Be accurate and prompt
Accuracy and promptness of your offer is key here. Don’t think that willy-nilly will work. Every “i” must be dotted. Every “t” must be crossed. Every blank must be filled in accurately. Make sure all timelines are effective and in agreement with other timelines of the contract. Every needed addendum and disclosure must be presented. Understand, that you must adhere to all timelines too.
When inquiries are made that require your attention, you’ll want to get right on it and don’t delay. Don’t give the Sellers any reason to view you as being inattentive.
Be easy on inspection result demands
Even after you’ve won your home through the offer you presented to the home Seller, it’s no time during the home inspection to suddenly become a Buyer who says my way or the highway. By no means am I saying that you shouldn’t be concerned about the inspections results, however it’s not the time to nitpick about every little detail that may come up, as there always seems to be a lot of little things that come up during a home inspection. It’s best to try to work together with the Seller to come to a mutually agreeable arrangement for any needed repairs. Of course, if there are larger needed repairs, you can always reconsider you purchase if the Seller is being outrageous and not accommodating. Understand that the Seller could not agree to your repair requests if they knew there had been any other interested Buyers waiting in the wing. To summarize, just make sure that any repairs/adjustments that you request don’t get in the way of what you’re willing to accept to own the home. sell your house
Be your charming self
This should come easy for you right? We can all be charming. All kidding aside, if you simply tell a story about why the Seller’s home would be perfect for you it can likely pull at the Seller’s heartstrings. Tell them about you and/or your family, by all means spill your heart and soul to the Seller. Let them know why their home would be just perfect for you. Here’s a story, I’ll tell you, that worked well for one of my Seller’s:
A Buyer had viewed my Seller’s home and at the showing one of the children of the Buyer had left their doll behind. The Seller let me know and I advised the Buyer’s Agent. The Seller had received multiple offers on their home and even had one offer that was higher than the Buyer’s whose child had left the doll behind. The Sellers decided to accept the Buyer’s offer with the doll. They stated that they liked the fact that a young family would be buying their home as they had lived in the home all their lives while raising their children. An example of pulling at a Seller’s heartstrings. Does this mean that you should leave one of your children’s toys behind when viewing a home, hmmm, maybe, just maybe.
