Knowledge = Power

You know that right now you must make the strongest offer possible in order to “win” properties in the DC area.

….But timing has a lot to do with your strongest offer.

There is a great article in the Washington Post today that details some of the old tricks we had to use in 2005 when we wanted to win our chosen property.

You can find the full article at

We just talked about highest and best requests a few days ago, and the WP article touches on the low ball listing tactic that usually comes with those competitive auction style scenarios.

I might also remind you that the last time we used those tactics was back in 2005-2006 – just before we had massive issues with our real estate pricing across the country.

Be careful out there – and don’t let emotions get in the way of a good business plan.

Let me know if there is anything I can do to help your business,
