Negotiate and don’t feel pressured
Negotiate well before you get your first home. Ask how long the property has been on the market. Owners of property that has been on the market for some time are far more likely to negotiate than those who recently put their homes on the market. Real estate agents can sometimes force you to make an offer before another individual grabs the property. But don’t feel pressured: take your time and weigh everything before you make a decision.
