If you’re like most people, you haven’t bought or sold a great number of homes—but you do know at least a little about both processes.
But is your knowledge up-to-date?
It might not be, particularly if it’s been a while since the last time you participated in a real estate transaction. Today’s buyers and sellers are worlds away from where they were just 10 years ago, and as a result, the process has evolved significantly.
Sellers Are Often Buyers at the Same Time
Many people today are buying homes while selling their old ones—and that can cause a domino effect if something, somewhere in the chain, breaks down.
This puts some additional pressure on everyone involved, too, because as soon as a sale goes through, it’s on to another transaction. Naturally, everyone wants to take advantage of low interest rates and great home values, and that means sellers want the transaction to go over without a hitch… just as buyers do.
Negotiation is “In”
Decades ago, you didn’t really negotiate. The price of a home was the price of a home—and you either paid it or you looked for a different home.
But negotiation is definitely the way to go; many people are willing to make what feel like minor concessions if they’ll mean the world to you. This is true on both ends of the deal, so it’s always a good idea to talk to your Aspen Realtor to see what he or she suggests when you really want a transaction to work in your favor.
