Negotiating a Property Sale

Hi folks,

Most vendors and purchasers expect that in the sales process, the price will be negotiated to take into account the different expectations of the two parties. Few realise that attributes other than money can also be subject to the negotiation process for a mutually beneficial result.

On occasion a vendor may not need to negotiate as much price wise, if the other party has needs that can be accommodated and have value in dollar terms.

Some purchasers may be buying now just so they can secure a property for an anticipated move, they may not need to occupy in the normal settlement time frame, so a delayed settlement may suit their pocket while giving them the security of a home when they need it and perhaps while they have the time to do the work associated with making the purchase.

Vendors also need security, and may prefer to know their home sale is a done deal before embarking on their next project. For many, the security of a ‘sold’ home means they know exactly what they can afford to pay for the property they will move to next, and renting from purchasers until they need the property themselves is peace of mind and time to research their next purchase.

If you are thinking of selling your home, would like an appraisal, or want more information on the Upper Hutt property market please call me on the numbers below or contact me via email alternately fill in your details here on my website.

Kind regards,
Steve Slicker
