Timing is everything and these buyers had sold their home in May taking advantage of the super hot market before it shifted.
They moved to temporary housing while shopping for their next home. This gave them the edge in negotiations because they were in the position of power.
We found this house was listed for sale by owner and I think that worked in our favor because they didn't have the same exposure as working with an agent.
We were able to get a little bit off on the list price, as well as some expensive items taken care of during inspection. And, they were able to help their friend get his house ready for sale too. Stay tuned for that story...
Just because the real estate market is tough for buyers - doesn't mean it's impossible. We have a lot of resources available for buyers that will help you navigate this market successfully.
