  • Questions that Salt Lake Home Buyers always Ask (#2)

    Posted on October 11th, 2010 admin No comments

    I know that the listing didn’t include any appliances, but let’s go ahead and ask them to throw in the washer and dryer.   They can always say no.

    Sometimes this is a good strategy, especially if you are offering at or near the asking price.  But you want to stay focused on the goal of acquiring the home for the best price.  You don’t want to give the seller more reasons to counter-offer.  Because while they are counter-offering your request for the 10 year old Maytag, they will probably go ahead and counter your offering price as well.
    Write a clean offer that can be accepted on the first draft.
    You can go back after the offer is accepted and offer to buy the appliances separately for a yard sale price.
    Remember that you are buying real estate not used appliances.
