First Time Buyers >Bargaining
You have done everything that your agent recommended to make your home look wonderful and you have cut your asking price to the bone. Even so, an offer comes in which is so low that you are offended! Is it possible to reconcile your differences and reach a meeting of the minds when presented with such an offer?
It may not take many concessions on your part to make the transaction work if the people who love your house also love to bargain. Even though it may seem that you are far apart in dollar amount or terms of sale, the real distance may not be all that great. Your real estate agent can help you determine if the buyers are ready, willing and able to carry through with the transaction. If they are qualified, the next step involves evaluating your differences. Look for areas where you have some flexibility to negotiate. You may have to go back and forth several times in order to make the transaction work. The trick is to be patient and to not take the process personally!
I realize that buying and selling a home is one of the most crucial financial transactions of your life. In what can be a confusing and sometimes difficult process, it pays to leave as little to chance as you can. With my help, you can navigate unknown territory with ease. To fill the specific residential needs of home buyers and sellers, the Residential Sales
Council of the National Association of REALTORS institutes a class of
expert real estate professionals: the Certified Residential Specialists (CRS). Fewer than 3% of all Realtors have earned the right to be called a "CRS". Fewer than 3% have developed special residential sales skills and enhanced their residential sales knowledge through education, dedication and experience. At Bonnie Ferrell & Co., Inc., I am proud of the fact that I have earned the CRS designation, and therefore have the knowledge and experience to assist you through the entire home buying process.
Additionally I am also a licensed residential and commercial contractor. I have been actively building new homes since 1996.
I invite you to put my vast skills and knowledge to work for you.
