Sometimes it pays to stick to your line, even if losing, but then win! After an inspection, our investor clients agreed to make a $400 K offer, for a good value 1 BR apartment. Hours before it was to be accepted, another buyer trumped us with $467 K. We do not get our clients to compete when it would mean overpaying, so we disappointed, and moved on. Our surprise was that 6 days later the other buyer withdrew due to loan reasons, and we skated on to buy for our original amount, $27,000 less than what others thought it was worth! A sweet victory for our clients, and the property is now in settlement. OUR BUYING SERVICES:
