Home buyer’s biggest concern these days is…

According to a recent study affordability is still the number one concern for buyers. In a close second place, competition is also a top concern.

To win, athletes study the competition to come up with a plan and buying a home is not different.

  1. Ask what terms are important to the seller before you write the offer.
  2. Once you decide to make an offer, do it as fast as you can, hopefully, to be the only one the seller is considering.
  3. Make a good (or possibly, your best) offer in the beginning; you may never get a chance at improving it. In highly competitive situations, offer above the list price.
  4. Attach your pre-approval letter from a respected lender. This means you’ll need to get pre-approved before you even think about writing an offer.
  5. Include a higher than normal amount of earnest money to show you are serious.
  6. Eliminate unnecessary contingencies.
  7. Write a personal, hand-written letter telling the seller what you like about their home and why you want it. Consider including pictures of your family.
  8. Minimize seller expenses paid for the benefit of the buyer.
  9. Shorten inspection times.
  10. Don’t ask for personal property.
  11. Be flexible on closing dates to accommodate the seller’s move.

Once you find your dream home, don’t take a chance on losing it. Write a winning offer that will be good for both the sellers and the buyers.
