A good purchase process relies on the integration of several factors: the buyer’s clarity re: his/her own needs, the buyer’s grasp of current market dynamics, and the buyer-broker relationship as a vehicle for garnering strategic information and expertise. A buyer must navigate a broad range of potential obstacles, including impersonal market forces, time sensitive demands, process uncertainties, and lateral competition from other bidders. The complexity of the process makes it imperative that the buyer command key information influencing the purchase decision and sale process.A thorough due diligence review on the part of the broker-buyer team and should enable the buyer to proceed with conviction and thus to negotiate tactically – yielding what is insubstantial and positioning for what is critical. Knowing how a property in its current or potential state fits one’s aspirations; where value and price diverge; and when a specific property must be vigorously sought to the final acquisition step of deed conveyance is the marathon effort of a healthy purchase process.

The sale process should mix optimal presentation of the property, pricing strategy, and deal stewardship. Optimal presentation serves to highlight a property’s salient features. Pricing strategy positions the property for a vibrant, healthy auction. Deal stewardship entails the dedicated, best buyer being identified and the transaction process handled such that obstacles are overcome, trust and confidence are maintained, and final deal terms seem to each side to be reasonable and ideally optimal. This process is achieved via a trusting seller-broker relationship, attuned knowledge of the market, and painterly precision around what touches to make, to ensure that the picture — the negotiations to final conveyance — is well constituted.
