Albuquerque Real Estate negotiating POWER!
Here's something that will give sellers looking for Albuquerque homes for sale some bargaining power; prelisting inspections.
All of us want to save a dollar if possible but I have come to realize that the money we save on not accomplishing a prelisting inspection seems to cost the sellers more $ in the negotiation stage. In today's competitive real estate market market buyers are making lower offers and the often use perceived needed repairs as their bargaining chip.
As a wise seller, it makes sense to have your property inspected because:
1. Once you've made the repairs it reduces a prospective buyer's bargaining power based on unknown condition of systems, and,
2. You, as seller, have removed all surprises relating to unexpected repairs,and,
3. A home offered for sale with the warranty in place is more appealing than an unwarranted home.
Some of the Warranty companies offer a warranty during the listing period (before the home is sold) to the sellers!
