Asked by Christy, Dayton, OH • Fri Jul 30, 2010
I'm relatively new to being an agent, and yesterday we submitted an offer on a house that was above asking price. We knew they already had an open offer on the house at asking price, so we submitted one slightly above. The listing agent notified me that they are countering the other offer. I'm curious as to what the strategy is here. I asked if it was a better offer, and he said it was the same terms (except ours was 1,000 more). I'm confused and wondering if I should have done something different in my strategy. I just assumed that they would run with the better offer, even if they did counter, instead of countering the lower one.
