5 Negotiating Tactics That Kill Real Estate Sales

Negotiation is a subtle art in real estate, but skilled negotiators can usually find some common ground that satisfies all parties. On the other hand, using the wrong negotiation tactics can sink a deal quickly. Here are some negotiation tactics buyers (and real estate professionals) should avoid:

  1. Low-ball offers: Going far below market value when you make an offer damages your credibility as a buyer and can be insulting to the seller. The seller has a range in mind that they’ll accept, and if you’re not even approaching the low end of that range, they won’t even consider the offer.
  2. Incremental negotiations: Don’t continue to go back to the seller with small increases in your offer ($1,000 or less). The constant back-and-forth can grow tiresome and lead the seller to consider other opportunities.
  3. “Take it or leave it”: Try not to draw a line in the sand with your initial offer. The seller can get defensive and consider other offers if you immediately show that you’re unwilling to budge. Even if it’s true, don’t make a show of it.
  4. Nitpicking after inspection: Obviously if inspection reveals a major issue, it should be factored into the final sale price. But insisting on a lower price for every minor repair can put negotiations in a stalemate.
  5. Asking for more, more, more: Some buyers will request that the sellers throw in add-ons like furniture or appliances that weren’t included in the listing. Try to avoid giving the seller a reason to build up resentment and think that you’re being greedy.

San Diego Real Estate Market Report and Stats for November 2014

Thinking of buying or selling a home?.  Maybe you already own real estate and are curious what’s happening in the market?  These are the figures for San Diego and several micro San Diego real estate markets including Downtown, Pacific Beach, San Elijo Hills, and Mira Mesa you are looking for.  This is real deal information and statistics for what is happening right now.  Most other public data and “news” stories about the market follow the Case Schiller index and are already 2 months old (There is a two-month lag time in the data reported).  Old news is now news in real estate.

The best argument I have heard for why it’s a good time to buy real estate:  Mortgage interest rates are still a historical lows, home prices have reached a stable and sustainable level, and rental rates continue to climb and outpace home appreciation levels (rents are expected to climb 19% over the next couple years!).   A mortgage payment on a home will be cheaper in most cases than renting a home in San Diego.  Also, don’t forget that unlike stocks, bonds, and other investment entities and options, you get added utility from being able to live in your investment.  You gotta live somewhere right?  I’d like to see you move into your shares of Microsoft or Apple.  Maybe the iHome?  Sorry, a little real estate agent humor.
