Buying a Home: Effective Tips for Price Negotiation - Colorado Real Estate

  1. 1. Buying a Home: Effective Tips for Price Negotiation<br />
  2. 2. Looking for the perfect home is only one part of the home buying process. <br />The next step, which is even more important, is negotiating the price.<br />
  3. 3. Even if you have found your dream home, if you are not able to negotiate it to reach a price that would be within your budget, all your efforts would be futile.<br />Here are some tips on how to negotiate the price of the house. <br />
  4. 4. The most important aspect for negotiation is the overall price of the home. <br />To determine how much a home costs, it would be a good idea to enlist the help of a professional appraiser. <br />He or she will give you an accurate estimate of how much the house costs, considering the trends in the market.<br />
  5. 5. It is also possible to ask for the common asking price, but only use this as last resort or if you don’t have the service of an appraiser. <br />
  6. 6. You may also inquire of the prices set by the other houses in the same location that also have similar features to the one you’re eyeing. <br />
  7. 7. Be sure to consider not only the size, but the design and maintenance level, as well. Moreover, you can take a look at the median price in that particular market you’re planning to buy from.<br />For example, in Colorado, Fort Collins real estate’s median price is $251,487.<br />
  8. 8. For Denver, Colorado real estate, it’s around $282,954. <br />The overall home price will be the basis for negotiation, as this is what you’d negotiate to lower down. In addition to this, you can also negotiate based on other terms or contingencies. <br />
  9. 9. To ensure better chances of having your offer accepted, establish friendly relations with the seller. <br />You can’t expect the seller to give in to your offer if you’re aloof or disrespectful. <br />
  10. 10. Show your sincerity in the form of a letter that contains the following details: names, ages, and relationships of the people who will occupy the house, brief history of previous homes, occupation and educational background, specific reasons why you love the house and why you will be the perfect owner. <br />
  11. 11. When negotiating the price, be sure to make the person feel that you’re sincere about taking care of the home. <br />
  12. 12. Most sellers feel attached to the home they are selling and they wouldn’t want to give it away just to anybody unless they can be perfectly sure that the person will take care of the house. <br />
  13. 13. Negotiating is not that easy.<br />It entailscleverness, resourcefulness, and creativity. <br />Before you engage in any negotiation process, assess your feelings for the house.<br />See to it that you don’t let your emotional side get the better of you, or else you will end up paying more than you should. <br />
  14. 14. If you feel you’re not up to this or that you’re not confident about your negotiation skills, at least for now, consider hiring a professional and reputable real estate agent for this purpose. <br />
