Home Buyers: How to Avoid Paying Too Much for Your Laguna Woods, Palmia or Casta del Sol Home

Sometimes, the seller’s Realtor® will try to scare a hesitant buyer with the threat of another serious potential buyer. Don’t fall into this trap—it will only cost you money. If there is another buyer, then the seller’s agent will try to get a bidding war going. In these situations, whoever wins also loses because the buyer ends up overpaying for their Laguna Woods, Laguna Woods Village, Palmia or Casta del Sol property.

If there isn’t another buyer, there’s a good chance that “the other deal” will fall through and the seller’s agent will come calling. Be sure to let the other side know that you might be interested if that happens before you walk away.

This is Tip 22 of a series of 24. Watch Melanie Callahan's blog for upcoming helpful tips on how to maximize your return on investment when you do buy (and later, sell) your Laguna Woods, Palmia, Laguna Woods Village or Casta del Sol home.
