Every homeowner and every home buyer would like to get exactly what they want for their real estate transaction.
Remaining Objective is Key
Whether you're a buyer or seller, you will be best served by stepping back and allowing your real estate agent to take the lead in negotiating on your behalf.
Leave it to the Pros
Working with a qualified agent is important in the negotiation stage. You should always be involved in behind-the-scenes discussions. And you should expect your agent to work closely with you to establish your clear set of priorities. But once you've made your priorities clear and your bottom line terms of profits and details, you can leave the final negotiations to the pros.
