How to get a lender to accept your offer?

Asked by Janie, Alameda County, CA Tue Apr 7, 2009

My husband and I have been looking for a house for a while now and have not had luck with placing offers. The last situation we placed 5 offers 5 to 10 thousand dollars above asking price and have been outbid, denied and sometimes just ignored. How do we make our offer stand out to a lender? We are getting frustrated and desperate! Could someone shed some light on what lenders may want from us?
