Q.  I want to buy a home but the ones I look at keep selling before I can put in an offer.  What can I do to make an offer before other buyers? 


A.   When a home is priced well it can go on and off the market very quickly.  That is why it’s important to have the tools to compete with other buyers.


First, learn about new listings first.  If you are aware of the new listings immediately, you can move quickly to make an offer and get a great bargain.  You could check third-party websites daily and still not get the most accurate information about new listings.  Or, you can enroll in my exclusive “Preferred Buyer Program” where I’ll set you up with daily email notifications directly from the official MLS at no charge.


Second, get pre-approved.  This will give you an advantage over other buyers when a bargain comes on to the market.  Sellers usually take offers from someone with a proven ability to purchase more seriously.  You may get an offer in later than another buyer but the seller may go with your offer if it’s more likely to close.
