When it comes to buying a home many buyers feel that it
should always be a negotiation between themselves and the seller when it comes

When you and your Agent find the home that might be “the

you’re considering and let you know whether the home is priced right, too high
or even lower than the current market. If the house is priced correctly or
lower than the average for the area, you might want to consider making a
full-price offer and offering to pay fair market value. Not only will this get
things off on the right foot with the seller but it will stand you in good
stead down the line when it comes time to negotiate repairs or even if

In the current Raleigh-Durham market homes that are priced
right are selling within a couple of days of hitting the market. Along with
receiving information on new listings in a timely manner on our website and
