Ask for more than one option

Nowadays the best way to look for a property is the internet, where you can find many properties advertisements for sale and also Real Estate Agents directories. You can have an idea for pricing but don’t stick at just one option. Remember the more options you get the more information you get about pricing.

The lowest price is not always the best price

A very know strategy for selling things is to set a lower price. But behind, there can be many things attached. For example, a very cheap property can be located in an insecure neighborhood or it would be surrounded with problematic neighbors. So, sometimes is a good custom to ask first as many questions you can to the advertiser in order to detect what is behind a very cheap price.
