Sometimes a Realtor should just say no. Especially Buyer’s Agents. What do I mean? Folks, sometimes realtors just can’t help buyers. I’ll give you a perfect example. I’ve had two buyers this first half of the year contact me to look at a certain community. I’m not going to name names but I’ve never really been high on these developments. Let’s just say they have had their ups and downs and now I feel like they are headed in one way only, and that ain’t up folks…
I ran the numbers on one of the locations for a buyer this morning and currently this location has 55 homes for sale and an average days on the market of a whopping 350! Only 4 sales in the last 3 months which I think is incredible with all the indicators on where this is going. I know I lost one sale because the people contacted another agent and the last buyer was mainly a looker. Does it bother me?
Yep, I’ve got a daughter starting vet school and I certainly need the money. But in the end folks it comes down to doing what I feel is right… and honestly if I don’t feel good about a property or neighborhood, I’ll step away. That’s just me. Actually I’ve lost quite a bit of commission over the years by not telling my buyers what they want to hear.
You see, I’m anything but a yes man. I’m engaged as a buyer’s agent to give a second opinion and if the property, price, location or any other attribute don’t make sense to me, you are going to hear it. Ya’ll take care and if you need a second opinion and a good buyer’s agent on your side, please call me.
