How to Deal with Competing Offers in Real Estate

You’re a homebuyer, and you find yourself in a situation where your agent tells you that the offer that you just submitted on a home is one of several offers that the seller is now considering.  Does your agent know how to win against competing offers so that you get the home you want?

Perhaps more often than one would think, you have two or three competing offers on a home. It’s the experienced agents who can win the majority of the time against competing offers. They know how to work the contract, they know how to work the agent on the other side, etc.

Does Real Estate Technology Matter for Buyers?

Lately, I’ve been exploring whether real estate technology tools really matter in the home buying process. My findings? Absolutely yes.

Do you have to go to third party sites to get information about the homes and listings you’re interested in? Does your realtor have excellent “techie tools”? Do they have an app for your smart phone to help you pull up listings around you in real time? Do they have recently sold homes in your area that you can access quickly?
