As a seller in the housing market, the anticipation of an offer can be very exciting as well as frustrating.
Hi, I’m Tanja Odzak, Our East Bay Home brokered by eXp Realty.
Selling your home can bring on many different emotions especially when it comes to receiving offers. Your home is often your most prized possession or greatest asset. So if you receive a lowball offer this can be a little daunting or even make you feel resentful. But don’t despair, stop and take a deep breath because although it’s a lowball offer, it is still an offer.
According to Realtor.com “A lowball offer can lead to a successful sale if the seller and their agent play their cards right”. After all, it is you as the seller who ultimately decides on whether to accept or reject the offer so the ball is in your court. Keep in mind just because a buyer starts with a low offer doesn’t mean they are trying to take advantage. There’s always room for negotiation whether it be on price or other terms such as a free rent back to allow you more time to move.
Bottom line, no seller dreams of getting a lowball offer but with an experienced agent and the right strategy you can turn a mediocre offer into a great sale!!! Reach out to me so I can help strategize your next move and sale of your home!
