Well, it’s a good idea to be prepared for negotiations.
Always remember that — if you haven’t signed a contract yet — it’s still possible to negotiate the price and buying conditions with your real estate agent and the home buyer.
In fact, you should.
(You want to make as much money as possible, after all!)
But how do you do that?
Well here are a few tips!
Put an Expiration Date on Your Counter Offer — This is a great way to create a sense of urgency in the buyers. Adding an expiration date to the counter offer will show them that you mean business.
Agree to Pay Closing Costs — Agreeing to pay all closing costs will sometimes make the buyer more lenient on the selling price and they’ll be willing to pay more for your home.
Be Realistic — One of the main reasons that certain properties take a long time to sell is that they’re overpriced. It’s important to try to remain unemotional about the sale of your home and that the price is set at what it’s actually worth.
