So you have been diligently watching the new listings and picking out a few that may be ok to look at and maybe even work for your next home.Â By the time you have your very short list together you contact someone only to hear, let me verify they are still available....Â Now you are confused they just came on the market or back on the market a few hours ago how can that even be an issue already?
Now you hear back and the ones that are not fully under contract yet are in multiple offer status, now what does that mean for you?Â You have one shot at your offer and make it with as little emotion as possible.Â The offers will all be presented to the seller and here are the things from the offers that will matter to them:
1. Your offer price less any concessions you are asking for.
2. Your type of financing if any as the fees the seller is required to pay varies with each.
3. Do you have a home that has to sell first?
4. Date that you can possibly close the transaction.
When a seller goes through all of these items there are two things that will catch their attention, their bottom line actual net amount from your complete offer and of course the time you requested to tie up the property to closing escrow.
