How do Home Sellers handle Multiple Offers?

Here in the San Francisco Bay Area multiple offers are still the norm. Demand is high and inventory of homes / condos for sale is low. The tech industry has brought in a lot of people with money to spend!

Here in San Francisco's West Portal neighborhood where my office is located, 9 homes sold in the past six months. The selling price averaged 12.5% over asking, with an average 21 days on market. Median sales price of $1,385,000.

How do home sellers handle multiple offers? It's a combination of many different details: 

1. The highest offer

2. The best mortgage-qualified buyer

3. The offer with no contingencies

4. The all cash offer

5. The buyer who can close the fastest.
