MAKING AN OFFER ON A PROPERTY – WHAT PRICE SHOULD YOU OFFER?

We all want to buy our new home or investment property at the lowest price possible, or at least get good value for our money.

And of course the vendor wants the most he can get for his property.

Yet you now know that the asking price quoted by the selling agent will usually be more than the owner is willing to take for their home.
