Here at Sound Properties, our priority is getting our clients into the home of their dreams! We believe that with the right team and some smart strategies, you too can afford that slightly out of budget dream home. This dilemma comes up often but the right broker will help negotiate a price that is right for you and your family.
Having the right broker on your side will ensure that you submit the strongest possible offer for your dream home. In fact, your agent should be your advisor when it comes to the negotiation. Do your research and find a broker that has experience in closing deals.
Your broker should also be well educated in the market that you are buying in. They should be aware of the market climate and be able to tell you if you should be ready for a bidding war in a certain neighborhood. Well educated brokers know the opposition and will be quizzing the sellers agent for as much information on the property as possible. It is in everyone's best interest to have as much knowledge of the market, the neighborhood and the sellers as possible!
If you are buying into a competitive market, try getting creative with your offers. Sometimes, its not all about money. The micro terms of the contract can make or break an offer. Example are offering a quick-close or a higher earnest money deposit. It can also be beneficial to add a personal touch to your offer by including a personal note to the seller. Buying & selling a home is an emotional process and it may go far to a seller to hear how much you love the home. These options show the seller that you are serious!
