Surefire Way Not To Sell Your House

By
Real Estate Agent with BHG Real Estate - Kansas City Homes SP00229578 2007027091

The buyers and I all had busy schedules. We found an hour when we could meet to see the house. I made the showing appointment the day before so the sellers had plenty of notice. 

On this particular property, the sellers had elected NOT to use an iBox. They preferred to have someone let the buyers in. No problem!

how to sell your house NOT 

Unfortunately, the seller's representative did not show up at the appointed time. The cash buyers were not impressed. We discussed the situation on the sidewalk in front of the house for sale. We agreed that if the seller and his agent could not manage to show the property as arranged, the seller was not serious about selling and the agent was not one we would want to engage in a real estate transaction. 

We went back to my office, looked at some more properties online and found another home for them to buy.      FAQ's

Marco, it's a bit like when you see someone drink too much at a party. You think to yourself 'Oh no! Why did they drink so much? They are sooo going to regret that in the morning.'

Lisa, both buyers took note of the name of the listing agent on the sign. You could see them filing that away in their minds.

Wow, that is absolutely incredible. I can't imagine. And I love your drinking analogy in #6. So very, very true.
