Buying a Home in Brentwood TN: Finding the Right Seller

Buying a Home in Brentwood TN: Finding the Right Seller

If you are planning on buying a home in Brentwood TN or the surrounding area, the best type of home seller is one who's highly motivated.  The reason is why is that a highly motivated seller is more likely to sell at a price that is less than his or her house is actually worth.   

And it matters that you find out why.  Learning why the seller is so eager to sell can help you get the price you want and help the seller get what they want - a timely sale.

Once you have  the opportunity to meet with sellers, ask them why they are selling.  The reason could be anything, such as a job change to a new location or financial problems.  If you can solve their problem, whether it is cash related or time related, do so.   

Let's say, for example, the sellers are eager to sell because they need to move quickly.  You can then give them a fast sale at a lower price.   If you are in a poistion to make an offer, even a low one that gives them cash in a short time, they are more likely to accept your offer!

There are some sellers, however, that you should try and avoid as not every seller is as genuinely motivated as they make themselves out to be.  

A few possible telltale hints that a seller isn't all they're cracked up to be, might include: 

  • Sellers stall on having the home appraised or inspected
  • Sellers are unable to clear up liens against their property
  • Sellers don't own 100% of their property
  • Sellers push back the move-out date
  • Sellers don't have a replacement property or back up plan, etc.

It is impossible to find the PERFECT seller. However, it IS possible to find out which sellers are legit and which ones are not!
