A Realtor's "Dear Jane" letter to a Wishy Washy Buyer
When we mutually agreed to work together, I “assumed” that meant a “working” relationship.Meaning you give me a list of parameters that you establish for your purchase and I help you meet those parameters.What I mean by this is that if you tell me that you….
A)already own a home and that you’re wanting an investment property, then I understand that to mean that you want to get a “deal” and not offer above list price the first hour on the market.
B)don’t care about this house because there will be others and you can wait, then I understand that to mean that you’re not emotionally tied to any one particular house and that you want to exercise that leverage by choosing the best house for your situation as a new “investor.”
C)need to take a break looking because it’s too stressful, then I understand that this is very complicated and can be highly stressful, at best, and so we’ll take a break…
However, when you then email me the next day and tell me that I’m not aggressive enough to represent you because you’ve now lost two houses to cash investors (as if you're the only one that EVER happens to?!) even though we put in offers the first day on the market….well, now THAT is something different altogether.So, now that you’ve fired me for not doing my job properly when you effectively tied my hands behind my back, let me say something to you…
First, please have enough decency to be HONEST with me, at all times.Give me the facts, even if they’re changing moment by moment, otherwise I can’t assist you and neither will anyone else.
Second, if at any point in time the process of buying a house is confusing and/or you don’t understand something, please talk to ME.Don’t go to your loan officer, your adult children, your neighbor, your book club, your friendly grocery clerk….WE are on the SAME TEAM, so talk to me, FIRST.
Finally, you hired me to represent you, so please let me do that.If you think I don’t know what I’m doing, then why did you hire me?I came to you highly endorsed, yet you doubt me.Why waste my time, and yours, if you’re not committed to working TOGETHER?
