Multiple offersAsked regularly by several agents about how to help their clients structure their offer when faced with multiple offer situation. My thoughts in current market conditions (limited inventory available) to have strong earnest money, strong pre-approval letter, consider not asking the seller to pay closing costs in order to give the seller a better net on sale, & finally if your client wants to offer above list price - ask them early in the offer process, "what do you plan to do should the appraisal come in below your sales price?" They have three options with an appraisal contingency - ask the seller to reduce the sales price, pay the difference, or offer to split the difference with the seller. What else comes to mind with multiple offers for you and your clients?
