It has been my experience that most sellers will participate in a seller concession. It primarily depends on how you 'package' it in the offer. The seller is most concerned with what their bottom line is (after the seller concession is paid). If the offer is attractive enough, there is usually little reason for the seller not to participate in a seller concession. If you'd like to talk more, please contact me anytime 508-331-0965. I specialize in counseling first-time home buyers in the Plymouth/Carver area.
