Great ideas and so true. The money is still green at closing whether cash buyer it credit buyer.
 
How to Compete With a Cash Real Estate Offer
You have found your dream home made an offer only to find out their is another person bidding against your for it and they are paying cash.

There is no question that going up against a cash buyer and winning is difficult but it's certainly not impossible. While sellers do love the fact that a cash buyer offers less risk, there are always other factors that can help sway your credit offer.

So how do you beat a cash offer? The answer is actually pretty straight forward. You just need to make the other terms of your offer more attractive to the seller. Some of the potential things that could sway a seller from choosing one offer over another are quite obvious and others not so much.

Of course the amount you offer on a home always carries a ton of weight. The money is still green at the closing whether you are getting a mortgage or not!

Additional things discussed in the article include waiving a home inspection or at least agreeing not to nickel and dime the seller for little things after a home inspection. You could also give a larger escrow deposit, give the seller the closing they desire (sometimes that even includes letting them rent back for a period of time).

Playing on their emotions with a nice letter can often times go a long way especially if the seller has happened to meet the buyer. All of these and more are broken down in detail in the article.

Green Lake Homes in Seattle - what better place to live if you like sports and walking or running around the lake.  We have so many wonderful parks in Seattle, but no walking trail is truly as easy and convenient as the Green Lake Loop! +Molly Cartwright +Molly Cartwright is a Green Lake Queen! #greenlake   #greenlakeloop   #seattle   #seattlehomes   #seattlerealestate   #realtors   #pacificnorthwest

What Are Tax Deductions You Should Not Forget?
When buying a home there are tax deductions you will receive as long as you don't forget to claim them!

Take a look at the tax deductions when buying a home!

I love this!
 
Lol, this is good! So what's the highest page you've checked for search results?

I've actually gone as high as page 8. Sometimes you can fine more unique content in the higher pages. :)

Refinished hardwoods? I think not. Pull away the furniture and the rugs to get a peek under the band aids. #seattlehomes

A great way to give a space just a little separation is to add a half wall like in this example!

Agree.  Love half walls.  Also love half and half.  I know, random but none the less true.  Seriously though half walls are the way to go.

Story
Introduction
Seattle Real Estate Owner/Broker & Blogger - I love Seattle Houseboats, Luxury Seattle homes, Seattle Waterfront property, Seattle Parks & Seattle Neighborhoods. 

 You will find me most days around Lake Union, Wallingford, Green Lake, Laurelhurst, Madison Park, Magnolia, or Queen Anne, but I also love Sunset Hill in Ballard!

I try and walk about 5 miles a day minimum and I am as real as possible and will always be straightforward with you. 

Cooper Jacobs Real Estate is a  great office with 27 other Seattle area real estate agents and we all have our own favorite neighborhoods that compliment each other rather than compete against each other. In fact, in many cases, we work as a team to benefit YOU - whether you are a buyer or seller. 

We advertise differently and will sell your home when the last guy did not.  In a multiple offer situation, we can make sure your offer is as strong as possible to increase the chance of you coming out on top.  In fact, in the last multiple offer situation I was in, our offer was less money than two of the other offers and we STILL got the house for our clients!  

We will always tell you the truth.
