Negotiating Tips for SellersPosted on 02/18/16
Are you thinking about selling your home or condo in Crystal Beach? Here’s a little cheat sheet to reference when it comes time negotiate.
Leave a little room for negotiation in your asking price. As an agent in the business for more than 20 years, I can tell you from experience that most buyers will want to haggle. It is human nature to want to feel like you got a “deal.” It makes buyers happy to think they have talked you down.
Consider all offers. Don’t dismiss low-ball offers as an insult. Our strategy is to come back with a slightly lower offer than the original asking price. This does two things. It shows you are willing to negotiate, but that you are not desperate.
Do your homework. Everything can come down to research. You real estate agent can give you a realistic price range for what homes are selling for, and help you determine if a buyer’s offer is fair.
