#purchaseofferfail or who do I have to ____ to get an offer accepted around here?
Ugh. Of the two purchase offers written this weekend, the one for the house in Valley Glen is a definite no-go. Although we came in over the list price and no other offer was higher than ours or better on terms, the sellers chose one with a higher downpayment that was also willing to pony up more money if the property didn't appraise for the price. The sellers loved my buyers, but bla bla bla. I totally understand, but this is so disappointing, especially when we'd really stretched to get this. So what trick can I come up with next time to make sure my buyers get their desired properties? Is it too late for topless real estate?
