I feel like I just got pistol-whipped by a buyer this weekend! I have a reasonably priced condo in a centrally located Phoenix neighborhood listed, that after being on the market for 12 days a buyer made an offer. He offered $15,000 below asking price with $500 earnest money, wants seller to pay 6% of the closing costs, and have the seller pay for the appraisal. It was everything I could do to stop my seller from turning on me for presenting such an offer. Don't shoot the messenger! A return bullet of diplomacy fired at the brain helped bring the seller to his senses. What do you have in your arsenal to take care of these situations? Is there any way to control these random acts of buyer apathy?
