You can buy or make your dream home. I can help.

Buying and listing  strategies to get you home. 

Want to win a bidding war?  Think like a seller. Reframing your offer from the seller’s perspective can help you understand what sellers value most.

This illustration shows how a listing agent will compare your offer to others.

Criteria a listing agent will use to compare your offer.  There is price, escalation, financing, inspections, earnest money and closing date.

In the greater Seattle area, the majority of winning offers waive financing, appraisal and inspections. They also have high earnest money (released immediately to the seller) and close quickly

To win a bidding war, think like a seller. Beyond price, what else would you value when selling your home? 

This is what it boils down to – most sellers value these three things most:
1. Price
2. Certainty
3. Speed  

Getting these three things right can move you from writing offers to finally winning a bidding war.
