Sometime we preempt our buyers and get excited.
Scott Godzyk in this re-post discusses
Should you call a Listing agent
to tell them an offer is coming?
Which is proper? Calling the Listing Agent that you may have an offer or waiting until you actually have an offer in hand? Last Monday a Buyer Agent calls and states their buyers will be putting an offer in on one of my new listings. The day ends, no offer from them. A call goes out to all showing agents that an offer is coming in and to submit their highest and best offer. As the week goes on, offers come in from other buyers. A call to the agent who said they were submitting an offer goes unanswered. All offers are submitted to the seller and the home goes under contract.
A week later the phone rings and it is the showing agent who called to say an offer was coming in, they are meeting that afternoon to write on. I let them know that is great, except the home went under contract "last week", you know when you called to say you were submitting an offer??? Que the crickets.....
THE BOTTOM LINE is that in my opinion a good agent calls the listing agent to see if anyone else has submitted an offer. I would never tell a listing agent i was submitting an offer, until i had it signed by my buyer. This agent lost this home for this buyer by a lack of action. My seller though, was the happiest couple in the world.
The HARD TRUTH is that the BEST way to be prepared to buy or sell a home is by hiring a "GOOD" Agent. One that will guide you through each step of the Buying or Selling process. To the consumers who were successful, they found the secret which I would like to share with you. Free advice can be worth what you paid for it, so when you are ready, do it right.
THE TOP TIPS TO FIND A "GREAT" REAL ESTATE AGENT
1. LEARN THIS ONE FACT: One should know that All Agents are not created equal and every buyer or seller should take the time to hire the BEST not just the biggest Agent or Company. It is important to Hire the BEST Agent. In NH that could be me.
4. HOME SELLERS SHOULD START BY: Getting a FREE MARKET ANALYSIS. Learn what your property is worth in today's market along with how ling it may take to sell. If you are ready to sell now, learn what you should ask for it. How much offers may come in at and what the approximate selling price should be. NH Home owners should contact me now.
IN SUMMARY the key to having a successful purchase or sale can increase simply choosing a better agent. The secret is that All Agents are not created equal and every buyer or seller should take the time to hire the BEST not just the biggest. I leave you with now infamous philosophy, which is simple, to provide more personal and professional service to guide my clients through each step of the buying or selling process.
