Information is The Key

Gather some information about the house and the owner in advance: You should check how long this house on the market is and if the price has dropped since it has been first listed. That information could be crucial since it tells you that the owner is likely to be perceptive to a lower offer. It is clear that the house is overpriced so the owner could change his mind regarding price. It’s also a big advantage to find out something about the seller. If they are hurrying to move because of the new job or before a baby arrives, they will probably want to get the deal done.

Compare The Prices With Other Properties

Compare the prices of similar houses in the area: You should have a clue what price to offer to the owner, so search for similar houses in this neighborhood to set your price. Compare it with other properties for sale in this area. He may think that his house is worth more, but the truth is that the house is only worth what somebody is prepared to pay for it. Your offer will sound reasonable, and you will have solid facts to convince the seller to accept your lower offer. Don’t let a solicitor conduct the negotiations. Negotiating in person with the seller is a much better approach.

Practice the Way You’ll Act

Your behavior while negotiating: It is crucial how you behave while you discuss the price. Stay calm, keep focused, remain objective and unemotional and be tough. Try to convince the owner that the house needs some updating. He is the one who is more aware than you of all the things that should be changed or improved. If you wonder how much to offer to the seller, consider the price which is five to ten percent lower than the initial one. The seller had probably considered it before he offered his price. Be cool and tough; you don’t want to get yourself into financial difficulty just because you got caught up in a moment.
