If you are ever in a hot housing market, when everyone seems to be in a buying frenzy, expect to be in a multiple offer situation.  Of course, if you are a first time home buyer, and new to the home buying process, this process can undoubtedly be even more frustrating, worrisome and nerve-racking . To compete or not to compete?  How will I survive? Will I survive?  What should I do?

 

As a first time home buyer, making an offer to purchase a property is nerve wracking enough without being in a multiple bid situation. But, if you are seriously thinking about placing an offer, here are a few tips that could help you.


1. it is good to know just how many people are going to place an offer on the property.  In some cases, there might be buyers who, for whatever reason, back out of the deal entirely even when they say they will write an offer. Though there might be discussion of multiple bids and offers, one doesn't really know for sure just how many people will be competing against your offer because all offers must be in writing. It could be the case for buyers, facing the same challenges, might want to opt out of writing a contract, for fear of loosing or competing with another buyer altogether.

2. Give your real estate agent the letter of commitment you have received from your financial institution. Adding this along with th contract of purchase and sale shows the seller that you are a serious buyer.


3. Be flexible on the seller's dates.  Find out what dates the sellers prefer and be as accommodating as possible to their dates instead of your own.

 

Good luck, I hope this helps!
