Inspect First, List Later
Having an inspection done before potential buyers see your home can be extremely beneficial to get your asking price without any haggle. An inspection will usually cost less than $400 and can tell you everything in your house that should be fixed.
Consider Throwing in Extras
Let’s say someone had toured your home , commenting on how nicely everything is set-up. You are pretty certain this person is interested, however, they seem to be on the fence. You could offer to throw in furniture, (or certain pieces) in with the house!
Don’t Be Emotional
Before you start getting offers in the door, you will want to set your limits. Set the absolute lowest price you will accept for the house. Do not go under that price no matter what the situation.
Facilitate a Bidding War
If you are fairly confident your house will receive many offers, you might choose to let buyers know you will be “reviewing all bids.
Learn About The Buyer
To help you better negotiate with a buyer, take some time to learn about them. What situation are they in? Do they need to move right away? Are they financially able to pay full price? What is their motivation for wanting to move?
When it comes to selling your house, you can always expect for there to be some haggling. If you are prepared and keep yourself one step ahead, you will be more likely to get your listing price!
