How I write a winning offer for my clients
Picture this: You've found your dream home, but so have others. How do you make sure your offer stands out?
Easy. That's where I come in, with a proven strategy to help you come out on top. Here’s what that looks like:
Writing a professional summary email – I start by crafting a one-page summary of your offer's key terms. This isn't just about making it easier for the listing agent; it's about showcasing our professionalism and attention to detail.
Understanding the seller's priorities – It’s surprising how many agents skip this step. A simple conversation with the listing agent can reveal what the sellers value most, allowing us to tailor your offer to their specific needs.
Flexible closing date – While others might propose 30 closings across the board, we aim for a closing that best meets the seller’s needs. Maybe they have a job transfer, another home to purchase or a significant life event coming up that will impact their preferred closing date. We make sure we know what the seller wants – sometimes that’s worth more than adding to the offer price. In other cases, the house is vacant and they want to be closed yesterday. By teaming up with the right mortgage lender, we can accelerate the process, boosting your offer's appeal without raising the price.
Remember, it's not just about how much you offer but how you offer it. If you're looking to make a move in the real estate market in 2024, let's chat about how we can make your offer one they can't refuse!
