Mistakes Buyers Make When Thinking of Making An Offer —
Ignoring what the seller wants
When you’re shopping for real estate, it’s hard not to see a house as a product you’re buying.
But real estate isn’t like other business deals. You’re buying from another person who has to choose you as the buyer.
Sellers are motivated for different reasons. Some are entirely driven by money, for example, while others want to see their first home go to someone who will love it as much as they did.
“When you hire a Realtor to represent you in the purchase of a property, [they’re] gathering information about the seller’s motivation,” Hicks says.
They’ll use that information to help you build the best offer, and if you’re ignoring it, you could be hurting your chances.
