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.

What Does “As-Is” Mean In Real Estate

 

What does “as-is” mean in real estate and should you be concerned as a buyer? I cannot think of very few other terms in real estate that create as much confusion and anxiety with home buyers. Just to be clear, we are not talking “may the buyer beware” or “don’t buy a lemon”.  Save that for the used car lot.    When a San Diego property is being marketed for sale with an “as-is” provision, the only thing this means is the seller is literally selling the property as-is. The seller must still disclose as material facts and defects that are known.  As-is does not give a home seller a “free pass”.  As a home buyer, you still conduct your due diligence including a physical inspection of the property during the escrow period. In the event any issues arise, big or small, the seller will not pay to repair any short comings the property may contain.what is an as-is sale san diego real estate

For example: You make an offer to purchase a home in La Jolla. The seller accepts your offer but clearly discloses to you that they are selling the property “as-is” and will not be making any repairs based on any inspection reports. You proceed into escrow and conduct a physical inspection. Among simple cosmetic items, your home inspector determines the roof is worn and needs major repairs or complete replacement. In a normal transaction, you request the seller makes all repairs or concedes a credit to you at close of escrow. In an “as-is” transaction, your option as a buyer is to either accept the repair work and pay for all said work or to simply walk away from the purchase. The option to walk away is covered under normal conditions by your contingencies during your escrow period.

Search MLS for San Diego Real Estate for Sale

Where do we see “as-is” sales? Most bank owned sales and foreclosures are sold as-is. In addition, many short sales are sold as-is. Some trust and estate sales may be sold “as-is”. Finally, some private sales may be as-is. As-is sales can restrict your buyer pool as a seller so in most cases, I do not recommend any sellers sell as-is.

As-is sales are nothing to be afraid of but be prepared to take on at least some cosmetic items. Every house will have some issues. In the event your home inspector finds no issues, find a new inspector! Be prepared though. If the inspection reveals a major item, you must decide how badly you want the property, your purchase price relative to repair cost, and the total cost of repairs required.
