Price Negotiations

I love helping buyers in all of North Orange COunty, including Anaheim Hills, Villa Park, and Orange, to find the perfect property. But even moreso I love helping them find the perfect property at the perfect price ! Finding your dream home at the perfect price and under the best conditions is my ultimate goal for you as your real estate agent. Not all negotiations involve price, I know how to negotiate any and all concessions a home seller might throw our way and I guarantee to find you the best deal out there!
Real estate market data-A spend a large amount of time and effort to find all of the market data out there that will help us to make the right price offers. Being in and out of the real estate market every day I know all of the up-to-date, accurate details that will help us to make an accurate offer.I will use all of the information I collect to determine the competitive nature of the market and strategize our pricing negotiation. This data is very thorough and accurate, called a CMA. This stands for comparative market analysis which consists of both comparing the property of interest to similar ones revently sold in the market and ones on the market right now that are seen as competitors. This information helps me to accurately valuate your house of interestand see if there are any other better options to persue.
Thorough knowledge of your situation-By understanding your motivations and financial abilities as well as keeping a constant communication with you I will be able to efficiently advise you on pricing negotiations. I can help you put together a price strategy with the highest chance of success, helping you to secure that dream home of yours at the best price!
Seller motivation research – While it’s not always legally possible to determine why someone is selling, there are things I can glean from their listing and price activity that will allow me to help you to negotiate from a position of strength.

It’s not all money – There are a lot of ways to negotiate a real estate deal, and they don’t always involve money. Perhaps the seller doesn’t have a lot of ability to work with you on price, but they can make other concessions that could result in a deal. I help you to take the best approach.

It’s not over till it’s over – Many real estate price negotiations involve multiple counter offers and a lot of back–and–forth. I'm with you with each counter offer to adjust your negotiation strategy accordingly. Because I can’t know the seller’s financial limitations in many deals, some buyers are elated when they cut a major low-priced deal on a home, but then after inspections they hit a brick wall in negotiations with the seller related to repairs.  The negotiation to purchase a home isn’t over with the price on the contract, and it’s best to know that a real deal at the front end could result in less flexibility after inspections in the repairs discussion.
The thing to remember is that I'm right there with our Anaheim Hills, Brea, La Habra, Fullerton, Placentia, Yorba Linda, Buena Park, Cypress, Stanton, La Palma, Villa Park, Orange, Anaheim, Los Alamos, Westminster, Garden Grove, Seal Beach, Fountain Valley, Santa Ana, and Tustin real estate buyers throughout the negotiation process with the latest information and experienced advice.
