Nightline is a news magazine show on ABC that I try to watch whenever I am up or not doing anything. Yesterday Active Rain's Valparaiso Indiana Real Estate Agents Jeff and Grace Safin of F.C Tucker Company in Valparaiso,Indiana were on the show.
On the show they shared a technique called "reverse offer",a move that helped them sell 50% of their homes they tried the method with in 2008. So what is a reverse offer? Here how it works.
Once a home has a second showing,the couple gathers as much feedback as possible from the buyer's agent and works with their client to come up with an offer to present to the buyer. Anything could potentially be on the table such as price,closing cost assistance,home warranty,moving time frame and appliances. It depends on what it might take to get the buyer. Reverse offer gives the home buyer the ball in their court.
In this real estate market,you have to be very creative in order to succeed and stand out from the fierce competition. Hopefully this technique will help realtors sell more of their houses and help stimulate the housing market.
Here are some more blogs written by Active Rain members on "Reverse offer"

And of course you can WATCH Jeff and Grace on ABC Nightline Show: Desperate Households. Don't even bother calling Jeff and Grace for advice on reverse offer. They are too famous now to have any time for little real estate agents bothering them-LOL. I am joking of course.
