In a dynamic market there is a lot of competition that requires timely precise action. No matter how quick or good your actions are, however, you can miss out on a property that you want to buy. When that happens all is not lost. Talk to your agent about making a back up offer. Back up offers can be good for buyers and sellers. A back up offer gives the seller a fall back in case something goes wrong in the primary transaction, and it gives buyers hope while they continue to look for other properties. If the primary transaction goes awry the back up buyer and seller can move comfortably into the new transaction and both get what they want, the sale and purchase of the subject property.
