How to Deal With a Multiple Offer Situation, Red Wing, Minnesota

Hunting for a home is an exciting process, from hiring a real estate agent to touring listings. However, once you find your dream home, it can be stressful to make an offer only to find that you’re in competition with other potential buyers. Below is a comprehensive guide that can help you take the necessary steps to ensure your offer stands out among the rest.

How a Seller Deals With Multiple Offers

When multiple offers are put on a home, this is known as a bidding war. The home seller can deal with this scenario in several ways. One is to inform the buyers of the multiple bids and ask them to respond with their highest offer and best terms.

What You Can Do to Make Your Offer More Attractive

Getting mortgage preapproval from a lender is one of the best ways to improve your offer. This shows home sellers that you are a serious buyer and that you won’t be denied for a loan. Other tips include submitting a large deposit, offering to pay the closing costs, and selling your existing home before buying a home to prevent your property from being a contingency that would force you to withdraw from the sale.
