What Is A Counter Offer?

A seller can respond to a buyer’s offer with changes or a counter that improves the terms. You need to put yourself in their shoes and construct a modified offer that you think they might accept that meets more of your needs.

Then it’s their turn to accept, reject, or construct yet another counter. It’s an efficient market process, but beware of clauses and costs that matter. Your broker should be closely involved in constructing a counter.

Successful bargaining is best done with a win-win approach. Where each side is referring to their most pressing needs while compromising others in order to reach an agreement.

Remember that outside conditions like interest rates and supply and demand will keep evolving. So you’ll need to be patient but decisive to craft a counter offer that works for both sides.
