Some of the homes on the market today located in Double R Ranch Blaine WA are priced well below market value. If you are looking to get a good deal on a home there are three factors that you want to find in your seller. The first factor is motivation. If a seller is not motivated to sell their home then you will see that by simply looking at how long the home has been sitting on the market. Based on the average days on market, homes that are competitively priced are going to sell before the 100 day mark. If they have not sold within 100 days that may be an indication that the sellers did not have a price adjustment strategy, or it might indicate that the sellers are simply not very motivated to sell. Contrast that with sellers that are looking to relocate and have started the actual moving process and you might find yourself a motivated seller. With any motivated seller there is room at the negotiating table and a higher chance for a successful transaction that would result in a win-win situation. Finding a motivated seller is finding a good opportunity to buy at a bargain price. If you are looking for a 3 bedroom home on a larger lot with some privacy please consider taking a tour with your local real estate agent and actually walking through some of the homes that are available in Double R Ranch Blaine WA.
Motivated sellers may be willing to 1) lower their price to help sell their home fast 2) Offer to help pay for closing costs 3) Offer other incentives to home buyers like a carpet allowance, a paint allowance or an allowance for new appliances.
