Show Notes

Seller's Markets can make for challenging situations if you're looking for a home or an investment property - tons of competition, multiple offers, lots of power in the hands of the other party.

How can you make your offer stand out? Or, at least, how can you be sure to submit an offer that includes everything that the selling party requests?

Join Jason Muth and Attorney / Broker Rory Gill of NextHome Titletown and UrbanVillage Legal in Boston, Massachusetts, and learn all about how you should submit an offer in a seller's market during this episode of The Real Estate Law Podcast!
