Maine Real Estate For Sale !


Hemming, Hawing, Beating Around The Bush | Cheapest Purchase Price.

How low will she go and we're not talking getting under the limbo pole but the selling price of property, real estate.

A listing that has the heart throbbing harder. Causing bells and whistles, sirens to go off. Creating a feeling of don't let it get away. Keep the ball in motion for a bottom line. But not wanting to pay one red cent more than the Maine home buyer absolutely has to say good bye to today. To part with to make it a home sweet home situation. All their own.pinball machine photo

Wiggle it, just a little bit.

Shake it don't break it. How much wiggle room and there is no such thing as standard for the industry.

It's a case by case depends on lots of variables in the real estate pinball situation.

Bouncing numbers back and forth from buyer to seller.

And vice versa. Keeping that round silver polished ball in motion, in the game. To score big.

Until, had enough. Bordering on petty larceny.

Bad tastes in each of the mouths developing. Getting involved, sucked into in the drawn out battle of the negotiations. Things becoming personal, dark cloud overhead ugly. Down videos for real estate logoand dirty. Rather contentious, tedious. Flipping offers, counter offers back and forth. Can be like the boulder slowly shouldered up the hill with the heave ho of Atlas.

Then rut rho.

Loosing ground quickly. Starts to go the other way. In a hurry and picking up rolling stone steam, speed. Watch out below. In the tug of war on nibbling of the property listing price. On what every seller wants. That the real estate property listing owner will bend to, cave in on for the actual price tag figure.

After the smoke settles. Everyone waves the white flag. Leaves the field bloodied, bone tired, worn out. Often frustrated. With or without a contract that holds together until an actual real estate closing.

How much less would the property owner take the milion dollar question.

Getting to the lowered, discounted property price. If there is one. Which is not always the case and often in small rural property markets like Maine, no budging off the figure advertised. Where the price is the price. Take it or leave it. No horsetrading on the house swapping Chummy, Mister Man.

Good morning Andy. I have to address the price question all the time, as I flip a lot of property. Here is the difference, I am not attached to the property or the price, if it needs adjusting, I do it quickly.

Setting the correct price is the key.  That way there is not a lot of negotiating Andrew.

Joe ... Good thinking.

Conrad ... Target, the bull's eye to aim and hit.

Hi Andy: No meeting of the minds, no deal. If nobody wants to give in and out a little or more- it will be a stalemate. NEXT....

Hi Andy, no matter how much a buying frenzy we have, it still has to appraise out. Some people think their home is the best and worth more than it really is. Other times the Realtor "buys" the listing to win over the client.

In the end a home is only worth what the market will dictate.

Maria ... Keep it simple, no deal, no dice. No closing. You have to prepare buyers that the price can be the price, no horse trading. Does not make the seller a kook. Makes it easier in some cases and the fact the buyer can only afford half the price is not the reason to lop that price in half and go to your knees to give it away.

Noah ... Appraiser low, maybe flawed and bank will allow another the seller pays for the second time around. In the rolling the real estate dice. Come on snake eyes. Lucky seven.

Everyone has a different threshold for negotiations.  Some people just love it and keep on going.  Others quit after one round.  I have been surprised at how low some sellers will go when the buyer keeps on trying.
