Putting an offer on a house...How competitive is it?

How many houses did you have to put offers on before you finally got an acceptance?

I am asking because we are starting to look at houses to buy.

  • We have owned 4 homes and for each one we were the only bidders, so it was not competitive. This is a buyer's market and you couldn't be buying a ta better time. Still you want to do your homework, have a good home inspector, and bid in relation to what homes are selling for in the area. Good Luck!
