This is so tough.
I have had an associate take over the negotiation process of one. How can you advice one to go up in price or change terms and void all knowledge of the other buyer's offer. Sometime you get lucky and one buyer just can't compete.

Once negotiations are complete, I resume all responsibility back for the buyer who has been awarded the home.

Good Luck,
Chris Gubb

Dear Theubriaco,

Hopefully you have had a new lease each year that your have lived in the apartment, however, the standard notice is 60 days. The lease also should indicate how long the tenant has to respond to the landlord's notice. We are seeing that landlord's are not preparing new leases both for short and long-term tenancy. However, it is a business transaction, and therefore should be treated as such. We are starting to educate the landlords that they need to treat rentals in a more business-like manner. Especially in today's market, rentals have increased and it is important for both the tenants and landlords to prepare new leases every year. Even if nothing changes over time, it's better to have a current lease than to have none at all.

I will be pleased to help you find a new rental or to help you in any way I can with your current real estate needs. Call me at 201-233-5278.

Professionally yours,

Broker Associate
