  • Having unrealistic expectations – Balancing market realities with the price point that they can afford is important.
  • Hesitating – There is often a short window to pull the trigger when buyers come across “the one,” especially if it has just hit the market.
  • Making low-ball offers -Buyers risk alienating the seller, leaving the door open for other offers and, perhaps, losing out on what they want.
  • Being inflexible – The ability to adapt and function from a position of give-and-take is a must.

Such clients  were able to close on exactly what they were searching for without compromise. ….and $50,000 below asking price.
