You should plan on offering pretty close to what the list price is. Banks don't budge much from what they're asking under most circumstances. You will want a buyer's agent for this if you don't already have one because buying from a bank is no simpler than the SS process.... more
Boy oh boy! I couldn't agree more. We have a renovation project waiting to start for a new roof - and I mean completely new: rafters, trusses, decking, the whole shebang - and with all the snow and rain and cold, we have been at a standstill for a number of weeks. I am going crazy about this. We need to GET STARTED!!! aaacccckk. :-) And NO, I don't want Mother Nature to shift right over to 100' either. I LOVE SPRING, but where is it?... more
As James pointed out, a TERRIBLY low compensation situation creates COMPLICATIONS. Which is the opposite of making it easy for a buyer to purchase a home.
Two steps are added to the process. I advise my buyer I will submit their purchase offer with the provision the seller compensates me adequately. After all, they may be testing the water and trolling for a naive agent and gullible buyer. Failing to do so my buyer must make up the difference. This WILL put the seller in a difficult situation and may prove to be a more costly outcome than the result had they heeded their agents advise. I know sellers are in a very difficult situation, but it is very important for listing agents to communicate that a home not sold save no money at all!
