Hey everyone, today I am going to discuss multiple offers with you, as they have become more and more common in St. Louis as of late. 

In St. Louis, multiple offer situations have been occurring lately, but not in every market, or in every neighborhood for that matter. What's happening is the buyers are looking for move-in ready homes that are priced right, and they will pay a little more to be able to move right in.

From a buyer's perspective, how do you craft a winning offer? Often, it's not all about the price, it's about the terms. If you give the seller the terms they want, they are much more likely to choose your offer. 

For sellers, you've got to prepare your home to sell for top dollar if you expect to have multiple offers. That means staging, decluttering, and doing everything possible to widen the appeal of your home to the highest number of buyers. 




In this market, you need a trusted, experience professional to handle each side of the transaction. If you're in a multiple offer situation, it doesn't make sense to work with the seller's agent. You need someone to advocate on your behalf when you are dealing with multiple offers. 

If you have any questions for us, feel free to reach out to us via phone or email. We look forward to hearing from you!
