86% of home buyers in the 2016 Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers published by the National Association of REALTORS indicated that an agent’s ability to negotiate the terms and get them the best price was very important to them.

Here are the top 5 negotiating points of real estate purchase contracts:

  1. Price
  2. Terms (Financing, closing costs, etc.)
  3. Closing and Possession Dates (When you get the keys!)
  4. Inclusions and Exclusions (What’s staying and what’s not.)
  5. Contingencies (Getting a loan, having to sell another home to buy, inspections.)
