This post was inspired by my friend Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland (she does that a lot, inspire me that is) who just wrote about it - writing an offer - sometimes taking a bit longer. "On occasions the clients have so much confidence in the agent... they just sign with no questions" Margaret wrote, "others need it all explained."
Margaret is right - there is no magic time-frame during which an offer must be signed.
Sometimes hesitancy can turn into a missed chance. Needing to sleep over it one too many nights can mean that a different buyer will be moving into that house. But, when it doesn't work out, it is not the right house ... or the right moment in time.
There's no magic number of questions to ask beforehand or during or even after. As a buyer or seller in Silver Spring, MD and beyond you just cannot ask me too many questions.
My goal is to see you comfortable and confident with the paperwork, process and the offer(s). It doesn't matter if it takes just 10 minutes or a few hours.. we will move at your pace.
You don't want to feel uneasy when you are about to make one of the biggest decisions of your life. You don't want to submit an offer unclear about contingencies. You don't want to move forward having unanswered questions.
"I'm sorry, Andrea, can I ask you just one more question?" There's no need to apologize!
"Andrea, could you explain how that works again.. what happens if...?" Of course I can!
"I know I've been asking you a lot of questions but ... " When it comes to Real Estate and buying or selling a home in Silver Spring, Md and beyond, you can never ask too many questions!
