OKC Realtors: The Skinny On Clean Offers
When it comes to being OKC realtors, our team at Metro First really love to help our customers in any way we possibly can. When our team of OKC realtors has a customer simply wanting to invest, we’ll work to locate properties that are priced to sell quickly. In these cases, we will urge investors to move quickly and be prepared to submit an offer or risk losing the property to another investor.
Here are a few tips our OKC realtors will offer which may be helpful in getting the best deals:
1.) If possible purchase the house with a cash investment. This is attractive to sellers, because the buyer does not to worry about financing.
2.) Closing quickly is another way to make the offer strong; usually sellers want the property off of their hands as soon as possible.
3.) To show the seller you are a serious and committed buyer, it is recommended to put down more earnest money than customary. This sends a message that as the buyer you will not back out of the contract and risk forfeiting the earnest money.
4.) When submitting an attractive offer don’t ask for repairs, especially if the plan is to flip the property. Asking for repairs complicates the offer and can lengthen the closing time. If you know a costly repair needs to be done, you can consider that in the price offer.
In strictly investing situations, our OKC realtors believe it is important to set up clean offers. This means that the offer is one with few or no contingencies that could holdup or cause a sale to fail. With added contingencies a seller has a reason to say no. That’s just something to keep in mind as you begin looking to invest.
