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. That’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.

As a real estate agent I often get asked from buyers or sellers should I hire an attorney? In NJ having an attorney is not required. There is a difference in how closings are handled in North Jersey versus South Jersey. If you are in North Jersey it’s customary for an attorney to handle everything in the transaction including title search and handling the closing. If you’re in South Jersey title companies typically handle the closing and title work. Regardless of what part of NJ you are buying or selling a home, here is my list of 5 reasons you should consider hiring an attorney.
- Real estate agents can’t give legal advice. Real estate agents can go over the contingencies of a contract but they can’t give legal advice. Only an attorney can advise you on legal matter.
- Inspection Negotiations. Attorneys can help in negotiating acceptable inspection terms. Often a well drafted letter from an attorney can be more well received if it is coming from an attorney rather from an agent or home buyer or seller.
- Review of contract terms. Your real estate agent will most likely be using standard New Jersey Association of Realtors contract forms. These work well for most homes however every home and circumstance is unique. It’s wise to have an attorney review the terms of the contract during the three day attorney review period once the contracts are fully signed. During this time an attorney can cancel, or revise a contract on behalf of a home buyer or seller.
- Review of contract deadlines. Attorneys will also help keep track of important deadlines in a real estate transaction to help ensure your agent does not miss any important deadlines.
- Problems at the closing table. At the day of closing there can be problems. In my experience there are two common problems. The first is the seller not moving out all their personal items in time for closing and the second is repair issues. Sometimes a new repair issue is discovered at closing. For example the air conditioning is not working properly. An attorney can help successfully negotiate agreeable terms for the buyer and seller and make sure they are legally protected if such a problem would occur at closing.
We have worked fantastic attorneys. We would be happy to recommend one to you depending on your location and circumstances. Contact us and we’ll be happy to recommend an attorney for you.
