It’s hard not to get offended when someone makes an offer that’s so off of the beaten path, that one can’t help but be offended.
Who can blame you for being offended, but here’s the deal: take offense, calm down, regroup, think rationally and then counter.
There now, isn’t that better. Getting a low ball offer on your home for sale is always a 1000 times better than getting no offer at all. There are few things worse than (or maybe even on par with) a low ball offer and they are:
- Letting pride get in the way of accepting an offer
- Not coming to grips with the reality that your home my not be worth as much as you had hoped
- Not countering an offer at all
