4 Things Sellers Should Never Say When Closing a Home Sale in Northwest Valley
1. Our house is in great/perfect/mint condition
Be careful when making definitive statements. Your house is probably perfect to you, but it’s most likely not in perfect or mint condition. No home is in perfect condition, not even a brand new one. There will always be something that can be improved, replaced or repaired.
2. You are our second/tenth/thirtieth showing
Of all the things you could say to a potential buyer in closing a home sale in the Northwest Valley, this is the one most open to interpretation and the buyer will take it to mean whatever he or she wants it to mean.
Here’s an example of how this simple statement can be misinterpreted. If you say that you have only had a few showings, a potential buyer may think that means that there is something wrong with the house or maybe that it’s overpriced. On the other hand, if you say that you’ve had a ton of showings, a potential buyer may feel that there will be a bidding war and not even make an offer.
3. Sure, we can negotiate on price
While you will want to be reasonable and consider all offers, don’t be too eager to give anything up. You may find that your willingness to be flexible here can quickly get out of hand. A good agent will exploit this, and you may find yourself giving up things before you even realize what happened. Price is only one negotiating point. You still need to get through the home inspection and negotiate terms as well.
It’s best to leave showings and price negotiations to your agent. After all, that’s why you hired them, isn’t it? And, it’s best to not be alone with a potential buyer so you can avoid these types of questions altogether. If you must be present, simply tell any potential buyers, “You’ll need to speak to my real estate agent on that.”
4. I won’t take less than $xxx,xxx for home
Being too rigid is not beneficial and could lose you buyers or keep your house on the market much longer. Having some figure in mind and refusing to bend on that can be detrimental. If you let it be known that you are not willing to negotiate on the price, you can bet that will deter many if not all buyers.
It’s important to be careful to avoid these four things you should never say in closing a home sale in the Northwest Valley. But you also need to say the right things to close a sale, and that’s where your agent comes in.
