When considering which of two or more competing offers to accept for your home, there is no doubt price plays a huge role. After all, if Offer #1 is $10,000 higher than Offer #2, that’s an enticing difference that puts thousands of extra dollars in your pocket, correct? 


However, price isn’t the only thing you should think about when comparing multiple offers. There are other factors you need to consider as well.


For example, what conditions are in the offer? If Offer #1 is conditional upon the buyer selling his current property for a specific amount, then what if that doesn’t happen? You could end up with an offer that dies and be forced to list your home all over again.


In that circumstance, accepting the lower offer may be your best move.


There’s also financing to consider. Most buyers will attach a certificate from their mortgage lender to show that they can afford the home and will likely secure financing with little difficulty. If you get an offer where the ability of the buyer to get financing is in doubt, that’s a red flag.


The closing date is another important factor. Offer #1 might propose a closing date that’s perfect for you, while Offer #2 is four weeks later. If you’ve already purchased another home, you might require a month of bridge financing if you accept Offer #2. There’s nothing wrong with that per se, but the costs and additional hassle are factors you should consider.


In another case, you could receive another offer, with NO SUBJECTS, and $100,000 bank draft in hand. Even if it was $10,000 LESS than the other lowest offer, this may also be considered, especially if the dates are bang on for facilitate the dates on your other, already purchased property.  


As you can see, assessing competing offers isn’t as easy as it looks. Fortunately, as your REALTOR®, I will guide you toward making the right decision. Give me a shout or message me anytime. All the best,



Chris.

How a Home Inspection Helps You
Whether you're considering buying a particular home, selling your current
property – or both – a home inspection can help.
A home inspection is an inspection by a qualified professional who takes a
close look at every aspect of a home – structure, wiring, plumbing, and
more – and identifies issues you may not have noticed yourself.
For example, a home inspection can reveal that a furnace will need to be
replaced soon, or that there is a water leak into the basement that needs to
be fixed.
You'll definitely want to get a professional home inspection before you buy a
particular property. That's why most offers to purchase a home are
conditional upon passing a home inspection. (The last thing you want is to
buy your dream home only to discover that the wiring needs to be updated!)
You may also want to get a home inspection on your own home before you
list it for sale. A certificate from a qualified professional that states that your
home passed inspection will make your property more attractive to buyers.
Many reputable home inspectors are members of a professional industry
association.
