It’s time to write a winning offer contract that will win property in the Bay Area’s competitive real estate market.

 

Being first in terms and time matters. Instead of getting frustrated by losing offer after offer, I help focus on writing contracts instead of offers. We need to present an offer they can’t refuse. The hard truth is that many sellers have high expectations and are expecting all cash offers that closed 2 weeks ago!

 

So what’s a buyer to do? I will help you come as close to that as possible. This involves really understanding what the sellers want. To understand and investigate the bigger picture we can create an offer to match or close. Yes, many times it’s just the price the seller is after. But there are just as many times where the sellers care about who’s buying their home. Sometimes offer terms will trump price. There is no exact right or wrong way to make an offer but it’s important that we make our offer the best one possible.
