What an awesome opportunity to help another Chanhassen first time home buyer! It was a pleasure to assist this homebuyer in the purchase of their first home! In any seller's market, it is not uncommon to be in multiple offer scenarios when you go to submit an offer on a property.
This Chanhassen home had 3 other offers competing. We were able to beat out the competition on this one and secured an accepted purchase agreement.
Multiple offers are where more than one buyer is presenting their offer to a seller. This can really be any amount of offers even 10 or more on a really hot property. The situation is typically handled by the seller giving all qualified buyer's the opportunity to give their highest and best offer, which is usually presented to the seller all at once with a specific deadline. The seller then will go through the pro's and con's of each offer presented and determine which offer will be chosen.
This Chanhassen Home is now sold and Closed! Since we're still in a hot seller's market, this Chanhassen home for sale actually sold in just 2 days! Our offer was chosen over two other offers in this competitive market. The listed price on this Chanhassen home for sale was $285,000, the final sale price ended up being $297,250 with the seller contributing $8,266 toward the buyers closing costs.
In the state of Minnesota, it has been typical to ask the seller to make some contributions to the buyers closing costs in the form of concessions. Since the current market has low inventory, buyers are competing more heavily to gain an accepted offer. This usually means that any closing costs the buyer needs would be added to the listed price of the home in order to 'win' the competition.
This Chanhassen homeowner was pleased with the offer that came in. They were wonderful to work with and the sale was a nice smooth transaction.
This home is located not far from Kerber Pond Park, Schools and desirable restaurants. The Chanhassen home for sale was a split level property with 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, a 2 car garage and built in 1973. This property sold and closed on 3/30/2018 making this first time home buyer excited to get into the new home and make it their own!
