When a home is priced well it can sell quickly and sometimes have multiple offers. That is why it’s important to have the tools to compete with other buyers.
First, learn about new listings early. If you are aware of the new listings immediately, you can move quickly to make an offer and possibly get a deal. You could check third-party websites daily and still not get the most accurate information about new listings. Or, you can enroll in my exclusive “Preferred Buyer Program” where I’ll set you up with daily email notifications directly from the MLS at no charge.
Second, get pre-approved and have evidence of cash funds. This will give you an advantage over other buyers when a bargain comes on to the market. Sellers usually take offers from someone with a proven ability to purchase. A pre-approval letter and verification of cash funds gives the seller the confidence they need to select you as the right buyer.
Lastly, hire a respected professional. It is no secret that a respected broker with a good reputation will give you an advantage when submitting an offer.
