(redirected from gazundered)
Also found in: Dictionary.


A situation in which a potential buyer of real estate revises his/her bid for less money before the transaction is finalized. For example, if one originally offers $200,000 and the seller accepts this, a gazunder occurs when one reduces the bid to $175,000. A gazunder is risky because the seller is under no obligation to accept the gazunder. Generally speaking, a gazunder occurs when the buyer is confident that the seller will accept the new price, especially when there are no other potential buyers and real estate prices are crashing.
