6 Mistakes Homebuyers Make With Lowball Offers

Don't be too  harsh with your criticism
3. Not backing up your price
There's an art to presenting an offer that's substantially less than the asking price. A low offer could start negotiations off on the wrong foot if you're not careful. The key is for you or your agent to explain the offer when presented.
"Sellers want to know why you're coming in so low. Include recent (comparable sales in the area) or issues with the property that validate why your offer is so low," he says. Don't be too harsh with your criticism, however — that can also work against you.
