As the Bay Area real estate market continues to evolve, so do the sales tactics. As opposed to specific offer dates and purposely under priced listings — both of which that are designed to encourage a bidding war — an increasing number of listings are actually welcoming “offers as they come” (especially when an “offer date” has come and gone…).
Another new twist: actively encouraging “pre-emptive” offers (although we have to ask, without an advertised offer date, pre-emptive to what?). And perhaps it’s just a matter of time before “value-range marketing” (in which a price range for a property is advertised) comes to the Bay Area.
