Buyers sometimes unwittingly make simple mistakes that significantly impact their chances of an offer being accepted or countered. Some of these mistakes are pretty obvious, others not so much.

I have jokingly coined these mistakes the “seven purchasing sins”.  They are:

  1. Dragging your feet
  2. Offering your MAX approval amount
  3. Using an obscure lender
  4. Lowballing
  5. Waiving inspection contingency
  6. Letting others sway your offer
  7. Not selling yourself (the WORST)
