Can you offer on more than one property?
Whether you can make offers on other properties will depend on how your conditions are written.
If you offer on a property while you’re waiting to hear back on another one, you could end up with two accepted offers and two legally binding contracts..
Do you have to disclose multiple offers?
Whether it is legal or not to tell the Buyers how much the competing offers actually are, it may be simply unethical to disclose the contents of competing offers to others. … Instead, ask all Buyers to bring back their best offer.
Do estate agents lie about other offers?
When an estate agent markets a home they’re legally obliged to treat both buyers and sellers fairly by following the Code of Practice for Residential Estate Agents. This means they should not lie about offers to any party involved.
Do sellers always pick the highest offer?
When it comes to buying a house, the highest offer always gets the house — right? Surprise! The answer is often “no.” Conventional wisdom might suggest that during negotiations, especially in a multiple-offer situation, the buyer who throws the most money at the seller will snag the house.
Should I offer above asking price?
There is no standard discount, but as everyone knows there will be some ‘argy-bargy’ about the price as agents tend to ‘list the property for sale’ at an asking price usually about 5-10% more than the vendor will accept to sell their home.
Can you put two offers on two different houses?
Yes, in many cases it’s possible to make offers on more than one home at a time (though some local real estate laws might forbid it). But it might cost you money in the form of a lost deposit. Much depends on the wording of the contract and your local laws.
Can seller accept another offer after accepting?
Only after the first contract is clearly over can the seller accept the second offer. … A: Offers from other buyers can be accepted by the seller even if the property is under contract. The seller may or may not be able to break the first buyer’s contract and successfully sell to the higher bidder.
Can a seller lie about multiple offers?
As everyone else has said, yes they can lie about other offers but if you have an escalation clause that is being used, they need to present the other offer if requested. … One of the problems with agents is they lie so much its essentially impossible to assume they are telling the truth … or to assume they are lying.
Can a seller look at multiple offers?
Sellers can accept the “best” offer; they can inform all potential purchasers that other offers are “on the table”; they can “counter” one offer while putting the other offers to the side awaiting a decision on the counter-offer; or they can “counter” one offer and reject the others.
Should you offer asking price?
There are other reasons for going in with an offer lower than the seller’s asking price. … Remember that the asking price is not set in stone. If you feel as though the property is worth less than what the seller is asking, go in lower, but be fair. Offering half isn’t likely to go down well!
When should you make a second offer on a house?
If no one else is actively trying to buy the house, you simply need to make your second offer as attractive as possible. Only ever offer more than the asking price if you know someone else has offered the asking price, or if you are really desperate to get this property.
What happens if two offers are made on a house?
For instance: If you’re in a seller’s market — meaning that homes are selling quickly and for more than the asking prices — and you received multiple offers, your agent may recommend you counteroffer with an amount higher than you would have in a buyer’s market.
