Now more than ever having a Professional Real Estate Agent on your side to help you negotiate to purchase a home is very important. We provide for you information about housing trends, current house prices, area pricing information and more.
Many buyers ask what percentage we can get off list price. In the Northern Illinois area including Barrington, Deer Park, Lake Zurich, Palatine, Schaumburg and surrounding area, there are averages for every area. This percentage of List Price vs Sale Price is not cut in stone for every home for sale in a specific area. A professional Real Estate Agent can help you determine if a home is priced right, priced high or is priced below market. If it is priced below market price, you may need to bid above list price. Foreclosure and Short Sale properties according to the lenders should be priced at market, but many times are priced below to receive multiple offers or bidding wars.
Just because you may pay over list or at doesn’t mean you didn’t get a deal. If you need help with pricing or buying a home, contact the Julie Anne Real Estate Team for professional help.
