Its Not ALWAYS About Negotiating

Its Not ALWAYS About Negotiating

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 to the purchase price of the property. That’s not always true.

When you and your Agent find the home that might be “the one”, your Buyer’s Agent will check the local Multiple Listing Service for you to determine what homes have sold for that are comparable to the home 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 something unforeseen happens to derail the settlement date and it must be rescheduled.

 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 making a quick appointment to see it with your Agent you should be able to get the home you want before you end up in a “bidding war” with other potential buyers which usually results in the home selling for more than full price.  A full price offer, if warranted, and if in your best interests, will help you win the day.

Ultimately getting the home you want at a fair price should be every buyer’s goal and will lead to a win-win situation for both parties involved.

The place to start finding your new home and having your winning offer accepted is here.
