The process of selecting a home begins to get easier once a home meets your specifications. You may also get the feeling that this is the one. You should inform your agent your specific likes and dislikes about the property. All of this information is useful in the negotiation process.
Once you have decided to make an offer, sit down with your agent and go over the purchase agreement. In the purchase agreement you offer what price you are willing to pay for the property and disclose what terms and conditions that are acceptable to you. This is the start of the negotiation process. All items that are not under government regulation are open to negotiation. Your agent should be able to guide you through what the typical terms are for a purchase in your neighborhood.
