How would you respond to a really low offer?

Many sellers are offended—so offended that they refuse to respond. After all, it’s an insult!

That’s one way to look at it. Another way is that someone just showed interest in buying your house. Isn’t that why you put it on the market?

Perhaps the person who made the offer is willing to come closer to your asking price. Your REALTOR® can help you find out.

One thing is for sure: If you don’t respond at all, you’ll never know how serious the other party is about buying your house. And you’ll never know if you killed a potential deal.
