Killer Negotiating in a SELLER’S Market?????

 

A thought to all home buyers:

 

Okay, so now the inventory of homes are at an all time low, and we’re looking at a 4 month inventory of homes ..possibly 3. And this is the time that you want to offer a lowball price on a property that you KNOW will have multiple offers.  WRONG!

 

The BELOW than “normal” interest rates to date have made history. THAT IS A FACT.  Lower prices and lower interest rates meant lower monthly mortgage payments.  Those that do not have all cash down have to rely on making ends meet with a monthly budget allotted for a mortgage payment. AGREED? AGREED!!

 

Okay, so now the inventory of homes are at an all time low, and we’re looking at a 4 month inventory of homes ..possibly 3. And this is the time that you want to offer a lowball price on a property that you KNOW will have multiple offers.  WRONG!

 

If you need sound advice regarding the current market value on a home you would like to make an offer on….ask your REALTOR® for current comparable properties.  If your REALTOR gave you good comps and you try to be a killer negotiator, then be prepared to lose that home you really love.

 

 If you really love that home, you give it your best shot.

 

 OR LOSE THAT HOME you really loved.

 

 Sounds like common sense to me.
