Aside from your offer price there are several other ways to set you apart in this process. If you are not in a position to write a subject free offer (i.e. you need a finance clause, inspection clause, etc.), it is important to make the subject period as short as possible. You could consider having a pre-offer inspection completed and review all documents relating to the property (title, disclosures, etc.) in advance so that you can remove these clauses. If a finance clause is necessary be sure you have a pre-approval and speak with your mortgage professional to see how quickly the financing can be completed.
Last but not least, accompany your Realtor. In this instance my client and I remained in our car outside the home in question for three hours. At the end of the day this was a huge reason that they had the winning offer as they were able to sign and counters immediately.
