Debe Maxwell "Sellers, why NOT seek that back-up Offer?  If it takes 3-4 weeks, so be it!  If your first buyer has lending issues, which include faulty appraisals, you have a second ready, willing and able buyer in line to move right into the buyer position."

Right on target - and - re-blog!

STOP!  Please Stop 'Selling' My House!

Please don't stop selling my house!How often have you heard those words come out of a Seller's mouth?!  I can honestly say that I've never heard a seller utter those words!

 

Many agents will 'call you off' for scheduled showings immediately following their sellers going under Contract with a buyer.  I always ask if the seller minds if we do show so we can bring a back-up Offer if my folks love the property.  Believe it or not, we're turned down about 90% of the time!

 

*Do I want to know that the property already has a negotiated Contract?  Yes, of course but, do your sellers a favor and KEEP SHOWING!

 

I recently had a dozen Offers on one of my listings and even had a bidding war on the BACK-UP Offer!  We have no provisions for a second back-up but, I did, very nicely, tell the remaining agents that we would love to be able to contact them if both deals fell through.  

 

Definitely seek that back-up Contract!I passed along Offers to these sellers, who continued to allow showings for weeks, well beyond their Pending date.  Why, you may ask?  Because, according to recent local stats, 35% of FIRST deals fall through!  Without a back-up Offer, the 'newness' of a just-listed property wanes when it has to go back on the market a second time. Rest assured, your chances of getting as outstanding an Offer as the first one, is fairly slim!

 

From a buyers' perspective, why NOT submit a back-up Offer?  It doesn't cost anything AND it saves a second bidding war and mad rush to compete as well.  

 

Sellers, why NOT seek that back-up Offer?  If it takes 3-4 weeks, so be it!  If your first buyer has lending issues, which include faulty appraisals, you have a second ready, willing and able buyer in line to move right into the buyer position.
