Maybe it’s MORE HOUSE than Buyers Really THINK THEY NEED

What I say to  my sellers  is,  “Maybe it’s more house than what the buyers really think they  need”.   A low offer is not a personal affront to the perceived value of the home… It’s often a buyer stretching their dreams beyond their budget.

In this market, especially it seems in Miami, some home buyers are making low offers… hoping to strike gold.   Often they miss out on the really good buys because they don’t recognize what they’ve stumbled across.

Couple in front of houseIf you (as the seller) get an offer,  take it for what it is.  Plain and simple:  It’s  a knock at the door.  All an offer says is “I’m interested in your house… Let’s talk.” 

Some offers are workable.  Others aren’t.  You will know soon enough.

Whether you are the buyer or the  seller, arm yourself with  a clear understanding as to what’s out there.  Know what’s for sale, and what has recently sold  in your  immediate area … comparable in size, age, amenities, finishes, and workmanship.  That will make the negotiation process a whole lot smoother… and it will give you the ammunition you need to take an offer, and turn it into a contract.   Whether you’re buying or selling, please give me a call at 305-793-1365 or contact me here.  I am more than happy to help with any and all of your real estate needs!
