Price Negotiations

I love helping Miami, South Miami, Kendall, Pinecrest, Cutler Bay, and Palmetto Bay real estate buyers to find the perfect property. But I love even more the ways in which I can help them to buy it at the very best price with the very best terms. Sometimes negotiations aren’t all price. A great contract can involve other seller concessions that create the right deal for my buyer clients.
 
Real estate market data –How can you be expected to make price offer decisions in a vacuum? I spend a great amount of time and effort in collecting market data to help my buyers in their price negotiations. This data involves not only sold property prices by neighborhood, but also current listing pricing to determine the competitive nature of the market.
 
This data is very thorough, and it’s call a Comparative (or Competitive) Market Analysis.  There are two parts, the comparison of the property you’re considering to similar properties recently sold in the nearby area.  This gives me a firm grip on what has happened in the near past, but by nature it is “past” data, thus possibly not accurate for the market as it is when you’re in negotiations.  I then do another CMA process on the currently listed properties most like the one under consideration and in the same neighborhood or nearby.  This gives me a current market snapshot so that I can adjust my valuation model and my offer to reflect the current market situation.
 
Thorough knowledge of your situation – Only through constant communication I can advise you properly in pricing negotiations. By understanding your motivations and financial capabilities, I can help you craft a price negotiation strategy with the highest probability of success.

Seller motivation research – While it’s not always legally possible to determine why someone is selling, there are things I can glean from their listing and price activity that will allow me to help you to negotiate from a position of strength.

It’s not all money – There are a lot of ways to negotiate a real estate deal, and they don’t always involve money. Perhaps the seller doesn’t have a lot of ability to work with you on price, but they can make other concessions that could result in a deal. I help you to take the best approach.

It’s not over till it’s over – Many real estate price negotiations involve multiple counter offers and a lot of back–and–forth. I'm with you with each counter offer to adjust your negotiation strategy accordingly. Because I can’t know the seller’s financial limitations in many deals, some buyers are elated when they cut a major low-priced deal on a home, but then after inspections they hit a brick wall in negotiations with the seller related to repairs.  The negotiation to purchase a home isn’t over with the price on the contract, and it’s best to know that a real deal at the front end could result in less flexibility after inspections in the repairs discussion.
 
The thing to remember is that I'm right there with our Miami, South Miami, Kendall, Pinecrest, Cutler Bay, and Palmetto Bay real estate buyers throughout the negotiation process with the latest information and experienced advice.

  • Maggie Dokic is a fabulous agent and if you are buying a home, this is the woman to speak with! Not only is she ALWAYS on time (which for her is 10 minutes early) but she also is constantly in your corner and putting 100% into finding you your dream home. She is a great communicator and always responds to emails and phone calls immediately. Also, she will listen to what exactly it is that you are looking for and will work tirelessly to help you get it. Not only has she helped us buy and sell our last place, but she has worked with several of our family members as well, each one having the same great experience. We had very specific criteria that she helped us find along with the fact that we needed a place to accommodate our two 90 lb dogs. She was able to find places that fit our needs perfectly!

  • To the best Realtor, Maggie Dokic. Please dont mind this dirty envelope. It is my honest proof and good intentions of sending this long ago (the original envelope). I know you dont even believe what you are seeing. After one year and almost three months this crazy lady is sending a thank you. Maggie, there is no excuse that I can give for this late thank you because you did not deserve for this to be late at all. I dont believe that I could have gotten a better Realtor. With much thanks do I thank you for such a wonderful, QUICK and PROFITABLE sale of my home!!! Thank you so very much!!!
