Buying a home is time consuming and complicated process. The purchase of a real estate property or home is just one of many examples of negotiations that occur in everyday life. It is one of the distinct examples where people in life use negotiations as an instrument to reach an amicable agreement rather than the exception (Steele & Beasor, 2017). In other terms, negotiations when purchasing a home play an integral role in facilitating parties to reach amicable terms.The focus of this paper is to explicitly portray how negotiation plays an important role in the modern-day life and especially when purchasing a home.

In a negotiation transaction where I was a participant, mutual and informed consent is essential in building trust between the buyer and the seller. Before negotiating about the home, it is important to inquire about variables such as price, locations, and size of the house. At the onset of the negotiations process, the first stage is to identify potential value, begin understanding interests, and developing fact-based (Steele & Beasor, 2017). The second stage is information validation and exchange. At this stage, members build rapport and trust as well as assess interest and create value.

The critical stage when purchasing a real estate or home is the bargaining stage. In the bargaining stage, seller and buyer create and distribute value as well as make and manage concessions. At this stage, members share real values and discounts allotted when one purchases the home (Pinto, 2015). The fourth stage is capturing value and confirming interests. This stage is characterized by actual transactions and paying partial amounts of money. The final stage is execution. The execution involves implementations of the agreements reached upon during the negotiations. This stage involves the exchange of titles between the seller and the buyer.
