Make Your Offer More Attractive to Sellers

Here’s how you can make your offer more attractive to sellers.


If you’re a homebuyer, you’re probably wondering if you should buy a house now or wait for the market to slow down. It’s still a great time to buy a home, so today I’ll share a few tips to help make your offer stand out in this crazy market:

1. Submit a large earnest money deposit. Paying a large earnest money deposit shows the seller that you’re serious about buying the house and are willing to give extra money for your offer to win.

2. Show the seller that you’re qualified. Work with a lender to get a pre-approval letter to show that you’ve done most of the required paperwork, and you’ll be ready to go.

3. Give the seller time to move. It won’t cost you any more money to let the seller stay in the home for a few days after you close, but this tactic will give you an edge in multiple-offer situations.

4. Write your best offer. Your agent can help you write the best offer for your situation.

If you have any questions about buying or selling a home in this market, don’t hesitate to call or email me. I’ll be happy to help.
