Multiple Offer Situations

Multiple offers normally happen when the seller is the Secretary of Veterans Affairs. VA wants all parties to know that there are other interested parties making bids on the property (usually bids come in very low). Well I was showing a house that the listing agent normally sells VA home. The listing agent told me she already had an offer on the house but she wasn’t presenting anything until Monday (this was Saturday).  So we submitted an offer a few hundred over the price. The agent came back Monday and said to submit the best and highest offer.

I just couldn’t believe that. I mean it wasn’t a VA house and we submitted a good offer with a quick closing. I just never in all my years dealt with anything like this from a regular seller.    The agent said her owner wanted to test the market because it only been on the market for 5 days. So my clients started thinking maybe the agent was trying to raise the price or might be working for the other buyers after speaking with their family members.
Needless to say we loss the bid, because we went the other direction with the bid a thousand dollars and better. My clients were suspicious of the entire deal.

How do other agents handle multiple offers?

Selling Your Home For The First Time

When selling your house for the first time it can be emotional. The home owner doesn’t really want to leave their home unless the price is right. The seller will need to be willing to do the following:

Ø  The owner has to consider the professional price opinion to put the house on the market

Ø  Reviewing the overall possible refund or equity that she/he can get  from the sell

Ø  Holding open houses and allowing strangers to view your home

Ø  Considering all offers that are presented and the feelings or thoughts of it being SOLD at the right price. Going back and forth to contract

Ø  Having an inspection completed and having to tackle possible issues can sometimes be emotional.

Ø  After the inspection the appraisal is going to be ordered. The seller and agent are both waiting on the appraisal to come back with no issues.

Ø  Hopefully after everything goes smoothly then the buyers can fund to close. Yeah!
