OK, enough from me about battling for homes. Check out this article from well respected Inman News.
I've just noticed another up-tick in Buyer demand, and heard of a home getting 40 offers. Based on reports, my guess is that home sold for 45% over asking. So the battle rages on, and until you're on the home-owners side of the fence, you're at a disadvantage.
Call or email me if you want to stop making multiple failed offers and finally be the winning bidder so you can profit from what is expected to be continued appreciation so long as Demand far out-strips Supply. Read the above article for more on that too.
