It should come as no surprise to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the greater Washington, DC, area that it is currently a seller’s market. Buyers are typically at a disadvantage when negotiating a price for a property, as sellers use demand as a way to get maximum profit.
But this doesn’t mean that buyers are helpless when it comes to finding a good deal. With the help of a skilled realtor, those looking to purchase a home can receive a fair price, sometimes even when their bid comes in lower than those of other homebuyers.
Redux Realty agent David Mount was recently able to find his client, a first-time homebuyer, a great price on a duplex in a desirable neighborhood in Arlington. David and his client were able to beat out FIVE other offers, at least one of which was $10,000 higher than his client’s offer.
By adjusting the other terms of the offer, David was able to create a bid that appealed to the seller, and at a price that benefited his client, who now has the home he desired—close to DC and within walking distance of restaurants and shopping.
