Counter offers and New Buyer!

Working on a counter offer to the neighbor’s deal today…not sure the “middle” is reachable by these 2 parties- but I will give it my best shot! I think these negotiations have a ways to go before everyone can agree. There is sometimes a misconception when buyers make offers to For Sale By Owners…and that is that they can begin negotiations by deducting the amount of the “commission they are saving” – from the sales price. FSBO’s are no more open to this idea than paying the commission in the first place. unfortunately this impass can kill the deal in some cases. I am going to try to prevent that this time.

A new buyer that I have been working with online for a few weeks finally arrived today! Welcome to Killeen Mr. Bodensteiner! I will be putting together a list of homes that match his criteria and scheduling to get him out looking tomorrow. It would be our goal to have him contracted ASAP in light of the tax credit deadline approaching- and also considering he is staying with friends until he can move into his new home here. Thanks for the great prequalification from Cara Latham at US Bank Home Mortgage in Harker Heights!
