Getting the best price on your new home

There are a number of ways you can ensure you’re getting the best price on the property you’re looking to buy. Here are three main ones that you should always be doing to ensure you get the best price.

  • Listen to your Real Estate Agent
    Agents have a massive amount of experience when it comes to buying and selling properties, so even without doing copious amounts of research, they’ll have a good idea of whether a property is priced fairly, or if you could offer a lower amount and stand a good chance of having your offer considered. Likewise, listen to your gut instinct; when you’re viewing the property (and even the surrounding area!) if you feel like the asking price is too high, then question it. Bring it up with your agent, and see what they think.
  • Do plenty of research
    The neighborhood that the property’s in will have some impact on the asking price, as will the neighborhood and surrounding area’s projections for the next few years. If the area is improving property prices are likely to be a little higher (take San Francisco, as an example — the city is experiencing a tech-boom and property prices are rising as a result). Likewise, if the property market is currently a seller’s market, then you’ll find prices are higher. If you’re not tied to a strict schedule, you could consider waiting until it becomes a buyer’s market again and prices are a little lower.
  • Check out comparable properties, AKA “comps”.
    Recently sold properties, those that are still on the market and properties that are in escrow that are comparable to the properties you’re interested in are all a good place to start with your research. See how the price of the property you’re looking at compares with similar properties, but also take a look at properties in different price brackets. How similar, or different, is the property you’re looking at from those that are more expensive, or more affordable? Be sure to also ask your agent for their experience with comparable housing choices, and see what they have to say.
