What does “Highest and Best” mean?
You want the truth? Here it is: Inventory right now is very tight. We see this during election years and also during times of growth and prosperity. In the first case, people tend to put off life’s larger decisions until they feel they have a more clear vision of where the country and where their own lives are headed. In the second case, when times are good and getting better, people sometimes feel comfortable “holding” and enjoying the prosperity before making any large decisions.
Times of tight housing inventory can be VERY LUCRATIVE for sellers and VERY FRUSTRATING for buyers. The bottom line is the good homes sell super, super fast and they usually have multiple offers from multiple buyers that want to purchase the home.
When this happens, sometimes the seller will instruct their real estate agent to issue a “highest and best deadline”. This alerts everyone who has made an offer or is considering making an offer that there are multiple offers. The deadline means, for example, that everyone has until “5:00pm tomorrow to submit their highest and best”. This allows all potentials buyers to review their offers, make any adjustments and cross their fingers.
At Franklin Addison, we are experts at navigating highest and best situations. Just ask some of our previous clients. They’ll tell you how amazed they were by our ability to put their offer at the top of the stack. If you have any questions about how to position yourself better during a highest and best, give us a call. (734) 377-5126 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
