Negotiating for Top Dollar
Selling your home? Every seller wants to make sure they sell their home for the best possiblesales price. Getting top dollar for your home is not as complicated as you might think. By usinga simple negotiation strategy, you can make sure to receive the best price for your home listing.
The first step in a negotiation strategy begins before you even list your home. Choosing theright real estate agent and listening to their advice regarding home value is important. Choosea realistic list price; over-pricing to “test the market” is not only a waste of time but as thelisting ages on the market, buyers are more likely to write lowball offers.
Once you receive an offer; review and respond to all reasonable offers. Never assume that abuyer isn’t serious just because the offer is lower than you’re willing to accept. Make areasonable counter offer; if you are motivated to lower your price, you can, but if not,countering with a full price number is acceptable also. Just make sure your price is fair for theactual value of the home.
Consider compromising on terms. Often you can negotiate a higher sales price if you areflexible on other terms. Does the buyer need extra time to close/move? Would they like tohave the garage shelves or patio furniture? Win-win situations do not have to involvecompromising on price.
All negotiations are different, but by setting the proper stage and calmly navigating throughoffers, you can make sure you sell your home for the best possible sales price. Getting topdollar for your home is a simple strategy of fair pricing and unemotional negotiations.
