1. Tell your story. Yes, you've heard it before, buyers including a letter with their offer telling them why they want the house and who will live there. As much as real estate might be our business, it is very personal for the
sellers and the buyers, Creating a human connection amongst all those disclaimers and disclosures, might give you the advantage to surge ahead.
2. Show up. See the property at least twice. The initial showing and one follow-up talk about how this is the property that you want.
3. Drop the contingencies -- or at least as many as possible. It's hard to advise to buy a house without a financing contingency but maybe drop the others such as home inspection. However, that doesn't mean you can't have one so you at least you know what you are getting into.
4. Be prepared and be ready to close. The least complicated financing and the quickest path maybe a conventional mortgage. Please have more than just a pre-qualification letter.
