Don't be Social on Facebook while Negotiating a Sale or Purchase




FacebookFacebook is a social outlet for all the big events in your life, including the fact you have your house for sale and buying a property.    


If you are a savvy Real Estate agent, you can find the buyers or sellers (whichever client you are NOT representing) and see what they are saying about the transaction!     Have you reminded your clients to zip it!    Remaining silent on Facebook or any other social media is part of my reminders, along with no purchasing prior to signing, for buyers.

DO NOT TALK ABOUT THE NEGOTIATION ON THE INTERNET!     I know it is difficult not to get excited tell your friends via Facebook, but PLEASE CONTAIN YOURSELF.   
  
I have visited the agent's site while during negotiations, and seen comments made --- not good for your clients!

It is exciting buying a house, negotiating the sale, but it is even more fun to post AFTER you closed on that beautiful home.

Yeah, I agree. This is a great advice for all. Thanks for the reminder. It is hard to resist, but it's worth it. Enjoy the rest of the week.

Joan, Excellent advice!  One transaction that was extremely taxing, we had to tell the buyer to not say anything on line.  you really hit the nail on the head!  You want Joan Cox to be your preferred Realtor for Denver Co!

Such good advice. I had a client posting pictures of her future home on facebook before she had even presented her offer.

Social media is crazy.  I have seen agents say very inappropriate things that could hurt their clients and I've seen people say things that could hurt their own negotiations.  Be careful people! Less is more. Get excited and post about it after close of escrow. -Kasey
