In today's real estate FAQ's episode you'll learn tips for getting a lowball offer accepted! Let's begin with some basic how to buy a house questions that come up frequently. Nearly every buyer always asks, "can I offer less money for the house," when they are ready to write an offer. When buying a house, the list price and terms of the contract are negotiable. To weigh the odds of what is considered a lowball offer on a house, begin with understanding if the current market is a: sellers market, buyers market, or balanced market. Depending on the type of market will determine the likelihood of getting an offer accepted on a house, especially one quite a bit under list price. The next question that usually pops up is, "how much should I offer on a house below asking price?" That's a great question! Real estate lowball offer mistakes occur when a buyer first doesn't understand the current market conditions and trends. Working with a savvy buyer agent, when a home buyer gets ready to write an offer, the agent will double check value. If higher than reasonable then the offer should be less than asking price. If the list price and valuations check out, then it's matter of motivation on behalf of the seller and the market conditions. (i.e. are multiple bids occuring? how long has the house been on the market?) So, how to make lowball offers on a home successfully? First, understand the market conditions. (Yes, I'm driving this point home because it's critical to your success!) Next up, find the homes with the longest days on market that you like best. Next, schedule with your trusted real estate advisor to check them out asking your agent to "comp" the property before viewing the home. Ask your real estate agent if the home is overpriced, underpriced, or at the right list price. Chances are, if a home has a many days on the market over the average in your area, the price isn't right and the seller must come down if they hope to sell. So, what percentage is considered a lowball offer. If the home is priced correctly, anywhere from 3%- 5% under list will definitely be low. If the home is overpriced then anywhere from 7%- 10%+ will be considered a lowball offer. Here's the deal... In practice, me and my teammates have assisted home buyers get as much as 15% off the list price on occasion even in a seller's market. While it's certainly not the norm, every property, buyer, and seller thus negotiations are unique. To balance that fact, if a buyer wants to consistently be unreasonable by making lowball offers on correctly priced homes or underpriced homes and not listen to the prudent counsel or learn how to make a successful offer, then I will consider the buyer unmotivated to buy a house and simply fire the client. Please understand that when real estate agent's represent home buyers, we are looking out for your best interest and will assist you in getting the deal possible for the current market on both price and terms that help you get the home you want. Depending on your motivation to get the house, days on market, price, and market conditions, terms needed (i.e. buyer closing costs, home warranty, etc...) will determine the best way to make an offer on a house. Be realistic, be smart, and listen to your trusted real estate advisor whether you'll be able to get your lowball offer accepted or not. Sometimes it does work out.

https://MetroAtlantaHome.com - Important information on the initial offer process and negotiating terms of the sale. Working closely with your agent to evaluate all aspects of the offer to purchase a home is key. Your agent should determine the value of a home based on comparable properties, allowing for an understanding of the market in that area. Your offer may be met with a counter offer from the Seller and negotiations on all aspects of the sale may follow. Once ALL parties agree to ALL terms in writing, a contract is formed and contingency periods begin. Buyer’s Guide Episodes: 1. Getting Started - https://youtu.be/wjnioa8g8r4 2. Loan Pre-Approval - https://youtu.be/4AAPhevIYec 3. Searching Homes - https://youtu.be/yXZ8BICdQfs 4. Making An Offer - CURRENT 5. Getting To Closing - https://youtu.be/Gki6h7KxlBc Video Transcript: When it is time to make an offer, you should work closely with your real estate agent to determine an initial offer that is reasonable based on comparables in the area. Some buyers think they should simply offer a certain percentage below list price. Maybe they have done some research and found that homes are selling for 80% of their list price. Taking this approach could cost you because you are assuming the listing agent accurately priced the home a certain percentage above market value in the first place. You could be making an offer much higher than you should simply because the home was priced way too high to begin with. On the other hand, if the agent has the home priced fairly and at market value, your offer may be way too low and could offend the seller. In the meantime, a more reasonable offer could be accepted and you lose a chance at your perfect home. So how do you know what to offer? Have your real estate agent conduct a comparable market analysis to determine what the home should sell for. You can then use this information to make an offer. How much lower you offer usually depends on how badly you want the home and whether or not other buyers have their eyes on the home as well. When it comes time to write the offer, your agent will prepare all the necessary forms for you to sign. I suggest using an agent with access to the latest Georgia Association of REALTORs (GAR) forms. The Georgia Association of