When you’re looking for a house in a hot real estate market like Denver, one way to ensure that you get your dream house is to pay more money than the listing price.

What could be more irresistible in a transaction than more money?

Last week, almost a quarter of the people who bought a home paid more than its asking price. The differences ranged from $100 extra to a full $60,000 more.

Here are the top five overbids of the last week.
