Weekly REPORT  July 23– July 29   

Negotiations normally take time and patience. But what happens when they stall? Sometimes the parties simply cannot get together and it may be appropriate just to step away from the table. However, negotiations can also fail when people get caught up in emotions or details. They can lose track of why they originally wanted to buy or sell. The professional realtor can help re-start negotiations by reminding the parties of what brought them to the market in the first place. Once the parties re-focus on their goals, they can often find ways to move the process forward.

                                Kiosk, Trail Bay Mall Weekly REPORT  July 9– July 15   

Sellers usually don’t expect to get full price. But what about low-ball offers? Many sellers become offended and won’t even counter-offer. Professional realtors know that the buyer who makes an offer – even if it’s low - is better than the one who just looks and moves on. We know buyers may start low because they’re afraid of having their first offer accepted. They want to know they’ve negotiated well. We have seen this a time or two before. We know that, with some patience and experience, low ball offers can often be coaxed up to become acceptable offers.

Weekly REPORT  July 16– July 22   

How should you negotiate an offer that comes in soon after you’re listed? Some sellers worry they’re underpriced – they won’t counter-offer, or they want to raise the price. Your professional realtor prepared an evaluation. Rely on it. Also, in any market there are buyers who can’t find what they’re looking for. They’re highly motivated and act quickly on new listings. A professional realtor knows this, and knows you should negotiate these first offers carefully. They’re likely to be your best.

                                Kiosk, Trail Bay Mall Weekly REPORT  July 2 – 8     

Last week we listed "have a goal" as one of the main attributes of a good negotiator. What does that mean? When you enter a real estate negotiation, you should know 2 things ahead of time: the true market value of the property you’re trying to buy or sell, and the price you're willing to go. A good negotiator knows this information ahead of time keeps it in mind during the offer/counter-offer process. This provides a "road map", which keeps the negotiations purposeful and on track.

One of the most important skills a Realtor can provide is negotiation. After all, most of us buy or sell a home only a few times in our lives. With what's at stake we need help. The Professional Realtor knows negotiations are much more than just winning or losing. The Professional Realtor should: 1. Have a goal in mind; 2. Know the market; 3. Stay calm and patient; 4. Be a good listener; 5. Identify common grounds; 6. Expedite the process; 7. Communicate effectively; 8. Stay objective and not take it personally.
