There is no greater compliment than having a repeat buyer or seller. I’d love having repeat clients because I know that they’ve trusted be enough to do the job once, they know I will do an exceptional job the next time. From real estate investments, first-time homebuyers, to repeat buyers, having someone come back to you for the same job, means that they were satisfied before, and they know I will get the job done this time.
“I have done several real estate transactions with Dale and would highly recommend him for any Bay Area transaction. He is very knowledgeable, professional, energetic and responsive- and he is also very fun to work with! Dale assisted us tremendously with putting our offer together and were so thrilled the the seller picked ours out of the multiple offers they received.” ~ Zillow Review
The goal of any homebuyer is to find the home they want, the terms that they want on the offer, and at the price that works for them. This is why putting together a tight offer is so crucial when appealing to homeowners and sellers. The old standby “handwritten letter” to appeal to a seller may not work anymore. I recently had a seller that has seven offers in a week, six of which had a personal letter attached to the offer. Even though the offers were all very competitive, my seller actually went with the offer that did not have a personal letter. It was too stressful and too emotional, so she decided to look at the terms rather than the emotional side.
You never know what’s going to appeal to a seller so it’s important to put together a solid offer, not just a simple offer with a sob story letter to go along with it. Not all sellers are moved by those letters. It really comes down to the right terms and the right price. Of course, any buyer can offer over asking price but the home has to appraise for this inflated prices well. And listing agents know that even though the offer may look great with a high price if the home will not appraise for that higher price, there’s no point to entertain the offer. The only way that listing agents would accept an overpriced offer is if the buyer has the funds to make up the difference. If they are paying cash, a higher priced offer may be ideal. But, if buyers are financing the property, a higher priced offer simply won’t cut it.
This is why all these factors make up an amazing offer and this is what has prompted this repeat buyer to contact me every time they need to buy a house throughout Alameda County or Contra Costa.