REALTORs has created forms that address nearly every situation that may arise in the real estate transaction. I have another video that addresses this topic specifically called, Why use a Realtor in 2012, check it out if you get a chance. Anyways, the primary forms you will be using for your offer include a agency agreement, if you haven't signed one already, the purchase and sale agreement, property disclosures, and financing contingencies to name a few. Ask your agent for sample copies of these forms in advance so you can get familiar with some of the standard verbiage. This way you can focus more on the specific terms of your offer when the time comes to make one. When making or negotiating an offer, you should consider all the terms of the agreement as a whole instead of focusing solely on the sale price. Incentives like closing costs, home warranties, surveys, termite letters, appliances, and upgrades paid for by the seller can add value to your side of the deal. Also, things such as the closing date, seller financing, and contingency periods can be negotiated to save you time and money. Typically, both sides will have to compromise on some things, but ultimately, both sides get what they want; a seller sells their house and a buyer buys a home. Remember, after a contract is agreed on, there could still be some negotiating going on down the road. Buyers typically have a due diligence period where they have the option to get the home inspected. If issues come up during the inspection, an additional round of negotiations may ensue. Another thing to keep in mind, if you the buyer are plan on getting a loan, the home must at least appraise for the contract price or more. If it doesn't, you will need to come out of pocket for the difference or have the seller lower their sale price for the sale to happen.

How to write offers: Are you ready to start writing offers? http://www.charter-home.com/home-owner-university-2/buying-a-home/writing-offers/ Well this is getting exciting. When you start writing offers it is a very exciting and stressful time when you are buying a home – especially if it’s not something you’ve done before. An offer is always in writing; you can’t purchase real estate with any kind of verbal agreement. What Is An Offer? An offer is essentially an entire contract filled out by the buyer with the price and the terms that are agreeable to what the buyer is after – what the buyer is willing to propose. But it is essentially an entire contract that, should the seller sign, would become the contract for the purchase of that home. So you’re going to fill out, in California – it’s about 10 pages, worth of paperwork that identifies and breaks down all the important details of the home purchase. This includes what the price is, what the down payment is, what the deposit might be, what kind of financing and who ends up paying what. In a separate module, we are going to cover the purchase contract and the breakdown of it. What To Expect The first time you write an offer can be a little bit stressful. In fact, in any new home search, even if you’ve been through a purchase before, you’re going through paperwork and it’s constantly being rewritten and evolved. You can pick up forms to write offers at office supply places. Contracts come in different shapes and size. But the contract most used in California has been written by the California Association of Realtors and it comes up in the vast majority of transactions. If you’re working with a realtor, this will be the document that you’ll most likely use for the purchase of the home. It’s called a Residential Purchase Agreement. The first time you run through it, you’re going to want to take the time to read the relevant portions of it. But most important – that we’ll cover here – are going to be ~Identifying the property ~What the price is that you’re willing to pay ~How much is your deposit (meaning the amount you’re going to put into escrow) that should you breach the contract could become non-refundable ~How much is your down payment ~What kind of financing ~And -perhaps most important after that – would be the split of fees and costs. For example, who’s going to pay for the title insurance, who’s going to pay for the escrow, and all of those specific details get itemized and defined so there’s no guesswork. It’s a very well used document, it’s very thorough and complete. The first time through it – you really want to read it. What Happens Next In many markets in California, you might find that you’ll write several offers. Subsequent offers are actually really easy. Once you’ve taken the time to familiarize yourself with the document – to write a second offer is a breeze. It’s that first offer, where you do want to take the time to get up to speed on what’s in there. But the most important components you will probably determine include how you want to approach a negotiation, how much money you want to offer relative to an asking price, and how you want fees/costs split. Once you have decided, once you have those patterns in place, when you write offers – you’ll likely just continue on that path. Unless you’re not having any success – then you might want to reassess perhaps how costs get split. If there’s something about your approach that is not getting you a property – you can reassess. But when you’re writing an offer you’re going to identify in detail through the contract everything – so that all a seller would need to do is sign and you are in contract on the purchase of that home. So familiarizing yourself with how the contract reads and the questions that are going to be asked is a good idea.

