Feeling Rejected: What to do when your first offer isn’t accepted

Though an exciting and energizing process, buying a home can be stressful. This is especially the case for first-time buyers. Even seasoned buyers can find themselves facing disappointment when their first offer is rejected. The good news about “no” in real estate is that is doesn’t usually mean “no.” It often means more like “let’s talk.” This is the time when it’s paramount to have an experienced real estate agent on your side to roll up their negotiation sleeves. It’s important to remember that a rejected offer is not uncommon. An experienced agent understands that a rejected offer is really just setting the stage for what can be a long process. Just as you and your agent worked hard to create a fair first offer, you will have to get back to work on finding a common ground. Having a knowledgeable agent on your side is especially crucial during the case of multiple bids. It’s important to remember that you could lose your dream home for a few thousand dollars – pennies in the long run. Too often a buyer’s emotions get in the way during this critical stage in the home buying process. Your agent is there for you and your best interests. Rely on their industry experience, and trust them to smartly navigate you through a tough negotiation. When you hire a Nothnagle Agent, you can be sure that he or she is highly trained and will work hard to help you secure your dream.
