Buyers: How to up your game in a competitive real estate market

June 23, 2015


Buyers may need to up their game in a competitive real estate market where the number of buyers outnumber the amount of homes for sale. Here are some ways buyers can make a stronger offer:

• Include larger earnest money to show you are serious.

• Include a pre-approval letter.

• Be flexible on your closing date and/or move in date. (This may really help the sellers  and make your offer more attractive to them.)

• Limit the amount of contingencies in your offer and other requests when in competition.

• Make your best offer first as there may not be another opportunity.

• React quickly! Be responsive and quick in your communications with your agent.


Best of luck to you in your home purchase!
