If you “really” want the home, make a “reasonable” offer. We work with our buyers to present an offer – THEY – feel good about. Some low ball offers are getting the job done. Some aren’t.
You have to ask yourself, “will I feel bad if I don’t get this house?” If the answer is no, then put in an offer you would feel is a steal and see what happens. If the answer is yes, put in an offer you and your realtor think is reasonable.
We will work with you to understand you objectives and analyze the market to determine – as best we can – a price range for the home you want to buy or sell.
