It is still a buyers market, but there are still homes that sell very quickly and homes that get multiple offers. It has always been that way. Today's buyer is looking for a bargain but home sales are still negotiated. Negotiating is about give and take and back and forth. Often neither buyers or sellers are in a position to dictate the terms. Both buyers and sellers need to keep in mind that the party on the other side of the transaction is a person . . unless it is a bank. Buyers won't always get what they want, neither will the sellers. Buyers need to understand that it is possible to tick the sellers off and sometimes sellers do not have an unlimited amount of money and as amazing as it may seem sometimes sellers have more than one interested buyer. Negotiating is about back and forth, give and take. Negotiations can break down even in a buyers market if the buyer makes too many demands.
