So the offer is very low...now what?

You finally get an offer on your home, and it is low.

It is VERY LOW!

So what do yo do.

 

First go into a private room and scream, jump and kick your feet.

Get it out of your system.

 

Now, let's get down to business.

Just because the offer is low it doesn't mean they will go away.

The buyer most likely will wait to see what you have to say.

 

An offer comes with a LIVE person!

Give a counter that you can work with and see what the buyer has to say.

Remember...You have a live buyer, don't let them get away.
