Black Friday basically begins on Thursday these days.
You’ve probably driven past a big box store on the way home from Thanksgiving dinner and seen people with tents set up, waiting in line for the store to open.
They all want to be first into the store, or at least one of the first…because the deals are first-come, first-serve.
You want the latest, greatest, must-have item, or the best deal? You better not linger at Thanksgiving dinner, and get yourself in line.
It takes a ton of forethought, desire, and dedication to even have a shot at getting one of the deals.
It’s kind of the same with the best real estate listings. But not just one day a year…all year.
When a great deal pops on the market, or a house many people want, it’s like the frenzy of people streaming through the doors of a big box store on Black Friday. Buyers flock fast and furiously.
But, with a great real estate deal, or great house, the big difference is that only one buyer gets it.
Here’s the good news…
- You don’t have to be first in line to see the house. You don’t need to set up a tent on the owners lawn and wait to be the first one in to see the house. (In fact, that might hurt your cause more than help it!)
- Heck, you don’t even necessarily have to be the one who offers the most money for the house! (Although how much you offer does matter!)
- Crafting and presenting the best offer, when you’re trying to buy a house with lots of interest, is an artform that can get you a house even when there are higher offers. (I consider myself quite the artist when it comes to multiple offer scenarios…so you’re in good hands with me!)
I wish you luck on getting any deals you’ve got your eye on this Black Friday! But when it comes to getting the house you want, I won’t wish you luck…I’ll wish you work with me. That should do the trick! LOL
