Buying in a Shifting Market - While everything is negotiable it may be a poor strategy.

Florida home prices, like most other areas of the U.S., are beginning to creep upward.  And while there is not an abundance of homes on the market in Brevard County, Florida there is sufficient inventory to offer most buyers several choices.

But, in some areas of Brevard County, the choices are more limited

For example, the two most popular 55+ communities in Viera are Heritage Isle and Grand Isle.  In these 55+ communities there are only 22 single family homes for sale (19 in Heritage Isle, 3 in Grand Isle).  The same holds true for many of the more popular subdivisions in central Brevard County. 

If you are a buyer in an area where, after much looking and waiting, you have found "the house," consider your negotiation strategy.  While everything is negotiable it may be a poor strategy.

Here is a selection of previous posts about negotiation strategies.   Just click on the title and the post will open in another window.
