When you’re searching for homes for sale along 30A, you’ll most likely find “the one.”
And when you do, you need to make an offer quickly. That’s because if it’s “the one” for you, there’s a good chance that another buyer (or multiple other buyers) feel the same way.
So how do you determine how much to offer – and is it ever okay to make an offer below asking price?
Should You Make an Offer Below Asking Price?
Your real estate agent will help you decide how much to offer on a home. Bear in mind:
- If it’s a buyer’s market, where there are more homes for sale than there are buyers to snap them up, you’ll have more negotiating power than you would in a seller’s market, where there are more buyers than available homes.
- If you really love the home, you want to put in the best offer possible to increase your chances of the seller accepting it.
Sometimes it’s appropriate to make an offer below asking price, though.

When is it Appropriate to Make an Offer Below Asking Price?
In these cases, it might be appropriate to make an offer below asking price (but talk to your real estate agent first):
- When the seller is in a rush to unload the property
- When you’re flexible on what you buy because you plan to renovate no matter what
- When the home is ridiculously overpriced
- When the home has been on and off the market several times without selling
- When the home is outdated and you’ll have to update
The bottom line, though, is that you’ll need to talk to your real estate agent about your offer before you make it. He or she will give you the guidance you need to show the seller you’re a good buyer.
