Mistake No. 5: Lowballing instead of negotiating realisticallyAll homebuyers want the lowest possible price, but there's a big difference between firm negotiating and lowballing.
Buyers can come in with unrealistic expectations about what a property should go for. It's best for a buyer to make a realistic bid not too far off from where he or she would ultimately like to end up.
