Right now the Phoenix market for Single Family Homes under $200k is very competitive. How does an eager buyer in that price-point gain an advantage over the other offers that are bound to come in for the home that meets all their needs?
Get Pre-Approved for a Home Loan. This takes a little longer than beingPre-Qualified, but is well worth your time. Having all your documentation turned in and reviewed by the Underwriter PRIOR TO shopping for homes will put the seller at ease that you are a well-qualified home buyer. Having this done ahead of time makes the escrow process much more smooth and reduces the possibility of "surprises."
Reduce Contingencies.The AAR Purchase Contract already has several contingencies written in to protect the Buyer. Resist the urge to write in additional language that provides numerous escape routes and otherwise complicate the process.
Write a "Clean" Offer. Be willing to pay for your own closing costs, appraisal, and inspections instead of asking the seller to cover those items for you. If the Seller sees Dollar Bills flying out her hands while reviewing your offer, she may be hesitate to do business with you. The fewer calculation the seller needs to make while reviewing your offer, the more likely you will get your offer accepted.

The factors that go into purchasing a home are as varied and dive
"I am writing to express my pleasure with real estate agent Kevin Rodgers who represented me in my recent purchase of a single-family home in Mesa, Arizona.
Kevin guided me through the entire process, from proper location, to searching for houses, to making the offer, and closing the deal. I credit Kevin with a smooth, stress-free home-buying experience.
This is my fourth purchase of property, and never had I had such a pleasurable experience. Kevin is savvy, personable and knows the market inside and out. I never could have gotten my home without him.
Kevin even helped me after closing by opening my house for movers, as I was detained at work. This is an example of Kevin's character and willingness to help his client. Other agents may say they "go the extra mile" but he did for me.
To reiterate, I am nothing but pleased with Kevin and his expertise and I recommend him to everyone.
