As Real Estate Agents, we should understand that buying a home is a huge decision, especially first-time-home-buyers.
If rushed into making decisions, buyers may blame Realtor for pushing them into wrong decision.
I advise my buyers against making rushed decisions.
When they decide to make an offer, I ask if they're sure this is the right home. Then I'll help prepare the offer based on my knowledge of the property and current demand.
NUMBER OF SHOWINGS
Some agents show only 6-12 homes. Not me.
If my buyer is serious I'll show 50 homes if necessary
I'm a retired Pan Am Airline Captain, with an analytical personality. I know what I need and how to find it. If I'm looking for a home and an agent pushes me, that agent is history. I won't be pushed.
We planned to scale down to a $200,000 home and looked at about 60.
My agent was well rewarded for her patience.
We looked at one home in the gated Lakeside sub-community of Val Vista Lakes but it wasn't a match.
Then we saw a sign on a waterfront home. The agent knocked on the door and the owner invited us in. We fell in love with the home and bought it that night for $667,000.
The agent had anticipated a $6,000 commission. By us choosing a larger home on the waterfront, she received a $20,000 commission.
Was it worth her time for being patient? ----- Is Val Vista Lakes a lake community?
