"I Can Explain It to You, I Can't Understand It for You"
Another day in the Bristow-Gainesville real estate market, another offer submitted for a buyer client to be piled on the mound of offers the seller will receive. Every buyer has to go through a learning curve when they enter the market, even buyers who have purchased in the past or in another market. The low inventory and intense buyer demand in the Bristow-Gainesville real estate market have made house hunting feel impossible. And even though their agent may understand exactly what the terms most likely to win over the stack of other offers, some buyers are simply risk averse.
There are buyers that hear strategy for writing offers and pick it up right away. And then there are buyers that hear strategies over and over and won't take a calculated risk. That's when the words of a fellow agent ring in my head, "I can explain it to you, I can't understand it for you."
Unfortunately, buyers who aren't willing to take some risk are likely to be house hunting a long time. If you aren't willing to take some risks, rest assured other buyers are, which leave the seller in a position to take as little risk as possible when they choose their winning offer. As a Top Real Estate Agent in Bristow and Gainesville, I know what other buyers are doing to win. How can you compete? Read more on my personal blog.
