I just had to share this. I just had a deal fall apart for my listing in Cameron Station. We are currently in a seller’s market. There are multiple offers for everything out there seemingly. The long and short of it we had a deal done and the other agent sent over the counteroffer to be signed and she sticks in a $3000 seller concession. Honestly, this was very unethical of her, she gave her client bad advice. Being that the market is so HOT, sellers aren’t giving concession–THEY DON’T HAVE TO!
My seller rejected the offer because he felt she just snuck it in there. As she put it, ‘we are arguing over pennies.’ I thought to myself well it’s easy to say that when the 300,000 pennies aren’t YOURS. Basically the deal fell apart, my seller wasn’t concerned since we’ve had great showings and an offer in just 10 days.
I am confident we will sell the property within the timeframe I have taken the listing. My client knows that I have his best interest and is a patient person. The flip side of this is, I ask myself ‘will that be the only offer I get?’ What if the property doesn’t show well as the current tenant will have boxes all over the place due to her pending departure from the property. These are all points I discussed with my client and he is confident (as am I) the property will sell.
My point being sometimes your Realtor may do something that may perplex you. Don’t be afraid to ask questions of your Realtor. 99% of the time your agent is doing the right thing, but there is that 1% that may think they are outsmarting the other side of the deal.
