Real Estate Negotiation 101

Negotiating real estate deals just ain’t the same anymore
Is it just me? It just doesn’t seem like it’s much fun any more to negotiate a real estate transaction. Short sales, REO’s and homeowners who have have watched all the equity drain from the homes have taken all the pleasure out of the process.

Remember the good old days, sitting around a table, playfully bantering counter offers around until everyone was happy? What do we have now?? Waiting months and months for that 50-50 chance that the short sale will be approved…working with the overworked REO lister, if you are lucky or the REO robot if you are not…or maybe it’s an equity sale with a seller that just saw the equity drain from his home faster than a pony keg at a frat party.
