How Should You Handle Multiple Offer Scenarios in Clarksville?

Today we'll be discussing multiple offer situations and how you should handle them whether you're buying or selling. There are different strategies that you need to know for both situations.

When you're competing in a bidding war as a buyer, there are a few things you can do to make your offer stand out. Getting the highest price is a good idea, but there are other things that you can do. You can always offer to pay for more closing costs or shorten the closing period. These terms are also things that sellers like to see, and they could get you the home if you make the right offer.

One other thing you can do as a buyer is write a personal letter to the seller. This way, you become a face instead of a number, and you have much more emotional pull this way.

As a seller, cash is not always king when choosing from different offers. Look over the terms. Someone who is willing to pay for closing costs but offers less on the home itself may actually be a better deal than someone who won't pay closing costs but will pay more for the home. If you need to close quickly, then perhaps someone with a short closing period is your best bet.

Multiple offers can be overwhelming for buyers and sellers. If you're finding yourself in a situation where you need to make these kinds of decisions, please don't hesitate to contact me. I'm always here to help you!