VIDEO TRANSCRIPT: Reporter: Let's say I have found the perfect property. I am now ready to make that commitment. What are some of the things that I need to ask before I make that commitment? Simon Bray: You're looking for the property, and you finally find the one that you really like. At that stage, you're going to make an offer to purchase, which is really a binding contract between yo, and the seller, provided the seller accepts it. So it can be a particularly difficult process, if you haven't done it before, to understand exactly what needs to go into that contract but really you have to know that you want the house. So is it in the location that you're happy with? Close to schools, the neighbourhood and the community that you enjoy. Sometimes it's worth having rented in that neighbourhood before so you know exactly what you're getting into. Is the house the type of house you want? The space and all of that, and I think most importantly can you afford it, because as soon as you sign that offer to purchase it starts a whole process in motion. And if you can't afford it, well you've wasted your own time and that of the seller. Reporter: Okay, now let's say I've cleared my mind of any doubt, I'm a 100% sure this is the property I want to purchase, what do I do? Simon Bray: The best thing to do at that point is to engage with a professional, so an estate agent or an attorney, to draw up a contract for you which is called an offer to purchase. Basically, it records your offer, the price you're going to pay and the terms and conditions that you're happy to accept in a sale. And then it'll get submitted to the seller, and if the seller likes what he sees then he's going to sign it, and you're going to have a binding sale agreement. So it really is just a contracting phase between two parties, and it's important to understand what goes into that contract, what are the various clauses that you need to look out for and that's where an estate agent agent or an attorney can really add value. Reporter: And is there anything specific a buyer should be aware of, or at least look out for, before making that offer to purchase? Simon Bray: Absolutely. A suspensive condition is basically if this condition isn't met well then the sale doesn't go through. So there's usually a number of suspensive conditions inside of sale agreements or offer to purchase, and there are things like you have to get a bond within 30 days, or perhaps I've got to sell my house before I can buy this house. So those would be suspensive conditions, and it's good to look out for those. Another one people often miss is this concept of the Voetstoots clause. There's this misunderstanding in the market that because of the Consumer Protection Act, there's no such thing as the Voetstoots clause. But in an individual property transaction, say you're selling a house to me, that clause absolutely can go into a sale agreement which means you're selling the house to me as it stands. So I need to be aware of any defects and be happy to sort them out if they do present themselves down the line. So that's a good one to look out for. Provided you don't know about any major problem that you haven't told me about, because that would be fraudulent, right? Reporter: Simon what happens in the event that you've bought the house but people are still occupying it? Simon Bray: The transfer process usually takes about 12 weeks in this country. So specifying exactly when you're going to move in has to be in that Offer to Purchase. So it usually records a date of occupation, and if, as you say, the person continues to live in the place after that date of occupation, then you'd also specify occupational rent. So that's how much rent they would effectively pay you to live in that place. It's usually quite high, it usually has to cover all the costs of ownership for the property. So you do need to look out for those ownership clauses, like the occupational rent clause. Reporter: And what are some of those things you should not do after you've done your OTP? Simon Bray: One thing that's really interesting is people will sign multiple offers to purchase. You've seen two or three houses, you've put in two or three different offers, and then you look to get the cheapest one. But the problem is if all of those sellers sign those offers, you've actually just bought three properties. So you don't want to do that. You don't want to sign an offer that you can't get finance for, so you need to know what your affordability level is. And you can't just rely on what people call the "cooling off period". There's a little clause that goes in the contract that says, "If I change my mind in the next five days, then I'm allowed to." That cooling off clause actually really only applies to property below a certain value, usually really low, like R250,000. And those directly marketed. So you don't really want to rely on that clause.

