Real Estate Negotiation Tip – Brenda Leguisamo

Brenda Leguisamo here with a real estate tip of the day. Today, we’re going to talk about negotiation. As you know, real estate sales are one of the biggest either sales or investments of a person’s life. With that large sale or investment comes a lot of pressure, but it doesn’t need to be stressful as long as you know how to handle each situation with strategic advice.

For example, when negotiating a contract, the key thing to create a win-win for both parties is to understand what each party wants and also the reality of achieving each of those wants. A seller might want a specific price on a property and a buyer may want to pay or may be able to pay a specific amount on a specific property while the buyer is paying in cash or whether the buyer is financing it with a mortgage.

On the sell side, a seller may want a particular price perhaps because the seller needs to pay off a loan that they have on the home. In addition, they’ve probably made upgrades on the home that helped to increase the value of the home. Therefore, they believe from their point of view and also from what the market shows that the value of the home is the price it’s selling now.

The value of the property that’s for sale may not necessarily always be the price that the market is willing to pay. You are able to get help with a real estate agent to really dive in and analyze the market in the area to identify comparable properties to that home so that the buyer that’s going to make the offer can make the best informed offer for that property. When the seller is ready to price the property with a realtor that they hire to list the property for sale, the realtor will also help the seller to analyze the market to see the true value of the property to be able to manage the seller’s expectations. The realtor representing the buyer is also able to manage the buyer’s expectations on what the closest true value of the property is because the market already dictated that with the previous recent sales in the area comparable to that property.

That is one of the tips of the day in regards to negotiation. Understanding what each party wants and being informed with actual market data with the help of your real estate agent.

3 Ways Realtors Save Time And Money To Sell A Home In Miami Beach Florida

There’s a misunderstanding about Realtor® services being more expensive compared to when a homeowner sells their home without a Realtor® in Miami Beach Florida. This article will highlight three ways Realtors® are in the best position to sell a home in the shortest amount of time while also saving a homeowner money. In addition, below in the comments, we welcome other Realtor’s® to share best practices to help homeowner’s save both time and money.

Best Highest Price For Sale

With access to up-to-date local market data research and trends available only to licensed real estate agents, a Realtor® is in the best position to guide a seller to set the best highest price for a home to sell in the shortest amount of time. There are existing real estate websites which provide general market data which are helpful. The databases which Realtor’s® have access to provide much more detail which results in more accurate pricing capability.

More Marketing Exposure

A Realtor® is a licensed professional with access to millions of other licensed real estate professionals for more marketing exposure to help sell a home faster. For example, Realtor’s® are members of various real estate industry organizations in the state where they conduct business. In Miami, Realtor’s® are members of the Miami Association of REALTORS® with more than 40,000 members. In addition, Realtor’s® are members of the National Association of REALTORS®  with more than 1,400 local associations and 1.1 million members.

Realtors are in a position to market each home listed for sale in the multiple listing service (MLS) to hundreds of local and international real estate websites. In addition, Realtor’s have access to real estate market data which enables more targeted marketing efforts for sales results.

Prepared Negotiations for Seller

During the home selling process, there are many times when negotiations take place before, during and after an offer to buy is made and a contract is signed. Due to being active in the real estate market, consistently reviewing contracts with customers, and receiving ongoing contract training, a Realtor® is prepared for each negotiation. Also, since many Realtor’s® network with other Realtor’s and real estate industry professionals on a local, national and international level, Realtor’s® are in a better position to facilitate a win-win negotiation result with each party of the transaction involved.

When you or somone you know needs to sell a home fast and at the best highest price, please contact a Realtor® who you know or is referred to you which has achieved results serving other customers.
