The highest bid is the obvious choice, right? Not necessarily. Here’s what to consider before making an offer:

Focus on your priorities. Take this step early, before any offers roll in. Make a list of what’s most important to you, like a tight moving deadline or your financial needs. Are there any requests that would make an offer a deal breaker for you?

Review your contingencies. Now that you’ve established your top priorities, determine your contingencies. Common contingencies for buyers include a property financing, sale of current home, appraisal and a home inspection.

Think about how much earnest money your want to offer. You need to show you that your offer is the best by putting down a decent amount of earnest money.  The more money they put into the deposit, the more likely the seller will accept your offer.
