Is it negotiable?
This is almost always the second question after asking for the price.
Hmm...Isn't everything in life negotiable?
Many low offers have made it through to closing.
You cannot insult me with a lowball offer, and I should not allow the seller to be insulted.
The people who visited your home showed your home and made NO offer...were the insulting ones.
When someone takes time to write, submit, provide financial proof, chooses a lender, a title company, produces earnest money, decides on various dates, closing, inspections, etc., and...signs forty pages, that is not an insult..that is an offer!
The seller does NOT have to accept.. but it is the start of negotiations.
Please respond with a thank you.
If it cannot be negotiated...just an
" We appreciate the offer, but no, thank you."
works very well.
Even when there are multiple offers...this is the right response.
If you are thinking about buying or selling a home
