How To Get Your Offer Accepted In Multiple Offer Situations When Buying A House

Here are 3 Tips For Getting Your Offer Accepted In A Low Inventory High Competition Environment

Our market right now is experiencing high demand and low supply of homes for sale.  For example the communities of Village Grande English Mill and Village Grande Little Mill in Egg Harbor Township, NJ currently have no homes for sale out of approximately 700 homes.  This means when a home comes available it’s likely going to have multiple offers.  Here are 3 tips for getting your offer accepted in a multiple offer competitive real estate market.

Tip 1:  Select The Right Agent

When you’re buying a home in a competitive environment choosing the right agent is critical.  An agent that is a skilled and experienced negotiator can ask the right questions to find out what’s important to the seller and help the buyer craft the best possible offer.  Choose and agent that has experience in successfully negotiating contracts in many different markets.  Having relationships with other agents in a local market can also help your agent get the best information and positing you well for negotiations.  This will allow you to present your offer and terms in the most favorable light.

Tip 2: Write A Love Letter

When sellers put their home on the market, they’re generally interested in two things: the price they get and the money they keep. But when they receive multiple offers from interested buyers, and the offers look similar, the deciding factor might be something completely different. It might come down to who they want living in “their” house. They might start to think about who they are leaving behind for their neighbors. 100_3706That’s why, when writing an offer for a home, buyers should add a “love letter” that tells about who they are and why they love the house, letting the owners know how they’ll fit in to the neighborhood. It can’t hurt and it just might help!

Tip 3:  Add A Personal Touch

I recently had a buyer client who was in a multiple offer situation.  I encouraged them to create a short video on their phone to introduce their family to the seller.  It worked!  Their offer was accepted and they are now enjoying their new home.  I also had a client give flowers to the seller in addition to the love letter.  That worked also!  Think creatively of how you can add a personal touch to your offer.  Your offer will stand out and you’ll help make a connection with the seller.

Do you have any other thoughts on how to get your offer accepted when buying a home?  Share in the comments or send me a message.

Best wishes, Matt

How will COVID 19 Affect Real Estate In South Jersey?

First of all we want to extend our sympathy to those who have been personally affected by the COVID 19 virus.  We also would like to express our support to those who have lost jobs at this difficult time.

As of today Governor Murphy announced that all non essential businesses should close and work from home.  At Keller Williams Realty we are honoring this request and have already made preparations to work remotely.  Our staff and leadership team will continue to work remotely from home.  Our affiliated title company is also prepared to work from home and handle closings remotely.

We anticipate our scheduled closings to close on time and are communicating with our clients on any potential delays.

For new seller clients we have initiated a Virtual Home Selling Service.  We will take new listings including video tours without having to come to our client’s home and without any buyers having to come in their house.  We have also implemented a virtual live open house strategy to further promote our listings on social media.

For our home buyer and seller clients we have implemented video conferencing for all meetings.  We also have a Virtual Home Buying Service to help our buyer clients navigate through potential homes and neighborhoods without having to leave the comfort and safety of their home.

Is now a good time to buy or sell real estate in South Jersey?  The answer is it depends on your circumstances.  We are offering phone or video consultations to help you determine if this is the right time for you.

We are committed to help our clients with their real estate needs and add value to their lives.  We pray that everyone would stay safe and well.

Richard, Matthew, Linda Haviland
