Writing a competitive home offer is more than just the price. Out of 11 competing offers, my buyer’s offer was the chosen one.
This was a case where the highest offer price didn’t win. Other buyers offered more money than my clients, but ours had an all-around stronger offer because of the offer terms.
What offer terms am I talking about? If you’re interested in learning more, check out my free Ultimate Home Buyer’s Guide: What You Can Expect from Start to Finish. I cover this in the “Crafting Your Offer” page.
Sometimes home buyers wonder if it’s even worth trying to compete against other buyers in a seller’s market. It’s not unusual for a seller to receive 20 offers when there’s very little inventory on the market.
It’s almost always a good idea to write an offer anyway. My dad used to joke about buying a lottery ticket because somebody will have the winning ticket. Likewise, somebody will be the winning offer. Why can’t that person be you? Writing a competitive home offer doesn’t have to be hard if you follow some tips to sweeten the pot.
Many times, the agent who’s the most organized and reliable, along with their clients who also appear organized and reliable, have their offer accepted simply because a seller or their agent trusts that the deal with be smooth and close on time. I’ve seen this pay off even if it isn’t as much money as they be offered from someone else in multiple offers.
When it comes time to make an offer, let’s make sure we put our best foot forward, even beyond the amount you’re offering. It can truly pay off in the end.
