6 Reasons The Highest Offer Didn't Win

Even in this market, the highest offer doesn’t always win. ⁣

True story. ⁣

Sounds crazy, I know, but here are 6 reasons the highest offer doesn’t always wow the sellers and win the house.⁣

1. Buyers are inflexible on the selling timeline.⁣
2. Buyers aren’t pre-approved for a mortgage prior to making an offer.⁣
3. The highest offer has too many contingencies.⁣
4. Buyers ask for things sellers made clear weren’t for sale.⁣
5. Another offer is 100% cash with fewer contingencies.⁣
6. Buyers don’t seem personable. ⁣

Most of the time, the highest offer wins the house...but not always. In fact, sellers are free to choose whichever offer they want no ifs, ands, or buts. ⁣

Working with an agent who knows how to pick up on subtle clues from buyers AND sellers is your best bet for landing a house you love. Interested? Let’s connect. I’d love to help you find your next home.⁣
