You found your dream home; it’s got everything you wanted. You’re pre-approved. Now it’s time to make an offer.
Everyone wants to get a good deal, but you need to understand the local market. The Bedford, Lynchburg, Roanoke market doesn’t have the swings in home values other parts of the nation experiences. While it’s tempting to make a low ball offer, but typically it doesn’t help in negotiation, having a REALTOR® who knows the market makes a difference.
You’re REALTOR ® will know what else sold on the street and how this home compares to what is currently on the market and what has sold during the past year.
Sometimes negotiations go back and forth a few times. Don’t get emotional, think logically and don’t lose sight of what you want.
