Multi Bid Home Offer Success Has Consequences at

Home Inspection


Home sellers are thrilled when their home for sale gets multiple offers.  The choice to choose and feel that there is a strong chance to move forward with the home sale.  However, I always wonder when buyers' real estate agents, home inspection in ri real estateafter home inspection, submits a huge laundry list of repairs they want completed for the buyers.  It was multi bid right?  There are other buyers waiting in the wings to step in if this sale goes south in RI real estate.


Does the buyers' agent let the buyers know that to ask for many maintenance items on the home inspection could make this sale go sour?   Sellers see red when they get this list for sure.  So as a real estate agent for the buyers in this situation how do you advise your clients properly?

Ginny, when we saw multiple offers this past spring/summer, sellers stood strong on no laundry lists, as the next buyer would step in quickly.

Hi Ginny- you make an excellent point, and it's good for buyers' agents to make their clients aware of this.

Ginny I am not a Realtor, but if I was and my Buyer had the winning offer in a multi bid situation, I would advise them to think very carefully what repairs to ask for.  Just because they won the bid does not mean that the Seller will not get ticked off,  walk away, and end up going with one of the other bids.

Par of that would depend on how the home was priced to start,  If it was priced  for conditions then that agent should have spent a lot of time explaining that to their client

Hi Ginny.  If something was a surprise it is understandable.  All else was known.

I hope the buyers will realize that the sellers do not have to agree to do anything that is not required. Sellers can accept another offer if this falls through.

It depends on the contract used by the buyer's agent.  If It was a sold "As Is" contract, the buyer got stuck, unless the buyer cancel contract accordingly.
