You found the right home, what’s next?  

 

You have done the work, you have your loan ready to go and you have found the home you want, what is the next step? How do you negotiate to get the best price? As a Realtor, this is the dilemma I go through with clients all the time. They love the home, but they don’t want to over pay.

 

The first step is to make sure that the price that is being asked for the home is reasonable. The first job for a Realtor before an offer is made is to check the comparable sales in the area in the last 3 months. Once you have the numbers, it is time to sit down and come up with an offer. The Real Estate Market at the time you are making the offer has a great deal to do with what your offer should be. If the Market is a hot market and properties are not lasting very long, then your negotiating is going to be limited. Do not allow your Realtor to try and be your hero. Remember the only real way to negotiate is to be ready to walk away from the deal. If you are not willing to walk away and the price of the home is in line with the comparable sales in the area then don’t fool around, get the offer accepted with the price that is being asked. I suggest you do not get into a bidding war, make your best offer and don’t blink.

 

In my business of Property Management in Anaheim Ca. I explain to my Home buyers, that if you are willing to walk away from the deal then you can negotiate. First, if the property has been on the market for a while then you are in a much better position to negotiate. Your first offer should be lower than the asking price, but not ridiculous, many home owners get offended and you want to make sure you get a counter offer. The next step is once you make the offer, walk away and do not act anxious about getting the counter offer. Always remember, the first one to talk loses. Remember, you have already decided you are willing to walk away from the deal, so this is a game of sorts, so play it out. If they do give you counter offer, don’t react until they call you to find out if you are going to respond to their counter. If they call you are in great shape, now you can respond by either raising your offer a little, or telling them you cannot go up in price and you are moving on. This is the critical point; let them make the next move. They will do either of three things. One, they will not do anything and the deal is dead, two they will counter you with a better lower counter then their last one, or three they will accept your offer. If you are comfortable with the new counter offer, then accept it, if you really want to play hard ball, then stick to your guns, once you have made up your mind that you can walk away, you have no pressure on you, but believe me the pressure on the seller is enormous.

 

If you get the home on your terms, then congratulations, you have successfully negotiated a great deal on a home. It all has to do with whether you are willing to walk away. Once you understand that, then you are in the drivers seat!

What my clients are saying  

5 reviews 5.0 star rating 1/21/2016 I was tired of using a large management team to manage my investment property. I felt I was always on the back burner. I was recommended to Tony from a business associate, he assured me I would be very pleased. Well that was an understatement, Tony is amazing. He's above all honest and always available for my concerns. I'm not as well versed as other investors with property management and maintenance and tenant relations, Tony has been an excellent partner and has guided me through quite a bit of needed repairs and worked far beyond what was expected to help turn my little investment into quite a prosperous investment, If what your looking for is prompt return calls, honest direction and someone very knowledgeable with general contractors and real estate laws, Tony is your man.
