The term in real estate before all the disclosures came about
years ago was Buyer Beware. Today I wonder if it has become
more of a Seller Beware market. Sellers have the legal
obligation to disclose everything about their property for sale and
when in a binding contract, it is the Seller that has to put the
effort and funds in to assure their property is closed and on
time. I wonder if Buyers today after putting the minimum
amount of earnest money possible down to secure the contract,
are still looking for a better house and a better deal!
Many times working more than one offer at a time, accepting one
while they are bargaining for another without the agent or Sellers
knowledge. I believe today listing agents show protect their
Sellers by requesting a minimum of 10% earnest money. In most
cases 10% would be enough of a risk of loosing their earnest money
to cause Buyers to secure one contract and follow through to
closing. I have been so frustrated just this week as a
Listing agent to find one Buyer attempting this trick pulling out
of a contract to find Oh, I didn't get the house so I want back in
this contract. Should you as the listing agent advise your
Seller to allow them back into the contract or not? Are there
any other agents that have experienced this same
