Given the demand for property, it is not uncommon for vendors to have multiple offers to consider. If you find yourself in this position, you need to evaluate your options. Naturally, many vendors believe the most significant offer is the most appealing option.
However, it may be the most substantial offer isn’t the best for your needs. On many occasions, the most extensive offer will be your best offer, but this isn’t always the case. If you want to know how to choose your ideal buyer, there is several things you need to consider.
Consider the terms of all offers when looking for your ideal buyer
There may be times when a smaller offer is more appealing. An example of this comes when you have a cash offer and an offer dependent on a mortgage. If the lease has only been agreed in principle, the cash offer may be far more attractive, even if it provides you with slightly less money. This would make the cash buyer your ideal buyer.
A mortgage agreed in principle isn’t a guaranteed mortgage, so it may not be on offer. Even if this mortgage does come to fruition, it may take several weeks for the lease to be made available. If you have a cash offer, you can proceed much more quickly, which appeals to many vendors.
If you need to move quickly or there is a deadline in place when it comes to selling your home, a cash deal makes more sense.
Is the buyer part of a chain?
Another thing to consider when evaluating offers is the status of the buyer. If the buyer is involved in a chain, this may hamper your ability to conclude the deal effectively. When people are involved in a property chain, there is a higher risk of deals collapsing, or at least being delayed.
If you receive an offer from a first-time buyer, their offer may be more appealing to you than a more substantial offer from a buyer involved in a chain. If you want to conclude quickly and reduce the level of stress you experience in selling your home, looking for a chain-free offer is a smart move.
Is the buyer motivated to move in?
If you are dealing with a motivated buyer, you should find the deal moves much more quickly. There is a great deal to be said for choosing an offer from a buyer who wants to conclude soon as opposed to someone who seems content to take things at a slower pace.
Don’t be afraid to speak with the prospective buyer and ask their opinion on the move, and what they want to achieve. This information may provide you with insight into whether this is the right buyer for you.
