Negotiating seems to have become a lost art in what became a strong sellers market, but in today’s more balanced market buyers are feeling hesitant about negotiating for a better price. One of the greatest values a real estate agent provides is negotiating a price that suits both the buyer and the seller. Today Mike D’Ambrosio and Laura Pesavento drop some knowledge that will have you entering negotiations like a pro. Specific topics include:

  • Getting your finances in order with an ideal price and a walk number
  • Be prepared to move fast on a home you like, but don’t get attached
  • Don’t assume inspections and appraisals allow you to reopen renegotiations
  • Playing the sellers emotions with a letter or video
  • Putting together a complete offer package
  • Sellers ability to utilize multiple offers
