It’s a tough market for buyers right now. Competition is fierce, as there’s incredibly high demand but very few homes available to go around. Many buyers are trying to find ways to make their offers stand out, such as by writing letters about why they need or want the home. However, there are better ways to make an offer that wins you the home of your dreams.
These are a few things that have worked well for our clients recently. In one case, we were able to find a home within the first 15 minutes of it being listed. This meant we could put in a strong offer early and negotiate terms before anyone else even knew it existed. We were under contract within a few hours, and we even beat offers that were thousands of dollars higher than ours.
In another situation, we were waiting for weeks to find a home that matched the buyer’s needs. We identified a home that looked like it was about to go on the market, so we got in touch with the seller before it was even listed. We negotiated a price and terms that were favorable for both the buyer and seller, and it also beat out the other offers.
"At the end of the day, winning a home in our market revolves around being proactive and ready to strike."
With so many buyers and so few homes available, we need to be aggressive in our approach. Buyers need to be proactive as well as quick; there’s simply no time to reflect on how much you want a home, go to multiple showings, and wait to write an offer. You need a Realtor who works hard to ensure you get your foot in the door early with a strong, unbeatable offer.
At the end of the day, winning a home in our market revolves around being proactive and ready to strike. If you’d like to learn about some of the strategies we use, or if you’re ready to find a home, feel free to reach out to us. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