Making an offer on a house isn't incredibly complicated, but it takes some skill. Whether you are a real-estate agent or investor, I'm going to teach you how to make an offer and how to lessen the likelihood that you end up over paying for a house. You need to research what has sold in the past 6 month Dig up properties thru Zillow, MLS, and/or the tax record and see: What did the property sell for? How long did it take to sell? What amenities did it have? What were the terms? Cash, conventional, seller financing How long was it under contract for? Did it come back on the market? The biggest mistake I see people make is not properly comparing properties. Many times people want compare a junker to a nicely remodeled home (vice versa) 2. With what you have researched, come up with the price and terms you plan on offering. Formulating an offer is an art and takes practice, but it boils down to these two things: How much demand is there for the property? What market are you in? What are the circumstances for the sale? An offer in a totally raging hot market, beautiful kitchen, under priced: Offer over list Don't ask for buyer expenses Don't ask for a warranty Don't try to negotiate any personal items An offer in a bad market, with a house that needs work, and is over priced: Offer below ask Ask for expenses paid Ask for a home warranty Negotiate on inspection 3. Make the offer via email, verbally, or fax it (Preferably email) Many people over complicate this part, but just submit the offer and don't say anything. 4. Negotiate (if they counter) This is when you typically get into more in-depth negotiations: Work to understand the other party Set a limit that you will not go over Sometimes property will go into a multiple offer situation, in which case just make the highest and best offer you plan on making Don't stain relationships by being offensive or negative Provide documents that justify your price. Set a limit on the offer and DON'T let people shop you (wait out for other offers) 5. Second Round Negotiations & Repairs So in real-estate you typically have second rounds of negotiations where you negotiate what the inspector finds: If there are very small issues such as a leak under the sink, usually it's very difficult to get seller to repair If there are CATASTROPHIC issues found such a mold, foundation issues, electrical issues, etc expect concessions 6. Once all negotiations are done and everybody signs, YOU HAVE AN OFFICIAL CONTRACT. Low ball offer Tips: You can't low ball people that have multiple offers on the property. If you low ball you should offer "as-is" condition and not try to negotiate down the home price Make the contract quick and painless. Don't ask for anything else. In general negotiations: Don't be agressive and realize that a real-estate negotiation is a long process. Set limits on what you will pay and don't go over Be realistic

http://www.HampdenCountyHomes.com Hi Don Thompson, your local real estate expert advisor, back again to talk about making an offer. So to quickly recap, you’ve gotten pre approved for financing, you searched for your next home, you found and now you want to make an offer. Consulting with your broker advisor, you will want to develop a basic strategy. This will include the price you’re willing to pay, how much of a deposit or earnest money you want to put down, is there any personal property you want included, what repairs do you want to be made to the property, what other contingencies, like inspections, mortgage, closing cost credits, do you want to include and finally when do you want to close. You can see it’s not just making a low offer and seeing of the seller will accept. This is where an experienced broker advisor can be of immense help. In the end the lowest price may not be the best deal for you if you’re not able to negotiate any of the other terms. So where do we begin. I know most people like to go right to price but let’s talk about some of the other terms first. How much of a deposit do you want to put down? This is the money that the listing broker holds for the seller to take the house off the market. Contract law say it has to be “consideration” so it can be a lot or a little. The seller’s perception is however, the more you put down the more serious you are. What personal property would you like to include, stoves, refrigerators, washer and dryers, lawnmowers etc are all personal property to ask for if you want. If you or your broker advisor were to notice that there is, what I like to call a physical deficiency, that you would like fixed and if the seller wouldn’t fix you don’t want to buy then you should ask for it in the offer and not wait for the inspector to tell you it should be repaired because the seller does not have to fix it just because the inspector said… That leads us to the inspection contingency giving you the right to do inspections and allowing you to back out of the deal and get your deposit back if you are unhappy with any results of the inspection. Just to say, The seller is not obligated to do any repairs unless you have negotiated them as part of the offer, Your right is to back out. On a practical note we may try to negotiate more repairs. There are a lot of inspections to consider, structural/mechanical, termite, radon, lead, asbestos. Some may be more important to you than others. If you’re getting financing, there’s a mortgage contingency. You’ve been pre-approved, but you will need to make a formal application including the property which must be approved as well. I will talk about this process in another video. But if for some reason you could not get a mortgage you could back out and