How do you actually get the best deal on a home that you’re buying nowadays?
Number one thing, never ever be emotionally attached to any piece of real estate. You have a general concept of an area where you want to live. Three bedroom, two bath house. You know what you do? You make 10 offers. You keep those offers open for 48 hours.
70 cents in the dollar. You know what’s going to happen? One of those 10 are going to call you back and you’re going to make that offer. And now with the money you’ve saved, you can take that money and roll it right into renovating and having your dream home.
