First of all you need to check whether the property really is being offered at an attractive price. The fact that there are a lot of viewings does not mean that the property will be sold quickly at the asking price. You should be aware that agencies like to organise lots of viewings together which give the potential purchaser the impression that there is keen interest in the property.
Of course there is sometime competition over a property and the bargaining margin can be small or even zero. If the deal is a good one, quite often we advise our client to offer the asking price even though our fee mainly depends on the selling price we can negotiate. BuyerSide’s involvement is all the more justified for properties where there is stiff competition. Under these circumstances BuyerSide offers other advantages: putting forward their client in the best possible light (reassuring the agent about the client’s financial status and his motivation, help with quickly obtaining credit approval so that an offer can be made without any conditions for obtaining financing (preference is often given to a lower offer if financing is not a problem). In addition, BuyerSide has a good relationship with lots of estate agents, and this can sometimes make a difference in comparison with another potential purchaser. Experience has shown that the vendor or his agent appreciated that BuyerSide is simply involved in a deal. We are there to help the business transaction to progress, obtaining all the elements needed for the transaction (plans, permits, certificates, etc.), which is generally greatly appreciated by those involved.