get your deposit back. The conditions for all this are explained in this paragraph. Then you can ask for anything else that you want to happen, closing cost credit and any other condition you want to be met. You decide on an appropriate closing date and then.. Determine a price that you want to offer. And you can be as aggressive as you like. Now, an Aggressive offer can be a little or a lot lower than asking price, but it can also be higher than the asking price. especially, if the property is priced right, in good condition and will be in high demand. This is where your broker advisor should be able to assist you. Ultimately, who sets the price that a house sells for? If you answered the seller you’re half right, the buyer’ that’s the other half. It takes the seller and the buyer to come to a meeting of the minds to determine the sales price. Depending on the situation, you may go back and forth with your negotiations until that meeting of the minds is reached. In some cases, however, because of competition for the property you may be asked to give your highest and best offer in which case you may not be able to get another chance and you’ll just have to give it your best shot. So Let’s say we’ve got a deal...now what That will be the topic of my next video, so look for that next email. If you have any specific questions you want to ask me, cal or text me at 413.221.9981 or respond to this email and I will get back to you right away. Thanks and have a great day.

When your new to real estate investing, the thought of making an offer and filling out the paperwork and writing a contract can seem daunting. n this video, I’m going to show you the least you need to know to making an offer on your first investment property. ALL-IN-ONE HOUSE FLIPPING SOFTWARE http://GetFlipster.com So let’s breakdown the 5 things to include and consider when making an offer to buy investment property 1. Price The first is pretty obvious and that’s the price you’re offering. Now keep in mind, price is not the only thing a seller considers when deciding to accept your offer as you’ll lean in a minute. 2. Terms The second thing you offer should include is what we call the terms or payment method. There are 3 different methods for payment. First is “cash.” We call this an “all-cash offer. The technical definition of all-cash is that the funds are liquid like sitting in a checking account or under the mattress but what it really means is that the offer is not subject to bank financing. So that means hard money and private money, which are 2 forms of investment capital can also be considered cash when making offers. Now you may want to let the seller know that you’re using hard money to fund the purchase but I typically don’t. The second method of payment is traditional bank financing. Now this form of payment means that your offer is subject to bank approval meaning that you’ve just created a contingency or a way to legally not perform on the contract. If you don’t get the bank financing approval, then you don’t have to buy the property. This can be seen as a negative to the seller. The 3rd type of payment is what we call “creative financing” which are alternative ways to control the real estate without cashing out the seller. On this video we’re not going to go into all the details but this includes strategies such as seller financing, land contracts, subject-to, options, lease-options, and so on. 3. Consideration The next thing your offer needs to address is what’s called “consideration or good faith or more commonly know as an earnest money deposit. This is an specified amount of money that is held in escrow to show your good faith to buy the property. If you don’t perform on the terms of the contract and all of the contingencies have been removed (I’ll talk about contingencies in a minute), then the seller gets to keep your EMD. Now to learn how NOT to pay an EMD deposit when making offers on deals then watch this deal and to learn how to not pay an EMD when wholesaling houses, watch this video as well. So how much should you pay for EM? There is no rule, it’s whatever you and the seller agree to but typically $500-$1000 is acceptable. 4. Contingencies The 4th thing you offer should include is any contingencies. The 2 biggest contingencies are financing, which we discussed already and an inspection contingency. This means that you as the buyer have a window of time to make sure the condition of the property is satisfactory. If during the inspection time, you discover issues with the property, you can either ask for concessions from the seller or back out of the contract and get your EMD released. Typically inspection contingencies can be anywhere from 3-10 days. Keep in mind, when buying investment properties, it’s important to let the seller know that you are buying the property “as-is”. That means you’re not going to come back and ask for concessions to replace the carpet or paint. The inspection should be for big ticket items like maybe structural or the roof or things like that. There could be other inspections like termite, pool, etc. 5. Closing Date Number 5 is the closing, meaning what date you are agreeing to close on the sale of the property. Typical closing are 30 days but can happen anywhere from 24 hours or past 30 days but you want to make sure you spell that out in your contract. Like I said earlier, if you don’t close on the agreed date and any and all contingencies have been removed, you could forfeit your EMD. -------------------------- Jerry Norton is the nation's leading expert on flipping houses and has taught thousands of people how to live their dream lifestyle through real estate.

