How To Get The Winning Bid
This is an article from https://www.forbes.com/ by Tara Mastroeni , that trys to answer the question What makes a winning offer. In today's real estate market in a lot of areas that sell quickly and you need to know how to write offers that get accepted. Let's look at what works and does not work in today's Real Estate Market
""If it is really a home you like, I would suggest making an offer that's as close to the list price as possible, if not above. Most desirable homes are getting multiple offers within the first week of being on the market, so offers below list price are not even being reviewed. Of course, you should only offer up to where you feel comfortable, but if you want to be competitive against multiple offers, make sure your offer is your highest and best.""
" I always encourage buyers to write a letter to the seller introducing them to who they are and why they're interested in the home. I suggest keeping it short and easily digestible – two paragraphs at most. The first paragraph can be about exactly how they felt when they first walked in to the property, and the second is about the buyer themselves, so that the seller can feel a strong emotional connection to them."
" Do whatever you can to eliminate risk from your offer. Often buyers want to add a laundry list of contingencies – like inspections or the sale of their current home – to the offer for their own benefit. However, the seller is trying to reduce all potential for a buyer to back out of an offer and accepting an offer multiple contingencies is a risk. I encourage my clients to do some homework and really prioritize their contingencies to include only the essentials."
" "Agreeing to buy the home "as is" essentially means that you are agreeing to purchase the home in its current condition and releasing the sellers from the responsibility of making any repairs. In this case, any inspections the buyer elects will be for informational purposes only, meaning that any repairs will be the buyer’s responsibility. This move is attractive from the sellers' point of view because it increases their net profit.""
