Joe Head ShotIn today's real estate environment, it gets harder and harder to bring a residential transaction to closure.  You do your best to provide your Seller with a market analysis that provides a true reflection of home worth based on your professional experience.  Not only do you have to sell that price to your Seller, you also have to explain to the Seller that there is a possibility that the Buyer's mortgage company appraiser may not appraise the property for the negotiated sale price! In this case you may have to enter into another round of price reduction negotiations to satisfy the lender.  Better to present this scenario to the Seller upfront, rather than wait for the aforementioned scenario to unfold and potentially have the deal crater later on.
