If you're a home buyer in the current market, you need to know that you'll likely be in competition for the best properties.  In order to increase  your chances of success, you need to have the right understanding of the market, the right mindset when making your offer, and the right information regarding the property and your own qualification.  I've had to the opportunity to be a part of countless competing offer situations, and I take pride in being able to guide my clients to success.
