Is the first offer on your house worth accepting, or should you wait?

A common question I get asked is: “Should you take the first offer that you receive?” My answer is 90% yes, 10% no. Allow me to elaborate. 

The first offer you receive will be from your most motivated, excited, and enthusiastic buyer. Why is that? This is because they were the first to see the property and the first to send an offer. This first buyer really doesn’t want to lose.

Accept this first offer 90% of the time. How do you decipher which first offers fall into the 10% camp? You can do that with an agent’s help. By hiring the right agent, they can guide you toward the best decision for your situation.

Call me so I can help you through that process, and let me know if you have any questions. I look forward to speaking with you.
