Northeast OH Short Sale Negotiation Tip: Don't Get Insulted By Lowball Offers

Northeast OH – Some buyers will think that since your house is a short sale, then they can make any lowball offer.

Many sellers get offended over their offers and turn them away. After going thru many short sales we have actually found that lowball offers are not necessarily a bad thing. Let me explain why.

So you get the advantage of getting a good deal. Now, I am sure you are asking, “Why are short sales a bargain?”

After you accept the buyer’s offer you have to wait for your lender to approve the short sale. This process can take from thirty to ninety days.

That gives the buyers lots of time to sell themselves on the house. They drive their friends past it. They drive their parents past it.

“That is the house we are trying to buy”, they tell them. “That’s a nice house. I think you are making a great decision”, their friends and family tell them.

The short sale lender will order an appraisal of the house. They will come back and say that they will not accept a sales price much lower than the appraised value.

We tell the buyers that the short sale lender has ordered and appraisal. The appraisal came back at X, and the lender won’t allow the property to sell for less.

At that point most buyers agree to pay the price. We have seen buyers agree to pay 5-10% more than they had originally offered.

We feel that it is because they had time to “sell” themselves on the house. What do you think? Let me know by commenting below.
