  3. 3. Commission Negotiation<br />What if the Seller wants to pay you a lower commission? <br />ask questions to understand why<br />if you don’t want to accept that lower fee you have to try to show them why it’s not in their best interest to pay you a lower fee<br />Focus on the Seller’s needs:<br />Don’t Say: I spend a lot of money on advertising so I need to charge a higher fee to pay for that advertising.<br />Say: The extra advertising and marketing we do helps us average a 2% higher sales price for you in half the normal time.<br />Say: I know you can get a lower fee elsewhere but what have you really saved if you get a 1% lower fee and a $20,000 lower price for your home because the other agent isn’t a trained negotiator?<br />
  4. 4. Trust<br />Most important strategy in any negotiation<br />Buyers and sellers know that the other party has interests that are in conflict with theirs<br />Establish common ground:<br />Communicate that they have a common hobby, the same type of job, etc<br />Present evidence that your clients are qualified to buy the property<br />Never delay your counteroffers.

The buyers took extra time to sit down and talk, and formed a strong bond. <br />Holy Ground - The sellers had a small grave for their dog on the property, which they were very sensitive about. The buyers realized this, and sent word that they would leave it in place. <br />For the Birds - The sellers had numerous bird feeders on the property. The buyers keyed in on this, and offered to continue feeding the birds.<br />
  9. 9. Discuss This…<br />Get better negotiating power by discussing these items before sending the offer:<br />How is the market in general? How are other actives and recent sales priced? <br />How long has the home been on the market? Have there been price changes?<br />Did the house sell recently? What was the price?<br />Is there a time deadline that must be met? Would a pre or post lease be desirable?<br />What is the appraisal district value? The taxes?

If the sellers are presented with an offer of $149,000 on their $150,000 house and they counter at $150,000, they are gambling $149,000 to gain $1,000.<br />
