If you come across a home that you absolutely love, chances are there a couple of other people that feel the same way. In a multibid situation for the home of your dreams there is just one simple strategy, offer your MAX. If they take it then great! And if they go with another offer, you can rest easy knowing you gave it your all. It is a horrible feeling when you offer under your max in the hopes of saving a few thousand and the seller choosing not to counter and going with another offer. And it is even worse when the home closes and you see it sold for less than what your MAX was.
