Posted on April 1, 2016

iStock Sold-webWhen you are purchasing real estate in Destin, Florida, contract and price negotiations are the keys to a successful transaction. As always, the goal should be to find the right buyer at the right price. Following these negotiating tips will help make sure you get just that… Well, that and hiring a real estate broker.

1. Be quick to respond. Delayed responses leave time for another buyer to step in and create a bidding war.

2. Get help from your broker. Use a real estate agent’s knowledge to your advantage. They can provide information about contract wording and potential pitfalls.

3. Work with a loan officer early. Sometimes buyers inch up in price during their house hunt. It is important to keep in touch with your loan officer throughout the search to avoid this pricing pitfall.
