Not in this market! The market has shifted, the inventory is low because homeowners are holding onto the low rates they got when they bought. Buyers are plentiful even with higher interest rates. Sellers are pricing the homes reasonably, and they don’t expect to get multiple offers for over the asking price. A lowball offer just isn’t in the cards right now and may cause you to be cut off from consideration at all.
Buyers expectations should be set to fit the market. Yes, we all want to feel like we got a good deal, but it makes no sense to waste your time and the sellers with an offer that isn’t going to be taken seriously. Use an agent with experience and knowledge of the market, someone with excellent negotiating skills. Yes, that’s us! Here at HREC we have decades of experience and will guide you to a successful transaction.
