Buyer Negotiation

Your home is your future

Your home is the biggest financial investment in your life. At a more personal level, your home is where friends and loved ones gather, where memories are made, and where you live out your dreams.

You have a lot riding on your offer to purchase and your home inspection. Fortunately, we have the expertise you need to successfully negotiate these two key moments during your home-buying journey. When all is said and done, we’ll help you buy the home you love, without overpaying for it, knowing it is a safe and healthy place for you and your loved ones. 

You can learn more about how we protect your best interests throughout the home buying process by checking out our client reviews on our Google and Better Business Bureau pages.

Home buyer negotiation - FAQs and tips

  1. How can you help me avoid overpaying for my home? When you work with Mad City Dream Homes, we’ll make sure you become an expert in your target market and that you are familiar with the broader market trends. When it is time to write an offer on your dream home, we’ll effectively communicate with the listing agent in order to better understand the dynamics of the sale. We’ll know whether or not any other offers are expected, and if so, how many. Knowing your market and the dynamics of the sale will help us select the right price in your offer to purchase.
  2. How can you make my offer stand out in a competitive market? Very often the winning offer isn’t the highest-priced offer. We can make your offer appeal to the seller by using a number of other strategies that have nothing to do with price. For more information, please contact us
