There is a lot of emotion going around during a real estate sale whether it’s because someone is downsizing, moving up or just plain moving. Today Mike is joined by Intero Managing Officer and Core Services S.V.P., Brian Crane, who explains how to give yourself the best shot at securing the home you want when the market is crazy competitive. It’s not always about how much money you’re willing to put down, finding out what the buyer really wants might just give you the edge you need. Specific topics include:

  • The story of “The Dirt”
  • Tech refugees and other people who switch careers for real estate
  • The state of the market- Are we hot or not?
  • Non-contingent offers and their risks
  • Challenging appraisals
  • Getting into contract in a competitive market- What steps should you and agent be taking?
