    Excerpts-
    • From the book Be a Successful Negotiator in your Real Estate Deal Excerpted from The Complete Book of Real Estate Contracts by Mark Warda ©2005 In some societies negotiation is a way of life and a joy. People get angry if you accept their first offer. They want you to complain and counteroffer. They love to haggle and to feel they have gotten the best deal they could out of you. Not so in America. Most Americans hate haggling. Haggling means uncertainty and the possibility of rejection. We never know how high or how low to go and we always worry if we could have gotten a better deal. We would much rather know the bottom line so we can take it or leave it. Since real estate is the most expensive purchase many people make in their lifetime, putting together a real estate deal is the most important negotiating a person will do. Most real estate is not priced on a take-it-or-leave-it basis, so it is usually necessary to do some negotiating to find the best available deal. No matter how much you dislike negotiating you should consider that a little discomfort may result in a savings of thousands of dollars. When buying or selling a piece of property you should remember the rule, it can’t hurt to ask. By using this as your motto you can considerably benefit. If you really hate to negotiate, you can hire a buyer’s broker or an attorney to negotiate for you. While a buyer’s broker can often get paid out of funds the seller was expecting to pay as his or her commission, an attorney will charge you by the hour, at a rate of usually $100 or more. If you want to get serious about negotiating, there are several good books on the market explaining all the techniques and nuances of negotiation. If a lot of money is involved you might want to get one of these or hire the services of an attorney or broker to negotiate for you. If not, you can just use the techniques in this chapter to gain a considerable advantage.
    About the Author-
    • Mark Warda received his BA with Honors in Political Science from the University of Illinois in Chicago and his JD from the University of Illinois in Champaign. He also studied law at the university of Oxford, England and studied German in Cologne and Spanish in Barcelona.

      Mark started his first business at the age of three when, after learning that one needs money to buy things, he started selling his drawings to visiting relatives. While practicing law he noticed that his clients had problems they would not have had if they had known something about the law before they came to him. So he started Sphinx Publishing to publish self-help law books. His first book was Landlords’ Rights and Duties in Florida and his first printing sold out quickly. Over the next few years he wrote several more books and eventually quit practicing law to publish the books full time. After finding lawyers in other states interested in simplifying the law, he began publishing versions of his existing books adapted to those states.

      By 1996 he found he was spending most of his time overseeing the publishing end of the business, so he sold the company to Sourcebooks to give himself more time to write books.
      In 1998 he started Land Trust Service Corporation to service readers of his book Land Trusts in Florida who were looking for dependable, affordable trustee services.
      Today Mark is continuing to update his collection of over sixty books and running Land Trust Service Corporation in Lake Wales, Florida with his wife Alexandra and his new son, Mark David.