What happens if you fall in love with a house out of your price range? Well, you could walk away or make a low-ball bid, but how do you make a low-ball offer on a house? A low-ball offer is described in many ways. First, it's usually more than 10 percent below the asking price of the house. Second, sellers usually find them insulting, so listing agents often have to plead with their clients to respond to the offer and engage the buyer. However, this can depend on how desperate the seller is. Third, low-ball offers can have a decidedly negative impact on the negotiation process. If you're making a low-ball offer, you need to know how much homes have sold for in the neighborhood. You should ask your agent to help you find out how much foreclosed properties, short sale properties and properties that have been on the market for a long time sell for in the neighborhood. Once you've assessed the sales price of homes in these three categories, and you've found a house you want to buy, you and your agent can start to compare the prices of the "comps" with your property of choice. You can then decide how much the property should sell for and construct an offer. If you decide to make a low-ball offer, you have to prove your bid is worthy. For example, if you offer $80,000 for a home priced at $100,000, you have to show "comps" on other neighborhood homes that recently sold for $75,000 to get the seller to bite. However, if you offer $50,000 on a $100,000 home, the seller has every right to offended. Sometimes low-bid offers work and sometimes they don't. But when they do, you'll get a property for an exceptional price. Looking for more of my real estate and personal finance tips?

When making your offer to purchase on a bank owned property, it's a good idea to use the purchase and sales contract from the realtor. By using your states purchase and sales agreement, you know that it has everything in it to comply with your states laws. Plus you can lean on your real estate agent for help in filling it out and then they can submit it to the bank. That's what they are there for and they would be more than happy to help. One advantage of using me as your funding partner is that you can make all cash offers. People and especially banks love to see all cash offers. However, in some cases they want hard proof or bank statements backing up the cash offer. So you may have to change your offer from all cash to pre-approved. By doing this, the bank will not want to see the cash in your account. By going this route they may ask for a lower earnest money deposit too. Contingencies are one of those things you have to be very careful about. Too many contingencies can cause you to lose a deal. Some of these contingencies might include subject to financing, partners approval, inspections, etc. With earnest money on banks, typically they want $100 - $500 earnest money. Some realtors may tell you other wise. Here's a little secret... if you are making multiple offers, this can be a lot of money you have shell out. Well instead make it so your earnest money is due within 48 hours of acceptance. This way you only have to deposit money if the offer is accepted. The addendum will be specific to the lender and your state. Usually it contains important information about the sale of the property. Every property you buy from the bank will have an addendum so get familiar with it. If you don't understand it, ask the agent to help you. As far as being assignable, the answer is NO! This is one of the main differences between buying from a bank vs. buying from a private seller. Banks don't do assignments because they want to deal direct with the buyer and know that they will close on the property. Proof of funds is important these days. If you are one of my students, then you have access to my proof of funds and transactional funding. Banks are now on to bogus proof of funds letters so it's important to have someone you can trust to back you up on all your deals.

