How a Southside Park Bungalow Went Pending So Fast

Real Estate Agent with Lyon Real Estate BRE #00697006

I worried a little bit when my seller said he planned to leave town and go to a place without cellphone or internet. He described the place of a friend who lives with a dead plant hanging over his kitchen sink for years. This would be bad to get a bunch of offers and not be able to call or email the seller.

Also, some of the buyers who appeared to be very interested were not putting pedal to the metal and signing an offer. They dragged their feet. Probably walking the neighborhood, talking to friends and family, trying to decide what to do.

While this was going on, of course, the buyer who did not hesitate wrote an offer and bought the house. You can see how this happened in my personal blog today at this link: How Long Did It Take to Sell a Southside Park Bungalow at 411 U Street?

Elizabeth, it is interesting to see the speed in which a buyer writes, and usually indicates their interest.   When I see multiple offers, I factor that in.

Joan Cox You bring up an interesting point about multiple offers. There are buyer agents who tell their buyers to wait until more offers are received before submitting their highest and best, but from experience, I can tell you the seller puts a lot of weight on that first, fast offer from a dedicated buyer who knows what she wants.

Elizabeth, I have found those buyers that truly are DYING to get the home will write right away, no  matter if all offers are being presented on Sunday.  That gives me (and the Seller) a positive feeling moving forward with their offer.
