Sometimes the first offer to come
in is the best one when the market is red hot. When a house is fresh on the market, there is usually a rush
of buyer activity and the buyers who see it during the first few days are those most
likely to be the most interested. If you are fortunate enough to get an offer to purchase
right away, you will probably be better off in the long run if you accept it or
try to negotiate and come to terms.
