With the inventory levels being so low, the competition is high and it can be difficult for buyers in our current market. You want your offer to stand out. How you can do this is to understand the sellers... Find out what they might want and/or need, then format your offer to appeal to their needs. For example, they might need to temporarily rent the home after the close of escrow, or they might need to close quickly... whatever their terms may be, your job is to find out and then tailor your offer to accommodate the sellers' needs.
Sellers Advice: When it comes to selling your home, timing is everything! The best time to sell is when the market demand is high and the competition is scarce. Keep an eye on your neighborhood and see how fast homes are selling near you. If properties are selling fast, it's probably the right time to sell. Hire a realtor to help you survey the market and the current competition; when the time is right, they will help place your home up for sale.

"I found Joseph through Yelp, and despite his excellent rating, I watched him for months with an eagle eye for signs that he was at the end of his rope with my demands or giving less than 100% towards my home search/negotiations/escrow. Well, his dedication never flagged, and he remained professional even when we (ok, just my husband) got grouchy.
Throughout, Joseph was honest about his knowledge of our targeted areas, never over-inflating his opinion, and his advice always came with the deference to our wishes (unless we were about to make a huge mistake!). He is familiar with some pretty diverse pockets of San Diego County, but really made it a point to understand our tastes and needs. He drove me to countless showings, always with an organized plan, and scoured the new listings for us though we did use his helpful on-line search site too. We were implementing a 1031 exchange, so he helped us with projected rental prices, and is following through with his offer to assist in finding renters and maintain the properties (he does some limited property management for his family's company).
I think one of Joseph's best qualities is that he loves what he does. Things that appear as huge roadblocks to the client are enticing challenges for him. Buying or selling, I feel confident in recommending Joseph Arendsen as a person on whom you can rely."
