Any big ticket item invites negotiations on price, so if you’re selling your home it’s best to be prepared.
Always remember that — up until the moment you sign a contract — it’s possible to negotiate the price and buying conditions with your real estate agent and the home buyer. In fact, if you want to make as much money as possible from the sale of your home (and who wouldn’t), you should negotiate.
But how exactly do you do that? Well, here are a few tips!
Put an Expiration Date on Your Counter Offer
This is a great way to create a sense of urgency in the buyers. Adding an expiration date to the counter offer will show them that you mean business.
Agree to Pay Closing Costs
Agreeing to pay all closing costs will sometimes make the buyer more lenient on the selling price and they’ll be willing to pay more for your home.
One of the main reasons that certain properties take a long time to sell is that they’re overpriced. It’s important to try to remain unemotional about the sale of your home and set the price at what it’s actually worth.
