Real Estate Agent Negotiations in Southwest Florida

Know if we are in a buyer or seller market
It is very important to know the “pulse” of the market when negotiating a real estate deal. When you go into real estate negotiations on a property there are many variables and it is a fluid situation. There was a time in the Southwest Florida real estate market over the last few years that a seller could get away with an awful lot. Those days have passed for the most part. It still isn’t a buyer’s market but sellers can’t really demand as much as they once could. There was a time, especially in Fort Myers, Sanibel, Bonita Springs and Cape Coral a seller could basically name their price, name 95% of the terms and have 1 hour showing windows every 3 days and still receive multiple cash offers over asking price. That gave the seller great negotiating position. Those days are in the past for now. So we will discuss negotiation strategy in a more level and sane market.
