|We make Finding your New Home Easy
Once you've found the perfect home, How much should you offer?
The three most common questions we get asked are:
1) What do you think the seller will take for the home?
2) How much should I offer?
Every home has an listing price, fair market selling price and a sellers bottom line. The listing price is the price the home is advertised for. Fair market value is what other homes comparable to the subject home are selling for. A sellers bottom line is the minimum net proceeds at closing that the seller will accept. It is obvious that you would want to purchase the home at the sellers bottom line, leaving no money on the table. However the industry shows that most homes today are being sold at fair market value.
3) So how can you find out the sellers bottom line?

Here are some basic do's and don'ts:
1) BEWARE of the Listing Agent:
- Never submit an offer to purchase directly to the Listing Agent
- The Listing Agent Represents the Sellers best interest.
- The Listing Agent WILL NOT Disclose to you how low of an offer the Sellers will accept.
- The Listing Agent WILL NOT Negotiate on your behalf.
- The Listing Agent's job is to get the Highest Price for their Sellers.
2) Listing Agent Myth: Using the Listing Agent will get me the best deal, because I can cut out a Buyers Agent commission.
- The Seller has committed to sell their home at a fixed compensation regardless of who represents the sale.
- Not using Sterling Chase Realty to represent you as your Buyers Agent is a sure way to overpay.
3) Why should I use Sterling Chase Realty to present my offer: Negotiating Real Estate is basically the same theory as negotiating a court case.
- If you were getting divorced would you use your spouses Attorney to defend you or would you hire your own?
4) I have a friend or family member who is a Realtor and want to use them:
- Although a Realtor that is a friend or family member may have your best interest in mind, do they really posses the skills necessary to negotiate the largest financial investment you will make in your life?
5) All Realtors are equal:
- Even though all Realtors in the state of Florida are required to be licensed by the state, this does not imply that every Realtor is a Professional Negotiator.
