While price may be the first thing in the purchase offer that sellers look at, it is not the only deciding factor they consider when accepting offers. In a competitive market, it is important to consider what would be the most appealing to the seller. Here are two important tips on how to make your offer stand out.
Listen to your Realtor
Listen to your Realtor because it is exactly the reason you hired them. They can be very proactive with the lender which helps establish confidence. This can be a phone call to brag about how quick you respond or how you’ve already given your documentation. This makes you that much more of a solid buyer.
Write a letter to the seller with your offer
Selling homes is an emotional decision too. Stories of why you are buying their property can sway some sellers. You can write that you love the house because your kids can walk to school from home, how their friends can easily come over, or your soccer league is here.
What other things can buyers do? If you have an opportunity where you cross paths with the seller, if the seller is there when you view a home, engage in a conversation. Be very pleasant, compliment their home and make sure they believe you will really love living there because you will be amazed how many sellers care about that.
