  • Emulating practices prospective employers have utilized for years, some sellers are now performing extensive online searches for buyers submitting offers for their property. Buyers should be aware.

When sellers get multiple offers on their home, my practice is to email every offer to the seller as it comes in, and then I prepare a multiple offer spreadsheet so that they can compare offers side-by-side. I recently met with sellers to go over multiple offers and came to a new realization: sellers are doing their homework on a whole other level.
