Home Selling: 5 Ways to Improve Your Negotiating Game

Home Selling NegotiationChances are slim that a home buyer will take one look at your home and make an offer that accepts your terms at face value. Unless it's an exceptionally strong seller's market, much of the buying and selling process is negotiated, which means that your negotiating style, and your real estate agent's negotiating skills, could affect the terms of the sale.

These five tips will help you improve your approach to negotiation when selling your home, so that you can form a good working relationship with the buyer and get the best price & terms.

1. Prioritize Your Expectations

Start by listing your home selling expectations and prioritizing. You have a sense for what you want from the sale, but your documented expectations should be based on:

  • the real estate market conditions in your area
  • the location & condition of your home
  • how quickly you need to sell
  • the impression buyers will have of your home compared to others

Talk to your real estate agent about the market in your city and specifically your neighborhood. Be up-front about your needs, so that your agent can help you price the home to meet them. You get the final decision on accepting offers, rejecting them or making counter-offers, but your agent will also make recommendations. Ask your agent about preferred methods for negotiation, and follow them.

2. Keep a Businesslike Perspective

For buyers, this is purely a business decision. In order to get the best deal, you must do...

The All-Important Connection Between Credit & Your Mortgage

Mortgages and CreditThe prospect of becoming a homeowner seems to be fraught with almost as many questions as it is with excitement. And for most, before getting the keys, they must jump the biggest hurdle: Getting a Mortgage.

Most home buyers know that they need "good" credit in order to qualify for a mortgage, and that they should be pre-approved before looking at homes. What exactly does the term "good credit" mean these days - especially since the housing crisis? How do the changes in lending pertain to your ability to get a mortgage? The primer below can help you sort out the questions you might have. 

Note, that we are not mortgage brokers. For information & guidance specific to your needs, always be sure to consult with a licensed mortgage professional before starting the house hunt.

Today, Your Credit is More Important Than Ever

While the housing market has clearly recovered in most locations, the days of "easy credit" as a means of obtaining a mortgage are over. In addition to being able to show that you have a secure financial foundation from which to afford a home, your mortgage company is going to dig much deeper than in years past, by not only considering your credit scores, but also most aspects of your credit history.

Recent credit history isn't the...

What a San Diego Buyer Needs to Know About Low Inventory

Selling Your San Diego Home? Check Out Our Guaranteed Sold Program

Inventory in our market right now is very tight. There are not many homes for sale and by the time you find a home you like, there are probably a lot of other buyers interested in it already. That’s because almost every buyer in the market is simply chasing down the next house that hits Zillow, Redfin, or Trulia. You’re competing with everyone else because you are looking at the same thing everyone else is. You’re just part of the mob.

In this environment, if you’re a buyer and you want to win, you need to align yourself with a buyer specialist who can get you out ahead of a property before it’s on the market. Give the buyer specialist your parameters, and they should be able to run a full needs analysis. A good buyer specialist will then go and chase that property down, whether it’s on the market already or not.

You don’t want to work with a real estate agent who is trying to keep 10 plates spinning. Typical real estate agents handle buyers, listing appointments, marketing, and hundreds of other little details that detract their attention from your home search.

A buyer specialist only...
