realtor: Reasons to Buy in a Down Market - 07/31/07 10:12 AM
More Choices
Even in a down market, people are still selling property. In fact, the inventory of homes in our area is greater than ever.
Because of the great amount of inventory, there is more pressure for the seller to accept your offer. The sellers have to compete, which leads to lower prices. Check how long the home has been on the market. The longer it was on the market, the more likely the seller will be willing to negotiate. Other benefits sellers may offer could include buyer bonuses, e.g. seller paid closing costs or vacation getaways.
