 Make your offer stronger!! 

1. Offer over asking price - this is the first thing sellers look at when an offer comes in. Make sure you have pulled comps and are aware of the market value.

2 Wave or limit contingencies - the less outs for the buyer, the more the seller will be secure with the buyers contract.

3. Don't ask the seller to pay for any closing costs - this reduces the seller's net proceeds and tells the seller the buyer does not have any additional money.

4. Offer additional earnest money - buyer will show strong good faith by risking additional earnest money.

5. Put an escalation clause in - "buyer will pay 1000 dollars more than any other offer not to exceed (a certain amount) with proof of competing offer."

6. Put additional money down - show your financial strength by putting 10 - 20 percent down or more in your offer.
