Let's Make A Deal....Or Not!

Monty HallLet's Make A Deal....Or Not!

Growing up I used to watch Let's Make A Deal often.  Monty Hall would roam the aisles of all the costumed contestants picking a few out here and there, offering them opportunities that might lead to going home with A NEW CAR....or a donkey with a sack of rocks.

In some ways our local market has become a version of Let's Make A Deal!  We're at the intersection of "It's a Buyer's Market" and "No It's Not!".  Depending on the home, price and location, who really has control is a coin toss.  Buyer or Seller?  And if the seller, which KIND of seller?  The Door #1 Seller that is REALLY motivated and wants a quick deal?  The Door #2 Seller who is just testing the market and wants a VERY high price?  Or The Door #3 Seller who wants to sell their home at a reasonable price, but they don't HAVE to sell today?

And which buyer are we dealing with?  The Door #1 Buyer that will pay ANY price to get that home?  The Door #2 Buyer that is ONLY interested in getting a steal and the home is secondary?  Or The Door #3 Buyer that wants a fair deal, so the house and the price need to align or they'll be calling out "NEXT"?

Most weeks we're negotiating offers, whether for our sellers or our buyers.  Depending on the combination of buyer and seller types, some offers have a very slim chance, others have a solid chance.  Either way, we'll be doing our best to find an acceptable middle ground, and if that middle ground can't be found, at least keeping the deal on civil terms to both parties feel comfortable resuming the talks later.

When you're thinking about buying or selling a Warren County area home, we'd love to help you with your own version of Let's Make A Deal!  No donkeys with rocks for us, no guessing what's under the box.  What you see is what you get with The Liz Spear Team of RE/MAX Elite!  And we won't make you wear a costume either!
