Banging Down The Door To Home Ownership: How Buyers Are Winning Offers In Today’s Hot Market

We are seeing it all in this early 2021 Portland market.  While the following is not a recommendation on how to present an offer, and every listing is different from the last (different property, seller needs, and level of competition), we are seeing buyers give it their all.
Here’s what we see and hear buyers doing to beat out their competition:
  • Going high on price
  • Writing an appraisal bridge for price difference
  • Offering free rent-back up to 60 days
  • Providing a big earnest money deposit
  • Releasing earnest money either upon mutual acceptance or after the inspection contingency is waived
  • Taking the property in “as-is” condition, seller to do no repairs
  • Writing letters to the sellers
  • Offering to deal with any personal property the seller doesn’t want to take with them after closing
