Inventory is low in Harrisburg right now, so our home sellers are seeing lots of offers coming in on their homes. Buyers have to put their best foot forward in this situation because they’ll be battling other buyers for the home, and they need their offer to stand out amongst other potential buyers.

There are many different ways that buyers can win over sellers. It really depends on the needs of the seller and which buyer’s offer satisfies them most completely. One seller may want the highest dollar amount, while another may prefer a shorter closing period.

However, other strategies include writing personal letters to the seller to explain why your family needs the home. This helps to put a face to your name, and you can use the emotions of the seller in order to have your offer picked.

"Most sellers pick offers with fewer contingencies, more money down, and higher offers with escalation addendums."


Most sellers pick offers with fewer contingencies, more money down, and higher offers with escalation addendums. This says that they will raise their offer ‘x’ amount higher than another offer that comes in above theirs. It basically ensures that they have the highest offer on the home, but it also shows that the buyer is extremely eager to purchase the property.

Remember that it’s the seller’s decision whether to disclose multiple offers to the buyer’s agent, so you should always make your best offer even if you don’t expect other ones. Sellers should keep in mind that they might scare away buyers if they do disclose that it’s a multiple offer situation, but they have to remember the offers may not be as crisp.

Handling multiple offer situations is something that buyers and sellers need to be able to do. Our team is trained extensively in order to capitalize on situations such as these. If you would like to speak with us about handling one, please don’t hesitate to contact us!

How We Negotiated on Behalf of Karen and Her Family



What was your expeirence working with Joy Daniels?
"She went above and beyond by staying in touch with us at all times, making us feel like we are the only ones that matter, she made us very comfortable during the sale. She was open, honest, she did not hold anything back, she was just really awesome. We had a bad experience with a Realtor before her and were nervous about finding a good one. She came highly recommended, and was everything I hoped she would be. At the end of the sale, the buyer wanted us to give them another $700 for some small repairs. She told them we were offering $250 and that wasn't good enough for them. She discussed it with the seller's Realtor and they helped us with our sale."
