Avoid the trap of mind games during the negotiation stage.
- At the end of the day, this is a business transaction, and the seller’s main motive is simply to sell their home at the best price. The negotiation stage reveals the true current market value for the property you want based on the demand. Avoid taking anything personally!
Stay calm, professional, and rational throughout the discussions to put your best foot forward. If your offer isn’t accepted, do not become too discouraged! Some markets are extremely competitive, and you have to be respectful of your budget. There will be another property you love even more, and it might make you realize why things didn’t work out with the first one.
