But this is a question where the answer is almost always an unknown.
Very often sellers do not know what they will really take. I have worked with some sellers who ultimately accepted a much lower price than they initially would have found acceptable.
It is the old bird in the hand thing....Sometimes the offer in hand is more influential than any discussion about a hypothetical offer.
Sometimes a buyers agent will call the listing agent and ask what the seller will take. The call could be a fishing expedition or maybe a pre-cursor to a low ball offer.
Buyers (and listing agents) should remember the listing agent has a responsibility to their client (the seller) and should not disclose any information that will potentially harm their client's position.
If I am the listing agent and receive that phone call the conversation will likely go something like....
What will the seller take? I can't say but I suggest you put it on paper and I will check. Thanks.If buyers really want to know what they sellers will take they need to make an offer - a serious offer.
Serious offers get the discussion going and that is what will ultimately lead to the answer to the question.