For more articles & videos: http://www.tylerharman.com Welcome to the Real Estate Black Book - Buyer Edition. Today we're going to talk about the Multiple Offer Process. Now, you're probably thinking, obviously it's the person who has the highest price that gets the house, right? … Not true. I've beaten higher prices and I’ve beaten all cash offers. Here’s the first point: Your agent can either GET the deal for you, or can KILL the deal for you. I've seen both sides. When I’m a listing agent, I get buyer’s agents who call and start arguing with me in the first few minutes! Think about it... If they're already arguing with me, just imagine how messy this gets once we open escrow! Happens more than you think, by the way. On the other hand, Sellers also have to watch out for buyers agents who agree to anything just to get the house... It's really funny how fast they change their tune at the first sign of trouble. A few leaky sinks and they’re ready to back out of the deal completely. It’s crazy. So, what can YOU do as a buyer to get the house? First, you need to be working with ONE agent. There are a million reasons for this, but let’s just cover a few today. Some buyers think writing an offer with the listing agent is going to get them the deal. I call these buyers “Listing Agent Groupies”. But if these agents as ethical like they should be with multiple offers, they don’t represent both sides during negotiations. They'll usually bring in another agent to help negotiate for the buyer. So if the listing agent refers you to another guy, not only are you NOT getting the “inside deal”, but you have no idea how many other buyers that agent is representing. He could be writing offers for 2-3 other buyers on that same house. But if you DO happen get the deal with through the listing agent directly, odds are that not only were you the highest offer, but you were probably MUCH higher :-) That's because the listing agent's allegiance is to his seller. Not you. You need your agent to sell YOU as a person as much as he sells your offer: "I've been working with Ricky for 3 months, he's got his head on straight, very reasonable, written a few offers, but this is the home he really wants." And then follow up like crazy to keep your offer front and center. Second, Besides having a loyal agent, you need a rock star lender… Most decent agents send a "Pre-Approval Letter" with the offer, but usually never elaborate on it and talk about the strong points. Know what I do? I usually have my lenders personally call the listing agent. Good agents will appreciate this for one big reason… The only thing more important than getting the highest price possible, is finding the buyer that will ACTUALLY close. When Sellers are reviewing offers, it can be super stressful to look at a bunch of random names and prices and try to figure out who’s Solid and who’s not. If your lender is a rock star, and you ADVERTISE that fact, your offer is as good as cash. I've had my lender make such a good impression on the Seller one time, they actually used him to get their loan on their NEXT house! Last thing... After buyers send in their offers, one of two things will happen: The sellers will either accept one and open escrow… or they’ll send back a "multiple counter offer". Most buyers assume they’ll get a counter offer, so they just throw a number to get their foot in the door... I like to use the multiple counter offer as a listing agent because you never know who is going to step up. Sometimes it's the “little engine that could” that ends up coming WAY up and beats everybody. You just never know! Other listing agents don’t do that. They have a hard of enough time answering their phone on the weekend, so sending back multiple counter offers is way too much work! For that reason, it's not a guarantee. More and more, I'm seeing Sellers pick the best offer during the first round... Like I said, it’s not always about price. This means you need to come in STRONG... right out of the gate. Get that price up, shorten those contingencies, and get noticed. But There’s only one way to do this… and that's to write with CONFIDENCE. This means you better know the neighborhood, where the prices are headed, and know the comps... Notice I said KNOW the comps, not ask your agent about them. Have you been inside any of the comps to really understand the prices? If you haven’t seen them or are at least familiar with them, it’s like comparing two bowls of spaghetti just by looking at pictures. Doesn’t work that way. I could talk for hours on this subject, but this is just to get you thinking. So to recap #1. You need a good agent to make the right first impression for you and keep you front and center. #2. Have a Rock Star lender in your corner to back you up. And #3. Write STRONG offers up front by coming in with total confidence.

Tyler Wood from Coldwell Banker in Big Bear Lake, CA discusses real estate disclosures and the home buying process. Many buyers make an offer on properties before even looking at the sellers disclosures, only to find out later that there are some things they don't like about the property. Save yourself the hassle, review the seller's disclosures prior to making your offer. That are lots of important details in the seller's disclosures that will ultimately affect your decision to buy.

Buying a home can be a complex project that involves many people and many tasks, and one of those tasks to understand is how to make an offer on a house. We’re going to be talking the pricing component of the offer in this segment, which involves the offer price and what I call the net contract price. ________________________________________________________________ I'm a full-time Realtor in Charleston, SC. I grew up in West Ashley, and entered the eye opening experience of the U.S. Marine Corps, which was the beginning of my being away from the Holy City for quite a few years, but I’m back to the lowcountry I love. I have two adult sons who live in Seattle, which is where my wife and I moved here from. I always said I wouldn’t own a Chihuahua, and I now own a Chihuahua who has me wrapped around her little paw.
