Lately we’ve been working with a lot of buyers looking for homes in the Atlanta area. And with the large inventory of short sales and foreclosures on the market, we’re finding that these homes are selling fast!
No matter what side of town you’re looking, I encourage every buyer to make a clear and certain decision about the property they want to put an offer on. Once I submit a reasonable offer on my buyer’s behalf, then we put a time limit on the offer in order for the seller to respond. If the seller receives multiple offers in this market, it’s very common for them to call for the “highest and best” offer. In this case, I attempt to negotiate the sales price for my buyers but if they really want the property then this process can become very competitive. Negotiating the sales price and incentives for our buyers is our specialty and do everything we can to get buyers what they want.
If you’re currently on the market looking for a home then I highly encourage you to be ready to put an offer on a home you love. These homes are selling so fast and there are so many deals right now whether it’s a foreclosure, short sale, new construction, or previously owned home. What’s been your home buying experience?
