What’s the difference between a cash offer and a financed offer? There is no black-and-white answer. We judge each offer by its own merit, and the bottom line is that once a transaction closes escrow, the seller gets their money regardless of how it got there. There are many more details inside each offer that we have to review and explain because certain terms in a cash offer can make it less desirable than a financed offer (e.g., contingencies or timelines, etc.).
Cash offers get the benefit of the doubt in this market, where we’re seeing multiple-offer situations and prices being bid upward. This brings up the possibility that a home might not appraise for its purchase price, but with a cash offer sellers don’t have to worry about that because there i ...

How to Win a Home in This Competitive Market

Here are three ways to become a stronger buyer in this competitive market.

If you find yourself in a multiple-offer situation for a home you love, here are some steps you need to take to make sure you're the one that ends up with the home:

1. Offer more than the list price. In a strong seller’s market like this, you may need to go all in all at once. Your agent will run a CMA to further analyze the home and what you should offer. A very attractive offer is a winning offer in this market. 

2. Get pre-approved. A seller will not reject a fully qualified buyer to accept a higher offer from an unqualified one. Getting pre-approved also lets you know what your price point is to stay within your budget.

A very attractive offer is a winning offer.
3. Waive any unnecessary contingencies. Proceed with caution. While waiving contingencies ca ...

When you’re interviewing agents for your next real estate transaction, what questions should you be asking? Here are three important questions to ask in order to ensure the agent you pick is the best one for the job:
1. “How long have you lived in the area?” This gives you an idea of their knowledge of the local area, what there is to do, and where is the best fit for you given your goals.
2. “Do you have a comprehensive vendor list?” An agent with a comprehensive vendor list is likely limiting their list to those they feel confident referring. It makes a great resource for you during and long after your purchase.
3. “Do you have a successful support staff?” A successful agent will often be in the field, showing homes, meeting appraisers, and attending h ...

When preparing your home for the market, what’s the effect that you’re trying to accomplish? If you’ve ever been inside the model home of a new subdivision, you likely noted the beautiful furniture, decorations, and perhaps even some soft background music. What they’re trying to do is evoke emotion and prompt a buyer to start dreaming. That’s exactly what we want to do with your home—make it easy and exciting for a buyer to imagine themselves living there. The more buyers we can excite, the more money you’ll get for your home. So, how do we do that?

First things first, declutter. The old adage of “less is more” really does apply here. We need to get as much of “you” out of the home as possible so that ...
