Sellerโ€™s are drawn to straight forward offers. In a sellerโ€™s market offers filled with conditions rarely make the cut, so make sure your offer is as clean as possible. We suggest, doing a pre-inspection and ensuring youโ€™re pre-approved for a mortgage, doing these things before hand can help eliminate the need for certain conditions.

Be as mindful as possible of the sellers closing date, you have a better chance of winning if you can close on their terms.


A deposit is like a gesture of good faith from a buyer, the larger your deposit the more serious youโ€™ll come across to the seller. Including your deposit with the offer can also increase your chances of winning.

Write a letter with your offer showcasing who you are and why you want the house. This strategy can be especially helpful for first time buyers and families – there are still a lot of sellers who just want to see their home be loved in the same way they did.
