How to Get Your Clients' Offer Accepted in a Multiple-Offer Situation

When your clients are happy, all is well with the world youll get referrals and repeat business time and again. But how do you make sure theyre happier than everyone elses clients, especially when youre facing a multiple-offer situation during a home shortage?

Helping Your Clients Offer Stand Out

There are so many small concessions you can make that many people dont even think about and thats good news for you. Youll look like a rockstar when your clients are competing with other buyers for a listing and you have a toolkit of brilliant ideas to help them shine.

  1. Show the sellers that your buyers are qualified. Instead of an ordinary lender letter, have them get an actual loan pre-approval letter; that shows theyre stronger buyers.
  2. Have your clients submit a larger-than-normal earnest money deposit. Let them know that it shows the buyer theyre very serious and that its still a part of their down payment.
  3. Tell your buyers to write their best offer. If they truly want the home, they may not be able to hope for negotiations. Even though the highest offer doesnt always win, it cant hurt to come out swinging.
  4. Give the sellers what they need. Rather than taking possession of the home immediately after closing, can your buyers wait a few days so that the sellers have time to move? It seems like such a small thing, but it can make a huge difference if theyre trying to decide between multiple offers.
  5. Have your clients add a personal touch. While it may or may not make an impact, sending a hand-written note to the seller adds a human element to an ordinarily all-business transaction.
