Contrary to popular belief, it’s not all about the highest price. Just because you have the highest price does not mean your offer will get accepted. What’s more important are the conditions in the offer and your negotiation standpoints. Which is why it’s crucial to work with a knowledgeable Realtor so you’re not stuck loosing out on the home you really wanted.
Secondly, always have your pre-approval from your bank or mortgage broker ready, it’s good to have your pre-approval attached to the offer to ensure the seller that you have no problem financing the home.
Third, make sure that your Realtor is presenting your offer directly to the seller and the seller’s agent. If they’re not doing that, it’s a disservice to you because other offers could be changed or modified after they’ve seen yours.
I hope these tips help and you’re able to get into the home you really want. As always, working with a Realtor is FREE if you’re a buyer, so contact me if you have any other questions regarding the home buying process.
