Here are a few tips to get your offer accepted in our low-inventory market.


When you work with us at Palmer Properties, we’ll give you an in-depth understanding of our current market so that you’re well-equipped to write the most competitive offer possible.

One thing you must understand is that you may lose out on a few homes before you get an offer accepted. That’s why it is more important than ever to focus on the terms of the offer. When you work with us, we’ll build rapport with the listing agent so that we can find out what our competition is like and what other favorable terms the seller is looking for.

Our secret weapon is to offer the seller a leaseback. That allows them to stay in the home a little longer in order for them to find their next home. I know you’re probably eager to settle into your new home, but this gesture goes a long way with sellers.

Another common tactic to make an offer stand out is to waive the appraisal contingency. We suggest that you put a little less money down so that you can use some of your cash reserves to bridge any gap should the appraisal come in below the purchase price.

We know that this is likely a stressful time for you as a buyer, but we want you to know that we’re committed to helping you get into your dream house. If you need help buying a home or you have any questions, reach out to us. We look forward to hearing from you.
