want to purchase their home.

What sets you apart from other buyers – do you have something unique about your family?  Is there something that sets you apart from other buyers – get creative?

Is your Offer price in line with today’s market trends – last year’s pricing is just that.  Ask for “comps” and what is the percent of list price to sale price on sold properties?  Look past pricing, are their interior upgrades, landscaped yards, unique features that add to the cost of the home?

I can help you understand the market trends with our website and welcome the opportunity to help you win your home!
