In continuum to my previous post on how in today’s market, buyers should be ready to compete, I wanted to stress again to all the home buyers out there that the highest and best offer is not usually the seller’s strategy when it’s not a short sale or foreclosure transaction. I’ve seen buyers, debating and going back and forth between themselves on whether they should put an offer on a house they loved; they weren’t mentally ready and as a result they missed the opportunity to get the house they loved. Because they were hesitant, even though they put on great offer, they were late! The seller already accepted another offer and this is just a missed opportunity.
I totally understand that buying a house is a big commitment, it’s probably the largest purchase you’ll ever make and it’s an emotional and stressful process. BUT, you should trust your gut and your real estate agent, especially if they have shown you again and again that they care about you and the transaction.
It’s a tough market out there now, so be ready to make an offer. Want to discus your real estate needs over coffee? Contact me now!
