All Buyers are not (LIARS), afraid to show the Seller some R.E.S.P.E.C.T.

By
Real Estate Agent with California Lifestyle Realty DRE# 1780607

After reading Janet Gilbauld's recent post about buyers low balling, and trying to stick it to the sellers...

I wanted to share my current experience with my buyers.

We have an escrow closing at the end of the week-- and these buyers came from an ACTIVERAIN REFERRAL!  They talked about offering less than what I recommended-- we ended up offering  $10,000 under list price.  We ended up settling for $2,000 under the list price. 

Now this property had been reduced significantly... and it was priced right.  My buyers wanted to make sure that the seller was happy with the deal.  Really.  They wanted HER to be HAPPY WITH THE DEAL. 

They are new to the area, and the state, for that matter... and should they need additional info on the house, etc.  they wanted to be able to give her a call.   I think that's nice.  It shows manners.  It shows respect.  Perfect clients.  Thank you Ralph!

Kathy,

What a lovely story, and I have seen that before, where people became friends instead of one party feeling they bested each other.  What a wonderful outcome, and given your sunny disposition, I am not surprised.  I think that this will lead to more business for you.  Way to Go! A

That was some smart buyers and they are right, what a better way to get information about a home than from the sellers. Making a bad experience from a seller isn't the way to do that.

Now that is a nice story, seriously. We see it all these days and can become a bit jaded.

Oh what smart buyers you have.  No doubt you've coached them well!  No need to burn any bridges during the negotiations.
