I want a property as cheaply as possible.

I want a property which is out of my price range, are there ways to drive the price down?

  • By drive the price down, do you mean negotiate yourself a good deal? Being in a good position to buy can often make people consider a lower price for their property. Being a cash buyer, no chain position, able to move quickly can help a lot. but at the end of the day not everyone will lower the price of their home enough for some, no matter how much they want them to. You can only try!

  • Set yourself a limit and offer within that amount, so if you are looking to spend £120,000 look at houses worth £130,000 to £135,000, out of 10 houses you will offer on there will be one that will take £120,000. The only way to drive the price down is to offer keenly from the start.

  • So just offer what you can afford. They will say yes or no. Takes 2 minutes. If there are dozens you would buy if only they were cheaper. eg if you want a 2bed flat in a certain area and there are 100 for sale at £250k, and you can only afford £200k, offer £200k on all 50 and you will almost certainly get one. However if you've set your heart on one particular one, then probably not.

  • If you think your property has given the right valuation then you would possibly grab the price whatever how much would that be.
