Don’t Tell Me That Unless You Are Going to Follow Goldilocks & 3 bearsThrough.

Have you ever received that call on one of  your listings from another agent, who tells you that he will be sending you an offer? You wait and wait and the offer never comes.

Don’t Tell Me That Unless You Are Going to Follow Through.



After waiting several hours past the appointed time I will make the call to the agent to find out what happened and get all kinds of responses as to why the offer hasn’t come......

The buyer really wasn’t qualified for that much house.
The buyer decided to continue looking at other houses.
The buyer wanted to make such a low offer that I discouraged him from wasting everyone’s time.
The buyer decided the house wasn’t in the right school zone.
The house is really too big.
The house is really too small.
The house wasn’t just right......

Whatever the reason just wait until you know for sure that the buyer is making an offer before you get the listing agent and possibly the seller’s hopes up with absolutes.

Now I don’t mind if the agent tells me maybe or asks if I can give  some additional information because the home is being considered or that an offer might be made. But that certain absolute statement “I am going to be bringing you a contract for sure” only needs to be said when you are absolutely positive. Most of the time that absolute certainty doesn’t come until the offer is written. 

Don’t Tell Me That Unless You Are Going to Follow Through.

Wow Steve, That agent put in a lot of effort to not even show it. It makes you wonder what happened.

I have had clients tel me that they are going to write an offer.  I have called for Disclosures/Disclaimers , told the agent I was writing an offer, and then the client changed their mind!  I was then at least polite enough to call the listing agent back, advise and apologize.  Believe me, I was just as disappointed as the listing agent!

Hi Debbie, I suppose that happens a lot. I think agents try to think positively and the buyers evidently don't follow through with the plan.

Debbie - This has happened to me several times, and what bothers me the most is that the agent doesn't have the courtesy to call you back and tell you his clients changed their minds.  Inexcusable...

He is either real new or a real jerk. Fortunately it's been a while since this has happened to me.
