Low Ball offers on Brentwood Homes

brentwood real estateRecently I was eavesdropping on a group of realtors at my office talking about lowball offers. There was a general consensus that lowball offers are driving down real Brentwood Home prices and insulting sellers all over middle Tennessee. Many of these agents said that they wouldn't even respond to low offers. Is that representing your client's best interest? Starting low does not mean that you cannot find a suitable ending point.

As a buyer's agent in Brentwood and Franklin,TN, I am hired to get the very best deal that I can for my client. It is not supposed to easy, or even comfortable, all of the time. If your Brentwood home is priced above fair market value, warn your clients not to get insulted by offers that are 8 -10% below true market value. Also let them know that all of those upgrades and that beautiful landscaping are what brought us to your home first, it doesn't mean that they will get a 100% return on their "investment." Prepare them that they will be asked for closing costs and prepaids.

If you come as a buyer's agent to one of my listings, please don't lowball me. Just kidding, present any offer. My selling clients are prepared for a tough negotiation, are yours?
