This delightful home is the epitome of urban sophistication. With 3360 square feet of living space, an additional 1211 square feet of garage and garage/studio space, all on a 40,000 square foot lot, you’ll only find a home like this in North Park once in a lifetime.
I know that I have given you pointers before on how to get your offer accepted, but as our market in San Diego gets tighter, I will include other tips to help you even further.
In todays housing market, we are receiving multiple offers on most of the listings that we are putting on the market. With that being said, we are able to see just why one offer stands out above the rest and ultimately why our sellers pick that one great offer.
With San Diego's low inventory, when a home comes on the market, and you really want it, the first thing that you should have in place is good representation. Not only is a good Realtor important but a great Lender is crucial as well. Your Realtor should guide you and suggest to your lender that you get a lender underwriter approval. What this means is that you have filled out your application for your loan with your lender and you have been fully approved, not just a Pre- approval. This is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT and will make your offer stand out! With this in place, you will be able to cut your loan contingency dates down from the customary 17 days to 12-14 days.
When writing an offer, another thing to cut down are the days of your home inspection contingency. In this market, your agent should be able to get this done with in 5-7 days, removing the inspection contingency in 7-8 days. Your Realtor should have a relationship with a few home inspectors and be able to get one to accommodate them rather quickly. Another thing to consider is to not ask for the seller to do termite work.
Of course let us not forget about list price. Just because you write an offer at list price does not mean that you are in the playing field. We are receiving offers 10-50 thousand over list price, depending on the price points. If you write you offer under list price, you are probably going to write a lot of offers without being successful.
