Choosing The Best Offer


We may have to toss a coin to select the buyer.

We have competing identical offers...same price,  same financing, same terms...even the same closing date. Twice now we have asked for best and final...both times they continue to be the same.  


Both agents are professional and will be easy to work with. 



coin toss Margaret Rome


Tomorrow, I meet with the seller to decide.  Both agents know about my appointment.

Unless there is a change from either buyer, there may be a coin toss to choose the lucky buyer. 

Have you ever had identical contracts?

How did you decide?
