I found a decent piece of land a little more rural than where I am now that I would like to buy.The realestate guy says he will make any offer to the out of town seller that I want to make. The property is an old homestead with lots of improvments. I think the property is worth the asking price, but I am thinking of offering maybe 10-15% less. I know the seller is fairly well off and just wants to sell the place, so Im hoping he will accept a little less just to be done with it. The realator said the owner told him not to push it too hard. I take this to mean he is in no rush. Who knows. I am trying to use my current place (which will be sold) as a carrot for the RE guy to possibly encourage the seller to accept my offer. I want to be careful not to insult the seller with a lower offer but I dont want to seem overly eager either. Its hard for me to negotiate through the realator because I cant get any direct feedback. If the seller refuses the lesser offer with no counter offer, will I get the chance to offer the asking price. This property is newly consigned and hasnt even been advertised. Realestate savy folks, give me some advice.
