What is the comeback strategy? Let me give you an example of how it works.
I once had a buyer who made an offer on a home and then countered back and forth with the seller until they decided to walk away and find another home. We showed them many other homes, but they ultimately realized they made a mistake and missed out on the home they wanted.
To rectify this, we decided to write a second contract on that first home. We took into account what the seller was looking for price-wise to make an offer that was more appealing to the seller but still worked for the buyer. We also increased the purchase price, asked the seller to pay the buyer’s closing costs, and asked for a closing date that was more appealing to the seller.
Don’t be afraid to make a second offer on a home if you later realize it’s the one for you.
After all that, we finally got an agreement and we’re now moving toward closing. I also think the seller had time to realize they maybe should’ve worked harder with the buyer to come to an agreement.
The point of the comeback strategy is to not be afraid to come back and make a second offer on a home if you later realize it’s a good home for you. You also need to work with an agent who is strong enough to encourage you when you’re making a mistake to come back and bring a second offer.
If you have any questions or I can help you in buying or selling your next home, give me a call or send me an email. I’d be glad to help.
