What is the name of your state?I am in California
I share a common wall with my neighbor.
We have been neighbors for 18 years.
He wants to sell his house and move out of state.
It will go on the market in a few weeks.
I would like to buy his house so I get more space for my family.
He has not yet decided an asking price?
How can I convince him to sell the house to me?
And avoid putting it on the market, if possible.
Here are some incentives that I have been thinking about:
1. I can offer to pay the Sellers closing costs.
2. I can offer his Agent to be my Agent too and double the commission. With full disclosure to the Seller, of course.
3. My lender will have a pre-approval ready in 1 week.
What else can I do to convince the Seller to sell his house to me?
