When your offer is presented don’t be insulted if the offer is low.
Be thrilled that an offer came in at all. How motivated are you? Is half of your family here and the rest somewhere else? Look at it as a business decision. Does it make sense to carry that house for an additional five, ten, or twenty thousand dollars? There are many sellers wishing they were the lucky ones to be beginning the negotiation process. Don’t forget, an offer is just the beginning of the dance. There is so much that has to occur between the offer, the inspection, the appraisal, and the closing. Your Realtor has experience in negotiating all of these steps. Listen to what they have to bring to the table.
As always, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any real estate questions.
