We had been looking to buy a house for over a year. We put in offers on a number of places we fell in love with, only to get beat by all cash offers each time. It was hard enough to lose a house that we were so excited about, but what made it worse was that it felt like we weren’t even playing the game by the same rules. Each house we lost out on was due to an all-cash bidder – our offers were not even attractive in comparison, and that felt incredibly defeating.
Our wonderful Bayside agent did everything she could and went above and beyond to sell our offers to the agents, but the promise of a cash offer was too enticing for sellers. We knew we needed to regroup before we lost another house; or worse, gave up on the process entirely.
That’s when our agent introduced us to the HomeLight cash offer program, and it changed everything! She walked us through how it would help us in our search; how we’d be partnering with a trusted company to utilize the power of an all-cash offer, all the while keeping to our original budget, hopes and plans!
We knew working with Homelight was our “in” to playing the same game as the rest of the market. Once we partnered together, the HomeLight team moved quickly to get us approved for our mortgage! Knowing we were already approved made us so much more confident touring houses; and the next house we bid on we won – despite not being the highest offer!! We not only got the house, we didn’t pay the highest offer price, and we moved in a week before our wedding!
Yoshiko came in to represent the sale of my home after it was on the market for over 8 months previously and got it sold in about 3 weeks. They were a pleasure to work with, committed, always available, knowledgeable, and professional. Thank you both once again.
