Special offer

Happy Dance!!

Real Estate Agent with The Homefinding Center

It's Friday!
And I have a confirmed appointment with Client A for tomorrow! We're going to see two houses that I hope he'll love! Hopefully I'll write an offer on both and he'll be able to choose between TWO accepted offers. Worst case, at least I have a confirmed appointment with him!!

I wrote an offer this week for a returning client of mine and we should have a response back from the bank early next week!

And my little boy turns 5 this weekend!

Hello Amanda....this works for me. I've been having the same kind of jubilation for the end of the week. Have a great weekend.

Stop the presses... Did I understand you correctly? You're working with a buyer and you hope to write multiple offers???!!!

@ Mike - read my blog... he's been hard to get to, and he is often referred to, endearingly, as Client A.  I will dance a happy dance again if I write him any kind of anything. 

Keep your fingers crossed!!

So if you write two offers and both are accepted, won't he be obligated to proceed with both of the offers?  I find that kind of dangerous to submit two at once.  Do you get escrow for both?

Good luck I hope you sell him something- or two!

I'm with Amy. I've never performed writing multiple offers for ANY client, no matter how difficult they are to reach. With all due respect, obligating a client to multiple properties seems reckless and perhaps a disservice. Is this standard practice in California?

Thank you both so much for your replies to my blog. Please note, this is simply a blog, and most assuredly I have my client's best interest at heart. Thank you very much for your replies!

Amanda, I do realize this is a blog, or at least it was the last time I checked. My comment(s) is/are not meant to reflect "criticism"; rather it/they is/are meant to express "concern". Please don't misinterpret the intent. Unless CA practice differs from TX or LA, (or FL based on Amy's response) having a client obligated to more than one property could be a nightmare. I may be wrong, but I don't think Listing Agents would be very supportive, nor would they likely encourage the practice.

I would really love to see this post as "Members Only".  Here in Ontario Canada we can write up as many conditional offers for one buyer as we like.  They are only obligated once all conditions have been met or waived.   I hope your Buyer co-operated and you have a sale!
