Steps to Make A Competitive Offer

1. Act Quickly.

If you have any interest in the home, don’t wait. Beat out your competition.


2. Increase Your Earnest Money Deposit.

The more deposit you include, the more serious you will seem to the seller.


3. Write a competitive offer that doesn’t ask for everything!

The more you ask a seller to do, the less serious you look.

4. Be Flexible with Contingencies.

Will the property appraise at the price you are offering? Do you really need an inspection? If the property is turn-key, chances are the seller has taken good care of it.

5. Hire a Professional.

An experienced real estate professional knows this market and knows what it takes to get you the home. Now is not the time to look for a deal. Hire a pro.
