When it Comes to Offers, it's Not Always about Price

When considering which of two or more competing offers to accept for your home, there is no doubt price will play a huge role. After all, if Offer #1 is $10,000 higher than Offer #2, that’s an enticing difference that puts thousands of extra dollars in your pocket. However, price isn’t the only thing you should think about when comparing multiple offers. There are other factors you need to consider too.

There is a sense of family, but no specific family… the feeling of personality, but no specific person. The professionals who set up a model home make it anonymous for a reason.
