There’s no denying that Bend Oregon Home inventory is tight right now and it can be hard for some buyers to get their offers accepted because they just get “lost” in a sea of multiple offers from other buyers.
The good news is that you can have the advantage over the competition when buying a home in Bend if you follow these simple tips.
Tip 1 – Go To Open Houses and Make A Great Impression
Although open houses might be regarded as “taboo” in 2015, you can still make yourself known to a seller’s agent at an open house.
When attending open houses make sure to follow etiquette and always ask if you can sit on furniture or see other parts of the home that the Realtor ® may not show you.
Tip 2 – Get a Pre-Offer Inspection
Since inspections sometimes can delay the acceptance of an offer by seven to 10 days, you should consider getting a pre-offer “verbal” inspection before you make an offer because, this will enable you to move forward without an inspection contingency and you can always get a written inspection later on.
Tip 3 – Ask For A Pre-Approval Letter
Last of all, another great way to get your offer on a Bend Oregon Home accepted is for you to get pre-approved for a mortgage loan then get a pre-approval letter because, this will show a home owner that you without a doubt are pre-approved for a mortgage loan and have secured financing versus other buyers.
