Good afternoon EJ,
Look at he responses. These responses are from professionals that complete transactions every month. It looks like the issue is fraught with issues.
The market has changed in the last 90 days. A Buyer cannot squeeze every Seller till they scream. Try to squeeze the Seller and they go to the next Buyer. Your excuse of loosing to cash Buyers is just an excuse derived from lack of knowledge.
A Buyer MUST BE AS STRONG AS POSSIBLE in this market. Forget the line from your agent that "I will get the Seller to pay ...........................
A Buyer that wants a property needs to BE AS STRONG AS POSSIBLE.
Provide more earnest deposit than the Seller wants, make the earnest money not refundable, be sure to have an APPROVAL LETTER from your lender. A pre-approval letter will not make it in this market. Offers with pre-approval letters become "B" and "C" offers to be rejected by a Seller.
If your Lender cannot give you an approval letter, call me for a referral to a lender that APPROVES Buyers before the offer is made.
Did your Agent present the offer to the Seller or just send it along by fax? When the Buyer's Agent does that, who is representing the Buyer in front of the Seller? The Buyer's Agent should be presenting the offer to the Seller as that is what they are being paid to do. The Buyer's Agent should be representing the Buyer. If your Agent is not meeting the Seller personally, go to another Agent and get representation!
My team is always looking for agents that want to increase their closings. My team supplies free apps, website, lock boxes, signs, and more to help the agent be productive. We train agents to close transactions with approved Buyers that we provide, such as yourself.
I use many additional concepts to make the Buyer STRONG. Call me for assistance and let's get you into your new home before the new year.
