How to respond to an offer to purchase your home–even a low offer.

Selling anything is based on one critical principle - someone must make an offer to purchase it.

In this market most home purchase offers in the Brevard County, Florida real estate market are not for full asking price.  How many people pay sticker price for a car or a house?  Not very many.

Suppose a less than full price offer comes in.  How does a seller respond?  It may not even be very close to what the seller thinks they will accept.

An initial offer may not be a true indication of a buyer's interest.

But how they respond to your counteroffer will determine if they really are serious.

When you receive that offer on your home, consider it wisely because a deal closing this month that may be less than full price may still be better than an unknown deal closing in a two, three or six months.
Here are a few articles on negotiation strategies for buyers and sellers.
