Have you ever lost a buyer to a builder? I'll tell you a story about what happened to me. Let me know what you would do.
I was working with a buyer for about a month or so showing and registering them with each builder in town. I gave them a booklet about what to do if they go to a site by them self's. I gave them my card to give the agent on site and all that.
One day they come in and tell me that they found a site they liked, and they wanted to sign a contract. I thought "thank God" after all this work! So I asked where the site is and how they found it.
They tell me that the agent is very cool and he is waiting for them to come in right now! I knew something sounded wrong at this point, so I asked did you tell the agent about me? Yes, they said. They were in a hurry to get there because the agent said the home "wouldn't last!" They needed to get it under contract ASAP. He told them, he would be able to give them a great price for it if, they bought it today!
So now, I know that I will have my hands full.
I called the agent. He tells me that at the end of him showing the home that they told him about me. He said that I didn't do anything to sell them that home and he would not pay me as a buyers agent. The only time he spent on them was about ten seconds. Now What?!!!
I told them that that agent lined them up and he would not let me be a part of the deal. They looked so sad at first and then the BOOM!!! Well, the girlfriend said, "sorry about that but, we are going to get it today! It is a great deal! So I told them I had a contract with them and they have to use me or pay me for the sale.
As I said, I worked my butt off for them. Now, at this point, I know I have lost them. Not only the sale, but two listings as well!
I told my Broker about it. Come to find out that the builder is well known for doing it. Icouldn't believe what happened! All that for nothing!
Matt the MARINE says sound off, and tell me what you think.
