The WigglesCan you tell me if there is any Wiggle Room? I got a question like this  from an agent today on one of my listings and I know exactly what the agent was saying. Will The Seller Drop His Price? Will The Seller Take Less?

Since I was hired by the seller to get the best price for him and he hasn’t authorized me to quote any price other than the list price, all I could say was for the agent to have her buyer to make his offer and I would certainly have the seller look at it very seriously. If a buyer asks this same question I will answer just make your offer and I will get the seller to give it serious consideration.

No matter if I happen to know that my seller would take less, if the seller hasn’t given me permission to spread the word, it is confidential information. If my seller was willing to take less, I would strongly advise him to lower the price so it would be public knowledge and all buyers and agents would know it and hopefully it would prompt a quicker offer.

Can you tell me if there is any Wiggle Room? The answer is no I can’t, but instead of saying that, I do the little verbal dance. I encourage an offer in writing, tell the agent or buyer about all the attributes of the home and say I would be glad to present any offer to the seller for consideration.

If you are needing real estate assistance in Clarksville TN, I would love to be able to assist you. If working as your buyer's agent I can help you put together an offer and work hard to negotiate it for you. As your seller's agent I will work hard to get you the best possible price and keep all you confidentialities.  Call me Debbie Reynolds for the buying advantage or selling advantage.

But I can't tell you if there is any Wiggle Room.

Karen Anne, You are such a sharp lady and remind me of the way my mom was. She was the smartest person I ever knew and she knew people so well. She was a psychologist.

Marte, Yes it is about the dance and trying to wiggle our way into a deal.

Jon, And that is the mission of the agent on either side.

Kimo, It does depend solely on what the seller thinks and how he responds.

Steve, We really will never know if there isn't a written offer.

Mary, If the agent answered a little, a little to one person is another person's a lot.

Debbie, There is sure a lot of similarities with agents experiencing this same question all across the country.

Debbie - I hate getting a question like that on one of my listings.  What are you supposed to say?  It's especially annoying when it comes from another agent... they should know better than to ask!  A buyer, I can  understand, because they're trying to guage whether their offer is going to be shot down immediately or not.

Of course you are right. But the other agent was right to ask.
