We often get panicked, last minute calls from a potential buyer that has been house hunting on their own.  They "knew" they would be using Bordeaux Smith Realty, but had not made official contact yet.  The panicked call goes something like this, "We just went to an open house and we LOVE the home and want to make an offer right now".  WHOA!!!!  While that is great, the buyer wasn't aware of the steps needed to make a strong and competitive offer.  Currently in the Triangle (NC), it is such a seller's market that the buyer needs to have all their ducks in a row.  If they don't, their dream home may be gone before they can get their ducks moving.
First thing's first, CALL US!!!  We will make sure you have everything you need to go in with a strong offer in a season where many homes fall under a multiple offer situation. 
Things we will ask:
Do you need a loan or will you be paying cash?
If you need a loan, have you spoken to a lender? If not, we can help with that.
Do you have money on hand for Due Diligence Fee, Earnest Money Deposit, Appraisal, Inspections, and closing costs?
When a seller has multiple offers, it is not all about the purchase price.  Can there be a rent back period offered to the seller? How high of a due diligence fee can the buyer afford to lose to make that part of the offer more attractive? 
If you think you would like to buy (or sell) a home and have been watching homes and see how fast they are going, contact us today so we can at least get your first duck in a row and help you with lining up your other ducks.
Don't get left out!
We would be honored to help you.
