Under Contract in One Day..My Buyer Clients Won the Bidding War!

House Number 1- Offer presented, offer rejected. The seller selected another offer.

House Number 2- 3534 Foxchase Dr. Clermont FL 34711, day one of the listing, offer made $10,000 over asking, my buyer clients are now under contract and on their way to owning their Florida home. Congratulations to this sweet family!

Clermont FL real estate market is literally on fire. It is not unusual to arrive at a listing to be greeted with multiple potential buyers waiting in line to get in to preview the home. Such was the case with myself and my buyer clients on Saturday. Unfortunately, their offer was not accepted. Little that they knew, there was a home they would have liked better about to hit the market. 3534 Foxchase Dr. came on the market Sunday morning, I made an appointment to show it for that afternoon followed by an offer over $10,000 asking price. Yes, there were multiple offers on the home the day it came on the market. My buyers wrote an emotional letter to the sellers that literally had me in tears. I’ve known this family for a while and everything in that letter was the absolute truth. Their hard work, patience, and working toward owning their Florida home paid off.

3534 Foxchase Dr checks off pretty much everything on their list except the pool. The good thing is, there’s a community pool within a walking distance of their future home. I had the pleasure of

Here’s my advice to all the home buyers;

-Be ready to make an offer before you start looking at homes. If you are a cash buyer, obtain a letter from your bank showing you have the funds. If you are financing, be sure to get pre-approved and have the letter ready from your lender.
-Work with an agent that you can trust. Someone who knows the market and will go above your expectations. Someone who will work hard to find your home. In a hot, sellers’ market, we can not afford to be absent.
-Be patient! If you’re looking to buy a home in a market where there’s more demand than there are available homes, chances are, you will find yourself in a multiple offer situation. Think like a seller, present an offer they can not reject.
-Do not get frustrated, you may have to put in a few offers to get one accepted but it will happen.

If you are a home buyer in the Clermont, Minneola, Groveland, Mascotte, Winter Garden areas, I would love the opportunity to speak with you. Call or text me at 407-929-1852, email bethatalay@gmail.com or visit www.WhereToLiveInOrlando.com

Hello Beth - congratulations on helping your buyer clients achieve success.  It's not easy to be a buyer in today's competitive real estate market.  And it's not a piece of cake for sellers either.

Hi Michael Jacobs, recently, in a transaction where I represented the sellers, we received eleven offers on the first day, I didn't even have a chance to advertise it. It was very difficult for the sellers to select the right one(for them). We're in a tough market.

Congratulations on the pending contract, Beth. So difficult these days. I've sold listings where the buyers' agents were telling me their clients had lost out on anywhere from five to nine houses before getting their offer accepted.

Congratulations to you and your buyers Beth! It's tough to find out when an offer was not accepted and the house is going to be somebody else's new home. But, more often than not, the house the buyer ends up buying turns out to be the better choice, or better deal, or both! 

P.S. This home is gorgeous!

That is a great-looking home, congrats to your buyer clients!  Only having to pay $10K over asking price is actually pretty good in this market, haha.
