The current housing market is competitive. There’s limited inventory and prices are at an all-time high. You might be tempted to make offers on multiple homes, to increase your chances of a sale going through — but is this actually a good idea? Before you make multiple offers, make sure you’ve spoken with a real estate attorney. In some locations, it may even be illegal to sign more than one offer if you’re only interested in buying a single property. If you do decide to make multiple offers, take the necessary steps to protect yourself. This includes giving a separate deposit for each of the offers, accounting for contingencies, and remaining considerate of every seller you interact with.
