Client Success Story

By Derek Stout

This true story from a recent closing demonstrates the market almost perfectly. Congrats to my clients for purchasing an incredible home in Miami!


Client has watched one building in Miami for over a year. Watching prices go up. We find a great unit they love and wind up with a backup offer that was not accepted.


👉 The seller would have sold for our UNDER ASK offer but they got an OVER ASK offer from an out of state buyer (while we were writing our offer) - seller took that OVER ASK offer.


Next, we tour a completely redone unit in the same building (spoiler, they wound up buying) and make a full price offer. This condo is brand new inside, ultimate interior finishes, incredible view. Great place. Price was right where the building should be. Offer accepted.


Offer contingent on finance, appraisal, and condo association approval.


Finance: client secures a great loan at a fantastic rate - WOW ❤


Appraisal: appraiser comes out and they value the unit at 8% less than the contract price. HUH?




We check the comps and nothing in the building is selling that low. In fact, my buyer is getting a great find. 




Appraiser winds up making an improved adjustment to the appraisal but still not at the contract price.


Rightly, the seller would not concede a penny because they know that in this market they can relist and get another buyer or higher price no problem.


🚀 Client had to increase their down payment to cover the appraisal gap.


Because of a great lender, help from me, and my client’s commitment to the process we were able to close and now they have a great place!


This is the market in a nutshell:

  • Out of state buyers are paying over ask because they think our prices are cheap
  • Local buyers biggest competitor are cash buyers
  • Sellers are facing difficult transactions with owners out of state or out of the country, and buyers also in other places. These deals are tough when no one is in person.
  • Local buyers biggest advantage is that you're here and you can make an offer the day you see it
  • Don't count on the appraisal one way or another
  • Work with caring professionals from lending to your Realtor to the Title company to make sure the deal goes through
