Presenting A Poorly Written Offer
 
We wait for an offer to come in and the seller gets excited with the mention of a forthcoming bid.  
 When we see the contract and it is poorly written, missing important addenda, wrong dates and mistakes...

An Offer Is Not An Insult
 
 
As a listing agent, I encourage offers and don't worry about "insulting" me or the seller?                                                                 
 
 

 
There have been offers rejected but many more  have been negotiated and gone to settlement.  
No seller wants to 'give their house away.'  But they do want to sell!    
Does the seller have to accept a "too … (107 comments)

I Did It..I made An Executive Decision
 

 
Talking to a seller for the past several months and found out she is ready to list her home. It has been a difficult decision because prices have not appreciated in her community.
 Recently retired, she wants a different community, but not sure where.
She wants to use me as her Realtor® and she is almost 100% sure she is ready to sell.
 
Do you remember  my two questions?
 
 

 
 
We met, we talked, we signed the listing agreement and she called me the same … (36 comments)

Around the room, people get up....some drone on and on, others barely whisper their name and  still others stammer through an almost inaudible description.
