On This Episode:

Negotiations will always be a part of real estate transactions and we always get questions about what can and can’t be added to an offer.

Your agent will always be able to bring their experience to the negotiation to help you through that process, but let’s talk through some of the most common items so you’ll have a better idea of what you can expect. Keep in mind that market trends will always have an impact on negotiations but this episode will give you a leg up on the process.
