The first step in negotiating a home purchase is doing prior research. This includes finding out the price at which homes are sold in the neighborhood of your choice. Once you have discovered the range of prices, you can proceed to negotiate for the home of your choice which is likely to fall between the ranges of cost for all the other homes in the neighborhood.
It is also important to find out how long the house has been listed for. A longer period means more urgency on the seller’s part, which means you could negotiate for a lower price. But also know when to walk away and when to take a stand on an offer. Typically, the more desperate the seller is, the better your chances of lowering the list price.
Keep in mind that in Georgia demand outpaces supply by far and even the 20,449 new homes in Atlanta alone are not enough to satisfy the massive demand.
