Maine Real Estate For Sale !


What Would You Take, Have To Have For The Property Listing Today?

What a property listing can be bought for, what the owner of the Maine real estate would have to have to part with the place?

Survey says... (DING DING DING) depends on lots of variables. Personal ones. The number hurdles and getting to a bottom line. The one typed in on the last space in the lower right of the two page HUD-1 settlement statement.maine lake sunset photo

Timing is everything in life. Real estate list, market, sell (repeat) is not immune, independent, isolated from just sheer timing.

Of when the offer comes in and gets mixed up with everything else happening to the owners.

In their life and plans for the future.

Hopes, dreams, set backs and road blocks from the past. All stirred into the cauldron  too. To create a gut feeling, deep inside on what has to happen and when. Is this the right time to sell?

Timing in life no different, so important in all real estate matters.

The nasty divorce, long illness then estate sale that has to happen quickly because of mounting bills. Just battle fatigue because of the ordeal going on and on. Can mean the time is right for closure. Was not six months ago. But today. A chance to put this all behind us.maine canoe paddlers photo

Bitter about the offer on the table. But still hammering out some common ground.

A true compromise is where neither party is so hand stand happy.

Both muttering each had to make too many concessions to hammer a deal together.

But spotlight the approach to get the seller to "wiggle it just a little bit".

That attitude, tone, time allowed for a response, and the easy does it, take your time presentation on an offer.

Dished out, served up with all the devil in the details, contingencies.

Laddeled up  to chew on, consider.

Placed on the same table for all to digest. All play in to the final result.

Of what is everyone going to do in the chance to sell a property that comes along with a number the seller wishes was higher.

That maybe the buyer thinks is well above the top dollar he really wants to lay out. What the voice in his head, comfort level wants it to really be.

The bottom line, not a red dime higher than absolute lowest price the seller would accept.  You can not Google it, arrive at what that magic number is without investigation, communication, study of the elements that go into the decision making. To get lots of signatures, everyone to sign on the dotted lines.

It is all about timing.  Sellers will sometimes reach a point in negotiating that they never thought possible, due to "timing". Same with buyers.  Every home has a price, and that price changes......

Andy, when sellers have to sell, are motivated and are moving on is the best time...I know it is the same in ME real estate too!

Andrew this is such a great post, Motivation is always the key as well as timing....on a side note do you know anyone who is interested in selling a "lobster farm"? I have a client who has been trying to buy one since last year...Endre

Good morning Andy. I have always enjoyed the negotiation dance. The process can be quick, but just as good when it is lengthy. Great post!

Endre... a lobster boat, fishing license and sea legs... your client is in business. Ship shape.

Joe ... You got that right.

MGR ... Everything lines up when the timing sequence, combination is right. Not always happy results but a sale happens. Life moves on.

Moving on is best time to sell. Always has been. With so many graduating, many empty nesters will be doing just that.

If the homeowner wants and needs to sell, they will eventually sell, unless they play the game 'I said so', that attitude does not help sell houses.

Timing and attitude....can be such a winning combination !

Andrew, in a stable market, there is more negotiation happening, but in our fast paced Seller's market, make your best offer!

Andrew, timing is everything. It may not be under the best circumstances, but these things usually play out as they're supposed to. Great post!

Posted by Suzanne De Vita, Online Associate Editor (RISMedia) about 6 years ago

Timing is everything for sure.
