Multiple Offers? Choose the Right One When Selling Your Home

It is not a rare occurrence for those selling homes to receive multiple offers in today's unique real estate market. This news is long-awaited for sellers who've heard horror stories about the devaluation of homes over the past several years. It may sound like a no-brainer- choose an offer and get a house sold but all offers are not equal. How can sellers benefit from multiple offers without getting flustered and wind up losing them all?

Choosing a great agent is especially important for sellers. These trained real estate professionals have the insight to help clients choose the offer with the best chance of closing. Selling a home can be an emotional time for many owners. Our agents provide years of experience and can give clients the inside scoop on what can work best for every situation. Having a knowledgeable third party can be advantageous to even the most experienced of home sellers, especially when offers come in that seem equally appealing for different reasons.

When the offers are in, your trusted agent can look through each one carefully and see which one most closely matches your immediate needs. Simple logic says to go with the highest offer on the table, but that is not always the best course of action. Some offers come with contingencies, some buyers don't have stable financing, while some offers may consist of all cash and want a quick closing. Your agent can field all kinds of questions about countering on multiple offers and other related topics. Selling a home is exciting, especially when your agent helps you select which offer could be the right move.
