Q: Some of your clients are beginning to use the new Final Offer platform. Can you tell us something about it?

A: The real value of Final Offer is transparency and the ease of making an offer. Sellers can outline to the public what terms are most important to them when selling their home, and buyers can see what it takes to win their perfect new home! Recently, at one of our open houses in Bethesda, a buyer hit the “Buy it Now” button on Final Offer and in a very short time, “won” the home without the hassle of back-and-forth, messy, crossed-out contracts and multiple attachments. There was no confusion as to the winning terms of an offer. Everyone was happy with the speed and transparency of the process!

B: We’re hearing that it’s now a “Buyers’ Market.” Have sellers missed their window to sell?

A: No way! The Covid market inflated prices so much that what people think of as a “Buyers’ Market” today is really more of a normal market. Demand for homes in Montgomery County is still tremendous. We can’t stress enough the need for more inventory—there are so few homes on the market. It’s still a great time to sell.
