Sweeten the Deal!

Waiving one or more contingencies isn’t the only way a buyer can entice a seller to accept their offer over others in a competitive situation. Buyers offering to pay a portion of the seller’s closing costs and taxes, or releasing the earnest money deposit early could help. Offering the seller a flexible timeline or allowing them to rent back the property temporarily after closing could be attractive too. Another option, instead of waiving the inspection, would be to offer a shorter window for it to take place to speed up the buying process. Working with a local lender rather than a larger, national company, in order to get a better appraisal could also help.
