How today’s buyers can strengthen their offers in bidding wars.

In this final video of our three-part series on how to compete in a bidding war, we’ll discuss the secondary offer terms. If you haven’t, I highly recommend you watch part one and part two of this series so that this information is more effective.

How does a buyer strengthen the terms of their offer when competing in a bidding war? There are two major factors to consider when breaking down the strength of a buyer’s offer: the price and the terms. There are many variables to account for in real estate transactions, including emotion, so you will never be able to predict everything. However, the goal in every bidding war is knowing you wouldn’t have risked any more than you did.
