Austin Real Estate – How to Make Your Offer Stand Out In A Competitive Buyers’ Market

Posted by Kent Redding on Monday, February 15th, 2016 at 2:11am

The Austin Real Estate market is showing no signs of slowing down and is only heating up with the weather as buyers are coming to “Silicon Hills”.

With more people from across the United States flocking to Austin Texas some may feel like they are at a disadvantage especially if they are competing with cash offers from buyers who have recently moved to Austin from California and other states.

In this post we will share with you several tips you can use to insure that your offer gets noticed if you plan on buying Austin Real Estate in the coming months.

#1 – Get To Know the Seller

Although the 2016 Austin Real Estate market may be tough for some buyers right now the reality is that it’s also tough for some sellers too especially if they have to sell their home before buying another one but, this means opportunity for you, especially if you take the time to get to know the seller and their personal situation.

By doing this you may find that the seller hasn’t found another Austin home yet and you can set your offer apart from the offers of other buyers if you are willing to rent the home back for a short period of time to the seller after you purchase it from them.

#2 – Write a Letter to the Seller

Before your Realtor® submits an offer to the seller you should consider writing a letter to the seller that will be submitted along with your offer. This strategy has been used successfully in competitive Real Estate markets across the United States like San Francisco in recent years because it adds a “face” to your offer and helps the seller to see you as a real person instead of someone who is just another buyer.

Before submitting an offer take a few moments to think about what you really like about the sellers home and then add those points to the letter because you want to connect with the seller on something that you love about their home since most sellers have an emotional attachment to their homes and want to know that the buyer will love their home just as much as they have.

#3 – Don’t Tell the Seller What You Dislike About Their Home

Last of all, but most important, when attending an open house don’t make your opinions known about the home, keep them to yourself, because you risk offending the seller especially if you don’t like their wallpaper, carpeting or decorating style that they’ve chosen for the home over the years.
