The best seller is one who is highly motivated. A highly motivated seller is more likely to sell at a price that is less than his or her house is actually worth. And it matters that you find out why. Learning the reason why can help you get the price you want and help the seller get what they want: a timely sale.
When given the opportunity to meet with sellers, ask them why they are selling. The reason could be anything, such as a job change to a new location or financial problems. If you can solve their problem, whether it is cash related or time related, do so. For example, if the sellers are highly motivated because they need to move quickly, give them a fast sale - and a lower price. If you can make an offer, even a low one, that gives them cash in a short time, they are more likely to accept.
There are also some sellers that you should avoid. Not every seller is as genuinely motivated as they make themselves to be. Some possible hints:
they stall on having the home appraised or inspected
they are unable to clear up liens against their property
they do not own 100% of their property
they push back the move-out date
they do not have a replacement property or back up plan
It is impossible to find the perfect seller. But it is possible to find out which sellers are legit and which ones aren’t.
I was impressed with Margaret & Blair from the moment we met. Their office is beautiful and very unique! Their knowledge of the area was terrific. As a native of Atlanta, I was familiar with the Highlands area, but no expert. They listened to me and helped me determine what was most important in my home selection.They directed me to properties that were right for our family rather than trying to sell me something in a specific club or one of their own listings. I felt like they were working in my best interest. I recommend them to anyone exploring the area. bbjclemsonfan
Great experience. They were very helpful from showing properties through the closing. Recommend them highly to anyone interested in property. They understand what you are looking for and do not waste your time showing you things that they know will not work for you. Susan & John Wiener
