What are some inside tips to close a deal if the seller won't budge on price?
Negotiating is an important part of many home sales. If you have found the home you want, but the price isn't just right, both you and the seller may have to adjust your expectations to close the sale and get you in the door.
- Keep searching for common ground
If the seller won't budge on the price, perhaps there are other items that can be negotiated, such as closing fees or loan discount points to bring the cost of the home within reach. Or perhaps the seller will add the washer and dryer, drapes or other amenities not originally included in the sale. The key is to keep talking until you find common ground.
