Are Your Clients Ready to Move?

By
Real Estate Broker Owner with WHISPERING PINES REALTY 20398180

You are sitting down to a nice dinner, the closing went fine and a mild celebration is going on.  THEN...your phone rings.  It's the buyers agent...

Mr....I just a got a call from my clients and it seams your clients have not started packing yet.  My clients are sitting in the drive way with the moving Van waiting to unpack!!

WHAT?!

You have led them throught the steps one day at a time.  But did you make sure they understood the posession time.  That when you sell you are expected to move out!?

Some times we assume that they understand this part.  In my early years, this happened to me and I vowed it will never happen again.   I now supply boxes for moving for all my clients...sellers and buyers.  I get them free from the grocery store where I have made a deal with the manager.

So now I have an easy way to make sure that they are packing and that everyone is staying on time.   I am also known as the lifesavor to many because they couldn't find enough boxes..

Don't wait for Dinner to find out your client is slow at packing!

I haven't had anything like that happen, but I have always been sure that I explain carefully when clients have to be gone.

Bill, I almost had that happen, when 3 days before closing my seller asked "how long do we have to get out...and I replied that unless they planned on sleeping with the buyers, they had 1 hour after closing just like I had told them when they signed the PA
