15 Ways To Get Your Offer Accepted

When I write purchase offers for my clients, I encourage them to come in with highly competitive, fair pricing that is a win-win for everyone if accepted. But I also share with them these 15 strategies that will help get their purchase offers accepted, even if they aren’t offering the highest price:


1. Reply to counteroffers ASAP.

Time is of the essence for most sellers so it’s important to strike while the iron is hot if you want your offer accepted.  Submit a great offer as soon as possible when you know you want the home, and we’ll respond to any counteroffers the same day if possible. That momentum will keep the deal alive and give you the best chance of getting into escrow.


2.  Write a personal letter to the seller.

A real estate transaction is paperwork heavy, with legalese and big numbers flying around. But you can humanize your offer and appeal to the seller’s emotions by writing a polite personal letter explaining who you are, why you love their house, and revealing some details about your family.


3. Keep your contingency periods short.

Most real estate purchase contracts have a standard 17-day contingency removal period, during which the buyer can conduct his or her inspection, review disclosures and reports, get an appraisal, and request repairs. To sweeten the pot for a seller and show them that you are ultra-efficient and motivated, we can offer a shorter contingency period. You can still perform the same due diligence; just turn it around faster
