The seller's agent wont say what the other offers are of course so my main questions here is if it is allowed to offer a cash incentive to either the seller or sellers agent if our offer is accepted over others to be submitted to the bank. If not is there any advice for anything we can do to make our offer more persuasive other than offering a higher amount on the house. Thanks.&nbsp;<br/><br/>P.S. Short sale price already approved.&nbsp;<br \><br \>9 replies Sat, 19 Apr 2014 04:21:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Can-I-offer-Cash-Bonus-to-Seller-if-they-accept-my-offer-over-others-on-short-sale/537097/ 2014-04-19T04:21:00Z How do I write a review for an agent? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-do-I-write-a-review-for-an-agent/429145/ 6 replies Wed, 18 Jan 2012 03:25:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-do-I-write-a-review-for-an-agent/429145/ 2012-01-18T03:25:00Z 337 s tiago dr in gilbert http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/337-s-tiago-dr-in-gilbert/537046/ INTERESTED IN THIS HOME AND WANT TO SEE MORE PHOTO'S OF IT<br \><br \>3 replies Fri, 18 Apr 2014 18:46:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/337-s-tiago-dr-in-gilbert/537046/ 2014-04-18T18:46:00Z Good credit fiance, bad credit fiance. http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Good-credit-fiance-bad-credit-fiance/536808/ My credit is about 570, her credit is 785.
