How are you handling your multiple offers?

Carefully, very carefully. As a listing agent, I immediately respond to agents acknowledging receipt of their offer, letting them know it is a multiple offer situation and informing them as to when they can expect to receive a response.

When representing a buyer, it is obviously a different story. I always try to key into what is important to the seller and, if possible, try to tailor my offer to suit their needs.. I also make it a point to keep the lines of communication going. It amazes me the number of agents who send out offers and never make any follow up calls or emails.

Here in Greater Boston, we are seeing a lot of "all offers due by" date. When reviewing with the seller you can accept the best one right away if one stands out from the rest or you can select the best offers and go back with a request for the best and final offer.

Usually I discuss a time with my client when we will no longer accept any more offers. All the offers that have been turned in by that time will be discussed and one will be accepted. We then pick the next best offer and ask the buyers agent if they'd like to put in a back offer on the property, should the first fall through.
