Here are the ways we get our buyers’ offers accepted in this hot market.
Here’s a quick overview of the five ways we’re getting our buyers’ offers accepted in such a hot seller’s market:
Strong pre-approval or proof of funds. We like to have our buyers’ banker call the listing agent or seller and report how strong the buyers’ position is.
No contingencies on home inspections and appraisals. Our buyer will take it as is.
Pay over the asking price. And/or we’ll pay X amount over the appraised value.
Offer to pay seller’s closing costs. We also say we’ll take care of any unwanted belongings they want to leave in the home.
Strong earnest money and due diligence fee with a quick closing.
In truth, these are only five of the ten ways we’re getting our buyers’ offers accepted in this tough market. If you’d like to know about the other five, just give us a call or visit our website. We look forward to showing you how we are getting our buyers offers to stand out above the rest in a market where sellers are receiving 20, 30 or even 40 offers. Talk to you soon!
Right now, our market is hotter than a firecracker! Every listing we take is receiving multiple offers and buyers are outbidding themselves to get into homes. The challenge that we’re facing more and more, though, is that some of these homes aren’t appraising.
To get over that hurdle, we meet with our sellers to go over all their offers. They choose their top three to five offers, and then we go back to the buyer’s agent to get proof of funds to see if they have the extra cash to make up the difference between the agreed-upon price and what the home appraised for. That’s how we’re getting our sellers every penny that they’ve worked hard for and agreed to in the contract they signed with the buyer’s.
If you’d like to learn more about how we market our seller’s homes and how we get them multiple offers, don’t hesitate to reach out to me. I’d love the opportunity to interview for the job of selling your property. Call me for a no obligation consultation. Talk to you soon!

Here’s why I think this is the perfect market to buy or sell a home.
You may not want to wait until spring to sell your current home and/or buy a new one. For starters, mortgage interest rates are as low as they’ve ever been. We’ve had clients locking in rates of 2.5% for a 30-year fixed mortgage.
Another reason you don’t want to wait is that equity is growing right now; home prices are appreciating. The minimum wage is going up, and real estate is going to continue to cost more money. It’s a great asset to own a home as opposed to making your landlord rich.
If you’ve been thinking of buying or selling a home and you want to know your options with today’s prices and rates, don’t hesitate to reach out via phone or email. I would love to hear from you soon.
