Housing Market – How To Win A Bidding War

Housing Market – How To Win A Bidding War

It’s no longer a secret that the housing market is on fire. With mortgage rates hitting record lows, demand has hit all-time highs giving sellers the upper hand. That’s why you’ll hear stories of houses going way over asking price, all-cash offers, and intense bidding wars. So, how do you stand a chance at getting your dream home when the competition is this fierce? 

In the video above, Get A Rate CEO Michael Sema goes over the secret to standing out to sellers without an all-cash offer

It starts with putting yourself in the seller’s shoes. Ultimately, sellers want to close the deal fast. To do that, they’ll want to choose a buyer with the best chance of making that happen. That’s done by looking at the offer letters and pre-approval letters. And what Michael reveals is that not all pre-approvals are the same, and he figured out a way to get buyers at the top of the pile: offering a $2,000 Guaranteed Pre-Approval.

He explains how Get A Rate pre-underwrites loans in about 15 minutes to guarantee the buyer will get the loan and close the deal. And if for some rare reason the buyer can’t secure the loan, Get A Rate will pay out $1,000 to the buyer and $1,000 to the seller. That’s music to a seller’s ears. See if any other lender or bank is willing to do that!

Watch the video to find out all the details of why this $2,000 Guaranteed Pre-Approval is so powerful in this hot market. Or, ready to apply now. The process to qualify couldn’t be easier. Just follow these two steps, and you could get pre-approved in 10 minutes or less. 

  • Fill out a digital pre-approval application to verify your eligibility. 
  • Once our underwriters verify your income, you will get an automatic pre-approval letter.

That’s it!
