Q: When you finally settle on the house you want to buy and you find there are multiple offers, how should you negotiate to make your offer the better one?
A: To those who are not currently active in the market, your question might seem a little bizarre. Multiple offers? In this buyer's market? Absolutely! The best-priced homes in the best condition in the most desirable neighborhoods are still receiving multiple offers, even on today's market where so many sellers are struggling just to get a single one.
In fact, even homes that need more than a little TLC can get multiple offers if they are priced and/or located "right."
So, what's a buyer to do?
