For negotiation to be a successful process, evaluation should be done on the property in question so that a reasonable price to be negotiated for can be established.
Secondly, the agent can never act in a biased way, which means that he /she should understand the positions of both parties before coming to a final decision. Third in place, after evaluating the worth of the property and understanding the needs of both parties, then the agent should be in the position to make the best offers available. In continuation, an agent should be displined and focused when dealing with a property exchange.

Increasing the value of the property can be achieved in the following simple ways: repainting, fixing broken parts or adding extensions.
