“We found a house we like that just hit the market, but the seller won’t budge off his price. Do you think we should still buy it?”
You haven’t provided me the most important information:
- What are they asking?
- What do you think it’s worth?
If you like the home and it’s worth the list price, buy it. Don’t get caught up with the idea that you HAVE TO get the seller to come down.
If that’s your criteria, you can find plenty of overpriced homes where the seller will negotiate a little, but you’ll still overpay.
So go buy that house.
