This success story demonstrates the value of persistence and backup offers. The buyers found this property through their best friends who live just a few doors down. When they saw the home come up for sale they called Emily, as she was the agent they used to purchase their home. They wanted to preview the home for their friends, but unfortunately when they reached out to Emily the home was already under contract.
Emily persuaded them to look at the home anyway, as it was available for backup offers. They toured the home, put in their backup offer and waited. Sure enough, the original contract fell apart and Emily’s clients slid into first place. The buyers had an overseas trip already planned, so while they were gone Emily and the CK Team took care of all the details while they were away. They returned to completed inspections and were able to close 4 days later.
In summary, backup offers can seem like a lost cause, but they shouldn’t be avoided. With a strong agent like Emily, with a full-service team behind her, making a backup offer might just pay off and get you that home you didn’t think could be yours!
