Avoid Showing How Much You Love “The Home”
When you find “The Home”, first and foremost, never show anyone how much you love the home when you’re in or near the property. With today’s technology, homes often have cameras and listening devices that can be used against you in negotiations. Don’t lead on that it’s the home you’ve always dreamed of or even if it’s a great deal. Avoid expressing your excitement. If the seller or their agent knows how much you love the home, they can use this information to their advantage, potentially raising the asking price or not paying for all or some of your closing costs. You could miss out on getting expensive repairs completed by the seller before closing. Keep it super low-key.
Avoid Commenting On The Home
Secondly, it’s important to avoid commenting on the home. Whether you have a positive or negative comment, be mindful when you’re in the home or in the presence of the seller or their agent. Negative comments about the home, decor, or even furniture could insult the homeowner, making negotiations difficult should you make an offer. You just never know what information could be used against you in negotiations. Keep all comments about the home to yourself, and only discuss them with your agent in private.
Discuss Your Offer Only In Private
Finally, it’s crucial to discuss your offer in private with your agent. The seller and their agent should not know your budget or your bottom line. This information can be used against you in negotiations. Remember to keep your cards close to your chest and only reveal what’s needed in order to secure the best deal possible.
In conclusion, when it comes to finding “The One,” these three things should be avoided at all costs when you find “The Home”. Following these 3 simple directions will save you a lot of frustration. You will be ensured that your thoughts and plans are kept private.
