Tracy Shaffer: Writing A Backup Offer Can Put You In A Home
Shopping for your dream house can be stressful. If you’ve been house hunting in a hot market, your stress has most likely been compounded by the multiple offer situation. You look long and hard to find a home that fits your needs, wants and desires, you submit your offer and find you’re competing against 10 other buyers. On-in-ten chance you lose. The reality is, you have to fall in love with a house to consider writing on it and when that love goes unrequited, you need the stamina to pick yourself up, get back in the car and start the search all over again. Sounds like dating, doesn’t it?
