For example, if you see the property that you like, do not wait till the open house try to schedule a private showing as soon as you can the this way you will have a competitive advantage over the other buyers who are waiting for the open house. With my buyers, who i’m working with we’re, trying to do the private showing but, more importantly, we’re doing the homework before we even go, we see the House we’re reviewing the comparables in the neighborhood and we’re reviewing the disclosures. This allows us as soon as we finish the showing to write an offer right at the property.
3. Getting Underwritten Approval
Tip number three getting underwritten approval, most buyers when they start shopping for a home. They obtaining just approve approval. If you are one of those buyers who are Thinking of looking for the home first and then going for pre-approval later, when you find the home that you like you’re, just not going to be able to make it because the house will be gone before you even Be able to obtain a pre-approved letter, so this is not even an option so there for most buyers what they’re doing they’re obtaining a pre-approval.
But i’m advising you to obtain an Underwritten approval to give you a competitive advantage over the buyers who have a pro approval. Under underwritten, approval does not require any payments, doesn’t cost you anything, there’s no more additional credit, post or whatsoever. You just have to provide additional paperwork for your lender.
The difference between the underwritten approval and the regular pro pro is that underwritten approval proves that under Reader underwriter shows already. You saw your file and gives you the conditions that you have to remove.

For some reason, a lot of people associate negotiations with only Determining the price on a house. However, negotiation includes so much more than just the price in real estate. We negotiate the terms on the contract.
We negotiate a lot of other hiccups that may arise during the escrow process. So if you work with a true professional, he will make this process for you As smooth as possible.
5. Make a Preemptive Offer
Tip number five, that is the last tip, but not the least important tip – make a preemptive offer Most homes in the bay area.
They have the deadline for offers, and my suggestion to you do not wait for those deadlines. Make a preemptive offer the fact that you’re making preemptive offer, even if it gets rejected, you can always go back to the seller and make another offer on the deadline. I had a lot of cases where my offers were accepted simply because we show up and we made a preemptive offer In a worst-case scenario.
If your offer is rejected, you has nothing to lose everything to gain, but even if it’s rejected and you coming back to the seller on the deadline for the offers, the seller knows that you won this house more than anybody else.
