That being said, it does not mean that you won’t or cannot get the highest price for your home - price just can't be the deciding factor.  A buyer who can give you a quick closing time will appeal more to you than a buyer who can offer you more money but the negotiation and closing time drag out.

Know Your Bottom Line

It’s always good to know how low you are willing go when it comes to the selling price. This will help eliminate some of the offers that you find ridiculous. Even though you should consider all offers and take into consideration the terms of each offer - if you know your bottom line price and are firm about it, you can save yourself a lot of time.

Know Your Bottom Line

Once you know what your limits and reasons are, discuss them with your Spring Hill TN real estate agent so they can help you set your goals realistically.  If you decide to list your home on your own, make sure you do research on the current market, and you get the proper advice you need in terms of legal issues, etc.  You might also want to read "Is It a Good Idea to Sell Your Nashville Area Home on Your Own (FSBO)?

  • Be prepared for negotiation.  Learn and understand your buyer’s situation and 'their motives' - can you demand a bigger deposit from them without losing the deal? Try to lock in the buyer so that the deal goes through.
     
  • When selling your Spring Hill TN home, negotiate for the best price and the best terms. Learn "the art of the counter offer" to get more from every offer.
     
  • Make sure the contract is complete.  You want to be honest with your disclosures.  What you don't want is to lose the deal because you were diminishing your home’s defects.  Also, to protect both you and your buyer, have a professional home inspection done. 

The key here is to be realistic and know exactly what your goals are so they can be met. Basically, if you are clear on your motives for selling your Spring Hill TN home, you'll be in a much better postion to negotiate and get what you want - whether it be a quick closing, higher price, or somewhere inbetween!
