A 'Buyer' in Hand is Worth Two in the Bush

A ‘Buyer’ in Hand is Worth Two in the Bush | MyKCM

In today’s highly competitive seller’s market where there are more buyers than there are homes for them to buy, some sellers may feel like the ball is in their court.

And they would be right when it comes to choosing which offer to accept, the closing date, or even which improvements they are willing to make to their house prior to selling.

One thing to remember though, is that there is always a line that shouldn’t be crossed.

Interest rates can change, financing might not go through, the appraisal might not come back at the price that you have agreed to. These are all opportunities to work with your buyer to make sure that the sale still happens.

You may think that, because buyer demand is so high right now, you can...

4 Thornton Ct. Novato CA 94945: SOLD!

4 Thornton Ct. Novato CA 94945 has new owners!

Well, after several attempts at other properties, my client’s offer was accepted on 4 Thornton Ct. This property checked all the boxes and in my opinion, was the best property for my buyer. One level ranch with a pool and fantastic outdoor space for entertaining! Once again, I could get my clients offer accepted before the public open houses. Curious how that works…call me.

The market is hard in general to get into because of the lack of inventory. But the market for single level homes that appeal to downsizers is even harder. Why? Because the downsizers are competing with the first-time buyers and up-sizers. The sale to a downsizer can be tricky because they are used to a bigger house and may have to compromise, they are usually not in a...

51 Pinheiro Cr. Novato CA 9494: SOLD!

51 Pinheiro Cr. Novato CA 94945 has new owners!

I’m so happy for my first-time home buyers that just closed on their gorgeous Marin home. They were able to jump to the head of the line and get their winning offer accepted before any public open houses. This does not happen very often, but occasionally there is a seller that needs to get their home in escrow quickly in order to move forward on their replacement property. Luckily this was the case for us. My buyers acted quickly and met with their awesome lender and as a team, we were able to beat out the competition and get our offer accepted.

51 Pinheiro is a large home that my buyers can grow into as well as share now with family and friends. They love that...
