Whether you’re buying a luxury home in Aspen, a ranch in Basalt, or a condo in Snowmass can be a long process. However, much of this depends on exactly how eager (or desperate) the current owner is to sell. If you find a homeowner who’s extremely eager to sell, it may be worth considering putting in a fair, but possibly lower, offer. Talk to your Aspen Realtor® about making an offer in this type of situation—he or she will be able to give you the right advice to help maximize your chances of the offer being accepted.
Look at the Asking Price
One surefire sign that the owner is looking to get out as soon as possible is when the price has been lowered one or more times. An owner looking to get paid in cash or one that is selling for below market value may also be in a hurry to sell.
Ask Why They’re Selling
In many cases, homeowners are desperate to sell not out of want, but out of necessity. A person who has recently lost their job or a couple that are getting divorced may have extra incentive to sell as quickly as possible, which could mean you can scoop up the home at a very attractive price.
