Negotiating in Colorado Springs' Sizzling Housing Market

colorado springs negotiate

When buyers and sellers search for an agent to help with their Colorado Springs property needs, we find that one thing is often overlooked: the agent’s ability to negotiate in a hot housing market.

In a real estate climate like the one in Colorado Springs, sellers are likely to receive multiple offers on a home. This is why it’s important to find a real estate professional who is knowledgeable and experienced with negotiating—especially in a sizzling market like the one in the Pikes Peak region.

For buyers—a home’s average time on the market, comparable house prices in the neighborhood, time of year, and house location are all important factors when preparing to make an offer. It’s important to work with someone experienced so that you don’t overpay for a home or offend the seller by low-balling. You also need to consider the multiple offers a seller is probably receiving.

You don’t want to miss out on your dream home because your agent doesn’t know how to negotiate.

For sellers—creating buyer urgency, strategic staging, home improvements, and understanding the why behind the value of your home are all important considerations when listing your property. You need to know how to handle multiple offers, and how to counter. Without excellent negotiation, you could accidentally scare away potential buyers and end up with your house sitting static. Working with an experienced agent in Colorado Springs will ensure you land the best offer for your home. And in short amount of time.
