Winning a Bidding War

The Brantford real estate market is extremely hot right now with many properties receiving multiple offers and selling above asking price. This can be extremely frustrating as a home shopper.


Get connected to the real-time database of properties.  Public sites can be 1-2 days behind the real database - and that can mean you are looking at properties that are already sold or have accepted offers on them. Request A Real-Time Search Account from me.

Look for a diamond in the rough - not every segment of the market is hot - by looking at homes that are not as appealing to the typical move-in ready buyer you will have less competition and be in a better negotiating position.

If you do get into a bidding war try and remove as many of your conditions as possible to make your offer more attractive. This could mean talking with your mortgage broker about removing financing approval, and possibly removing home inspection conditions, or better yet - if the sellers are holding offers - you could have the property inspected before you make an offer.
