Understand the local market Lakeland Fl home prices are dictated by the current market conditions.. Ask your Lakeland Fl agent for a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) to give you an idea of current home prices based on comparable homes that have recently sold. Some homes may also be underpriced in order to attract more offers from buyer. This means that you need to make a bid a little over the initial asking price.

Before writing an offer for that Lakeland Fl home for sale, ask the seller questions. It may spell the difference between your offer being accepted or rejected.

When writing your offer, include your earnest money deposit which is payable to an escrow company and to be delivered by your Lakeland Fl agent no more than 3 business days after the offer is accepted.
