Home Buying Tips - How To Get Your Offer On A Home Accepted

June 10th, 2019

Are you planning on buying a home in Houston Texas or elsewhere in the United States? If so, you've come to the right place!

In this article, I'll share with you several tips which will help you to make an offer on a home that will be accepted.  

Tips For Submitting An Offer On A Home  

#1 - Submit A Pre-Approval Letter - One of the first things that you should do when submitting an offer on a home in Houston Texas or elsewhere in the United States is to submit a pre-approval letter with your offer.

This tip is important because a pre-approval letter will set your offer apart from other offers that the seller may have received that are only pre-qualified for financing.  

#2 - Don’t Include A Lot Of Contingencies - Another handy thing that you can do when submitting an offer on a home is drop most of the contingencies that you may have considered requesting.

Although this strategy does come with some risks, waving some or all of your contingencies may make your offer more appealing to a seller especially if they need to sell fast.  

#3 - Use A Healthy Earnest Money Deposit - Last of all, but most important, another vital tip that I can offer you which will help you to get your offer accepted on a home in Houston Texas is to you to use a healthy earnest money deposit. This means that you should not put down a low earnest money deposit, you should increase your “skin in the game” and go as high as $5,000 (or more) because, any seller that sees that you're applying a healthy earnest money deposit will see you as more committed to the transaction versus another buyer who only applies a smaller amount of money that they can walk away from.
