As a home seller, it is essential to do everything possible to promote your house to the right groups of property buyers. However, as you approach the finish line of a home sale, you may encounter a "persistent" homebuyer. And if this happens, the home selling process may come to a screeching halt.

A persistent homebuyer may be more likely than others to demand home improvements or a price reduction to finalize a house sale. As a result, you may need to decide whether to accommodate this homebuyer's requests, continue to negotiate with him or her or walk away from a potential home sale altogether.

So what does it take to deal with a persistent homebuyer? Here are three tips to help you do just that.

1. Understand the Housing Market

Are a homebuyer's requests valid? If so, they are likely to be based on housing market data. Therefore, if you analyze the housing market closely, you can better understand a persistent homebuyer's demands and proceed accordingly.

Take a look at the prices of comparable houses in your city or town. By doing so, you can determine how your house's price rates against the competition.

Also, don't forget to assess the prices of recently sold homes in your area. This housing market data will help you understand the demand for houses in your city or town and determine whether you're operating in a seller's or buyer's market.

2. Stand Your Ground

A persistent homebuyer may be in a hurry to purchase your house. As such, he or she may push you to make rash decisions that may not be in your best interest.

For home sellers, it is important to take a step back and evaluate all aspects of any home selling decisions. And if you feel uncomfortable with a homebuyer's requests, you should feel comfortable walking away from a possible home sale.

Ultimately, declining a homebuyer's requests and walking away from a home sale is far from ideal. On the other hand, doing so will allow you to reenter the housing market and restart the home selling journey with a fresh perspective.

3. Consult with a Real Estate Agent

If you're unsure about how to deal with a persistent homebuyer, you're probably not alone. Lucky for you, real estate agents are available nationwide to help you handle tough negotiations with any homebuyer, at any time.

A real estate agent understands the art of negotiation and can share his or her housing market expertise with you. That way, you can get the support you need to make informed decisions at each stage of the home selling journey.

Perhaps best of all, a real estate agent will respond to your home selling queries as the property selling journey progresses. No question is too big or too small for a real estate agent, and this housing market professional is happy to answer your home selling questions time and time again.

Take the guesswork out of dealing with a persistent homebuyer – use these tips, and you can boost your chances of getting the best results from the home selling journey.


If you’re looking to update your home with a more chic, classic style black wall paint is the untraditional but obvious choice. Stand out from the crowd and a sea of white walls with this bold move.

Of course, not just any room can be painted black and called a look. A large room with bright, natural lighting is the perfect canvas to start with. What’s great about black walls is that, as a classic color, it can work in any room.

Placement

Black walls look crisp and modern with the sharp contrast of white baseboards and even as an accent wall in an otherwise white painted room. For the bold and adventurous, a black ceiling with white walls, despite what you might think, bring height and space to a room.

Tie in your color choice with other elements. Black wallpaper with a white pattern, subway tiles with a dark grout and black and white patterned tile are great ways to do just that. In a kitchen, glossy black cabinets look seamless next to black appliances. While black beadboard and shiplap bring a welcome change to a dominating trend.

Decor

Mix textures to keep things dynamic instead of sterile. Soft white elements like a sheepskin throw, curtains paired with sleek crisp lines will have guests believing you had a professional design your home.

White pieces, whether the porcelain in your bathroom, the mantel in the living room or marble countertops in the kitchen keep your space balanced. Furniture and flooring made of wood in lighter shades look best against the dark backdrop. Take a note from the Scandinavian stylebook by adding decor made up of burlap fabric, terracotta, fur, linen, and stone.

Color to Pair

Bronze and gold hardware add glamour and, when in the form of t-bars style drawer pulls, a very chic, minimalist take on the look. Keep an eye out for utensils, decorative bowls, serving trays and sculptures in these metallic hues to add to your room. And with these colors still growing in popularity they shouldn’t be too hard to find!  

Navy helps to tone down the harshness of black while carrying the deep complexity of the darker color throughout the room. Light hues in addition to white, like creams, beiges, and grays maintain balance and brighten the room.

Bright colors add an unexpected pop against the neutral hues. Olive and forest greens add a rich, deepness while pinks, reds and yellow add a playful touch. Add in a dose of color with throw pillows or artwork. Or allow a piece to grab your visitors attention such as a sofa.

Painting a wall black is not for the faint of heart. It’s certainly a bold move but not an outlandish one. Instead, the final result is decidedly chic and even feels couture.
