A Trulia Voices question that came up today was whether a buyer can make multiple offers on different homes at the same time. Of course they can. This is a good strategy in a seller's market as well as in a buyer's market. It give better chances to a buyer when normally the seller is holding all the cards - or information. Normally a buyer will receive counter offers from all his bids. Then the buyer can weigh the best value vs. the different amenities and locations of each house. At this stage the buyer is closer to knowing that each seller's true motivation is in reference to the price they are willing to sell.
