Finding and buying the ideal property can be a dream come true. There is something special about walking up to the front door on moving day, sliding in your key, and entering the foyer of your beautiful new home.
However, investing in real estate can be a nightmare unless you have the right real estate agent working with you throughout the buying process.
As your real estate agent, I ensure that I will do two important things for you:
- Help you buy a home that matches your requirements.
- Make the process simple and easy.
Dealing with Competing Prices
Ideally, you want to be the only buyer who makes an offer on a particular property. That way, assuming your price is acceptable to the seller, you’re almost certain to close the deal.
But it doesn’t always work out that way. In the case of highly desirable homes, it’s very common for there to be competing for offers. So, what do you do if there’s a competing offer on a home you really want?
First, don’t panic. Just because there are other buyers interested in the property doesn’t mean you won’t get it. There are many factors that influence a seller’s decision to choose one offer over another.
- Sellers are generally skeptical of offers from buyers who do not have a pre-approved mortgage or have not yet put their own home on the market.
- Conditional offers based on these factors are often a red flag. Most sellers will readily accept an offer conditional on a satisfactory home inspection. However, if there are other more stringent conditions – such as an offer conditional on the buyer selling his own home for a particular price, or an offer conditional on arranging satisfactory financing – many sellers will be reluctant to accept the offer.
How I work with clients
To begin, I take the time to learn what you really want in a home. We look at your needs and desires and help you determine the price range within which you should shop. Then we show you properties that meet that criteria – including new listings the moment they come on the market.
As your agent, I look out for your best interests. For example, I provide you with in-depth property details of each home you view, point out desirable features you may not notice and identify potential concerns you may have overlooked. We have listings for homes, condominiums, and vacation properties if you are interested in investing offshore
I’m by your side every step of the way. When you find a home you want, I’ll prepare and present the offer, and negotiate skillfully on your behalf, so you get that property at the lowest price possible.
