Julie Nesbitt's Conventions For Detached Home Buyers Negotiating A Dream Home Like 413 & 415 Clifford Ave In Alexandria, Virginia

Oftentimes, here's the plan: the offer is perfect, you don’t need to haggle, and and you can ponder your choices with your new home.

By all means, a few owners accept the first offer they receive, and in Alexandria in consideration of various rationale. But, real estate sellers are also known to reject offers because of a variety of reasons. Or make counteroffers. A counteroffer is possible if your offer contains conditions, or when you’re up against multiple competing offers. If the seller counters, it's now the buyer's turn to either accept, continue negotiations or move on to the next home in Alexandria, Virginia.

I will be your guide to real estate negotiations in Alexandria, if you want to squabble with the seller. By this I mean that I will use my experience and negotiating ability as we craft a series of offers and counter-offers to help get you the dream deal on the home you actually want. I have done this many times, and I can do it for you. But, you'll be right there with me. . I’ll help you understand the negotiating conventions we will deploy. Those rules of thumb will vary depending upon the property but in Alexandria, Virginia here are some basics we usually implement. In 22305 in the City of Alexandria, let's reflect on three rules of thumb every shopper should see from the outset:
  1. Just walk away After lengthy negotiations, nobody wants to just walk away. But it’s important to keep in mind that your seller – and your gut – know what’s best for you when it comes to negotiating. If you have already made trade-offs and don’t want to make any more, and the seller won’t budge, you would be best to just walk away. Walking away from the negotiations that you’ve worked so long and hard on can be very difficult, but your agent can help you understand that there is a better deal out there. If your gut is telling you not to settle – just walk away. After your feelings of frustration pass, you’ll realize that you know how to negotiate and how to take control of the process, whether it means walking away from the next one also, or accepting the offer.
  2. Increase Your Earnest Money Deposit

    Your earnest money deposit, or EMD, is the amount of money you put down to prove to the seller you want to buy the house. Putting down more money shows the seller that you’re more serious about the sale. The typical amount of an EMD is 1% to 3% of the sales price of the home. Offering 3% to 4% may be what it takes to persuade the seller to side with you.
  3. It is best to respond within 24 hours when you receive a counteroffer, so you will be preventing another client from making a better offer than you. Be sure to not wait too long because if the seller senses any hesitance on your end, he/she may withdraw the counteroffer without you responding to it.
