Multiple Offers - Terms Can Be More Important


I have been working with a buyer to find their home.   Their financial limitation is in a very popular price range. So far, we have written 3 offers on 3 different homes.  Each time, we have been told by the seller’s agents that there are several offers in or coming in. Each time, our offer has been turned down.

At this time, there is a  shortage of inventory in New Port Richey, Port Richey and Hudson, FL., especially for decent looking and well-maintained homes in lower price ranges.  My buyer is getting discouraged and depressed. We need to find a home for the family with a new baby on the way in a month. She's flexible about the closing date but needs closing costs.


She has offered full price in each case: is it possible that someone who offers less can get acceptance? Yes, in certain circumstances. If their offer is based on cash or a less complicated loan. Most seller’s agents advise their sellers to bypass the FHA or VA offers if they have cash or conventional ones.  Or, if the seller needs a certain closing date, and one of the buyers is willing to extend to the date needed. Terms are just as important (sometimes more so) than price.


We are waiting for the next home to come on the market. Maybe then she'll be in the pink.

Hi Toni, it truly breaks my heart for buyers who are in that price range nor can they change the type of loan they're using. I'm working with two sets of buyers with similar challenges, they are frustrated but we keep pushing forward.

Beth Atalay That's what I told her this morning when we got the latest bad news. I know we will find something but it is frustrating.

This is good information for home buyers. It is important to understand the current market conditions.

Hi Toni.  I recently had a listing with 5 offers.  The seller didn't pick the highest one!  The highest one was a 0% down USDA loan with a closing date a month later.   The home vacant and the seller's focus was more on the timeline than absolute top dollar.

Toni,  It has been some very difficult times for buyers these days.  Escalation clauses are becoming the norm out here.  Never a dull moment.

Toni: There are a bunch of variables, as you know, that could sway sellers to one offer over another. I know your buyer is in very capable will find her a home.

I have been in that position with many buyers over the years and it is tough.  I have also been in that position with Sellers as well.

I too hate that for you buyers... once I heard of sellers having multiple offers and giving it to a "nice young couple just starting out" regardless of the offer... you never know sometimes

Toni, I wish you and your client all the best. Buyers are challenged in my market as well. Low inventory, multiple offers ... bidding wars.
