Determining an Offering Price: Selecting the right home is the easy part. The real challenge when it comes to buying is making an offer acceptable to the seller. Here are some factors to consider before making your offer.
Are you in a buyer’s or seller’s market? Generally speaking, in a buyer’s market, you will be in a better bargaining position. Find out how many days the property has been on the market. Check the prices of comparable properties that are currently listed for sale in the area and find out what comparable properties are.
There are certain reasons for a homeowner’s motivation to sell. These are the following:
- job transfer
- purchase of another home
- financial problems
These factors will make a seller more open to negotiation.
Also, keep in mind that the seller’s realtor is obligated to try to get the best deal they can be for the seller. It would be in your best interest to hire a realtor who will act on your behalf.
