Multiple Offer Madness

IMG_2229

If you have been looking for homes in the 250-400k price range on the West side of Denver, you have probably experienced the shock and awe of multiple buyers bombarding the same  home you are looking at.  Showings are stacked on top of each other, with a long line of buyers pushing past each other in the hallways of these homes.   I recently showed a home, and we were 1 of 100 showings in 2 days.

In almost every case in this price range, there are multiple offers.  I am not talking about just a couple offers, but in many cases 14 or more offers!  Alot of people think this is the best of times for the real estate agent, but this is actually not true at all.  The buyers we work with are often frustrated, discouraged, and tired from writing multiple offers on many different homes with little luck.  If our buyers are not happy, then we are not happy, period.  As a result we are working very hard to try to find ways for our buyers to win, and get the homes they want.

So how can you stand out in a market like this?  Is there a way to win the home if you are not the highest bidder?  We believe we have a formula that helps our buyers stand out, as well as compete if they are not the highest bidder.  We have won several homes this way.  Its important to look at all factors of the real estate transaction, and really ask what is important to the seller besides just the highest price.  Here are a few key things we focus on.

  1.  Having a good lender who communicates well on the buyers behalf:  We have lenders call and introduce themselves to the sellers agent, and talk up our buyers and their qualifications.
  2. Treating the sellers and their agent with respect:  We realize we will not get anywhere by being rude or demanding.  So we go out of our way to reach out to the agent, and ask them what they need for a successful transaction.
  3. Tell your story: We have found that when our buyers write a letter and tell a little bit about themselves and why they love the home, it can go a long way.
  4. Other dates and deadlines:  There are other deadlines, and contingencies that are important to a seller.  We ask about closing dates, appraisal deadlines, down payments, loan conditions, inspection deadlines etc.  Finding out what a seller needs in these areas can help a lot as well.
  5. Graciousness:  This market is tough on buyers and sellers.  We strive to be gracious whatever the outcome, and it is amazing how that comes back to us sometimes.

If we can help you in any way, or if you want to just talk through the market, we would love to have a conversation.  You can reach me at 720-891-5751, or check us out at http://www.foxgroupgolden.com

Heritage Dells

Heritage Dells is a great neighborhood in Golden that was built in the late 1970’s early 1980’s.  It is popular with families and outdoor enthusiasts because of its proximity to downtown Golden (3 miles) and the Apex Open Space Park with hiking and mountain biking trails right next to the subdivision.

Its parks and trails  and access to Shelton Elementary make this an ideal family location.  Prices vary from the high 500’s to the mid 600’s for most homes in this subdivision.  There are Tri Level and 2 Story homes scattered throughout the neighborhood.   Many of these homes have great mountain views as well.  I have several friends in this neighborhood and have sold several houses here.   My friends absolutely love this neighborhood and its access to so many great things.  The Colorado Mills Shopping Mall and lots of great restaurants are literally a couple miles away, along easy access to all the main highways leading to Denver and the mountains including Highway 6, Highway 470, and Highway 70.  The W line light rail is within a mile as well.
