When buyer demand is high and inventory is low, you may find yourself in a multiple-offer situation. While an all-cash offer can be enticing for a seller, it’s still possible to beat one with an offer that considers additional “plus” points for a seller. Being fully underwritten as well as offering more earnest money, a quick close, a pre-inspection and fewer contingencies can all boost your chances of coming out on top. Your John L.

The Kootenai County housing market is already hot in the more affordable and mid-price ranges as we begin the new decade. We expect extreme frenzy sales activity intensity in the spring for homes up to $350,000 (60 percent of sales activity), and surge sales activity intensity in the $350,000 to $500,000 range (24 percent of sales activity). Local buyers are feeling the squeeze, as overall unsold inventory at the beginning of the year was down 36 percent from last year. Some relief will be on the way as the weather warms up and sellers choose to put their homes on the market.
