Today, homeowners have three options in selling their homes. That is, selling with an agent the conventional way, selling a house yourself via FSBO or For Sale, By Owner, and more recently, selling it to cash buyers. In all these three ways of selling your house, the homeowner also has the prerogative of offering his home to multiple buyers so that price offers can be matches to as many interested buyer as possible. This will be to your advantage since contending buyers would surely want to sell-off one another and thus give out a competitive bid.

However, there is a way to minimize that fallout and improve your chances of success in handling multiple offers. The best way to handle it is to have a manager present. If you are to sell it to an agent, there may be a variations on their policy but whatever, it is still best that a manager is present to act as third party. So wile the manager supervises the multiple offer process, you, the manager, and the agents can discuss conditions.

So when the highest bid is out, it often results in remorse on the part of the bidders and fallout can be resolved by the manager going through the files and asking buyers to bring back their best offer. This is your big leverage since managers can now study the interest of multiple buyers together with their ceiling price. with this the probability of closing the deal will be higher.
