Every seller, just like every buyer is different. Some WILL only care about price. Most sellers will look at other factors, such as the close of escrow date, the financing…both the loan and who the buyer is using, and if they buyer is asking for other concessions…such as the washer, dryer, refrigerator….or a home warranty with all of the bells and whistles. Usually sellers are worried about their bottom dollar, so if they leave their appliances, pay for a home warranty, and cover the buyer’s closing costs…that all affects their bottom dollar. Some sellers will want a quick close, others will need time to relocate…this is why it is best for the buyer’s agent to speak with the listing agent so you, as the buyer, can make an offer that will appeal to the seller, especially if you don’t mind waiting to close on the home, or can cover your own closing costs.
