Getting Ready to Buy
With inventory diminishing daily and multiple offers being extremely common, it is of great importance that you position yourself to have the "Best Chance" to get your offer accepted. You enhance your chance of getting the home of your choice by doing the following:
  • Get pre-approved for the purchase:
    This takes very little time, is usually free, and is of great value. At this time, identify the price range for which you qualify and which fits your lifestyle.
  • Submit a strong competitive offer:
    Submit the offer as if there will be multiple offers submitted by multiple prospective buyers.
  • Include substantial earnest money deposit:
    Acceptance of an offer is sometimes determined by the amount of the deposit. A larger amount may signify a bigger commitment to the seller.
  • Minimize or eliminate contingencies:
    The fewer contingencies (such as predicated offers), the stronger the offer.
  • Make a buyer profile available:
    Time on the job, flexibility, reason for purchasing seller's home, etc.
  • Be prepared to preview a new property quickly:
    Homes sell sometimes in hours. Be prepared to make decisions quickly and be accessible to change the terms instantly.
