Did you know there are more than 10 ways to use influence & psychological triggers when negotiating a home offer to purchase to get a better deal? I’m not kidding, things like social proof, reciprocity, authority, scarcity, anticipation, stories, liking and the list could go on, can be used to negotiate a better deal on a home. Today we are only going to focus on the “the reason why.” Which in my opinion, is one of the best triggers to use when negotiating a seller down in price.
There is a quick video below on how this applies, with a real life study and then an example of how you can use this in real estate. When you’re watching the video make sure you pay special attention to the real estate example, because you need to make absolutely sure the SELLER hears the reason why your offer is coming in lower than the list price.
So, you’ve watched the video now what? Well if you aren’t working with us at the Strategic Real Estate Team contact us to find out how you can put us to work for you today! Otherwise, if you’re going to work with a different company or agent make sure at an absolute minimum you send a cover letter with your offer to purchase giving your “reason why” the offer is coming in at where it is.
If you’re looking to get a better real estate deal make sure you start using the reason why today!
Remember when you think real estate, think Strategic!
This is one of the most important posts I’ve made in awhile folks. I just sat down and talked with Jason Guttenburg of Liberty Mutual. We sat and talked quite a bit about what most first time home buyers need to know and when you need to start working on getting your insurance in place when you’re looking to buy a home.
It’s important to watch this video, I’ve actually seen people not close on their new home because they waited too long to get their homeowners insurance in place.
If you’d like to get in touch with Jason his contact info is:
608-442-9191 or email him at Jason.Guttenberg@LibertyMutual.com
If you didn’t want to take the time to watch the video, the #1 thing you need to know is: get your homeowners insurance in place rigth after you get your offer accepted, there is no benefit in waiting…only bad things can happen if you wait too long.
If you have any questions for me, you can contact me at email@example.com or give me a call at 608-576-0044.
p.s. I almost forgot, but Jason has some AMAZING discounts to offer you, especially if you graduated from the UW system, I know, because I personally have insurance with Jason, and would highly recommend you give him a call…even if you’re not looking for homeowners insurance, they offer some of the most competitive car rates I’ve ever seen.
Remember when you think real estate…Think Strategic!
We’ve been getting a lot of questions lately from our BUYERS on how exactly it is we get paid. So, we decided to make a quick video for you to lay out the entire process and show you how we get paid, and more importantly, how you can get us to work for you, FOR FREE, when you’re looking to buy a home.
Just watch the video below and it should give a really good idea of how agents get paid.
In the video you will learn exactly how agents get paid, and how we will GURANTEE you that you will not have to pay us a commission and we’ll even put it in writing! We will work our fingers to the bone to make sure you get the best possible deal on the home of your dreams.
If you have any questions or would like to find out how you can put us to work for you contact tj at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also feel free to leave a comment below and let us know what you think about the video. If there is anything we left out, or any other type of video you would like to see us make, let us know.
When you think real estate, think Strategic!
- How much income you bring in per year
- How much debt you have per month (this includes any debt, credit cards, student loans, car loans etc…)
Without a doubt once you have your offer accepted and have removed all the sale contingencies, the #1 question I get is…”what exactly happens on the day of closing” So, I put this quick little video together for you, where I speak with Amy Clark of Knight Barry Title. Just watch the video, it’s real quick and will go over what you need to bring on closing day and what exactly to expect.
OK, so there you have it, a nice quick run down of what happens on closing day. I know we made it sound pretty simple and easy and it should be. Just make sure you are ready to sign a whole lot of paperwork if you are a buyer and getting a loan. As always if you ever have any questions about the process or would like to know more contact me (TJ) at email@example.com or call 608-576-0044.
