How do you go from $150K to $2.5M in 6 hours - must just be me...
I've been working with this buyer for the past 2 - 3 years. His first idea was to buy a 3/3 by the beach as he has quite a few older children and he thought the beach life was perfect for them.
He was first interested in buying a property where he could "assume" a mortgage as he has lot's of investments and at the time didn't want to apply for a new mortgage (so as not to say to much I'm not going to explain the last comment other than to say, he just bought a huge apt. complex).
So as time went on, we've been corresponding back and forth and he called me by surprise last week and said, "Hey Kar, I'm going to be in town next week for meetings and will be staying on a few days - let's go look at some $80 - $150K condos...I decided to buy cash. UGH! I thought, how am I going to find him a gated community, a 3/2 w/garage and a view for that price. (At least he didn't ask for Ocean or Intracoastal front.). He said he didn't care where it was. So we spent 6 hours looking at the properties that were in this price range.
As we were slowly wondering back to my office. I said, "Hey ___, do you know anyone looking to buy a tiki bar on the beach? I know of one...........................
WELL, the conversation took off from there. Now we're looking for a $2.5M dollar property ocean front.
Just goes to show you. You creat a trusting relationship with your buyer and you will find out eventually, WHAT THEY REALLY WANT...RIGHT MY FRIENDS?
I mean really, I know he was a good buyer, but never expected what the conversation evolved into today. We had a great 6-7 hours driving around and seeing what he THOUGHT he could buy as a great deal...REALITY is sweet, when the buyer realizes that you have been telling them the truth all along. Sometimes a picture is worth a million words - ONCE THEY TRUST YOU, RESPECT YOU, and know for a fact that you have their best interests in the deal and that you aren't trying to sell you junk...
I'm not a pushy sales person, I won't sell properties that I wouldn't buy myself ---WHAT WOULD YOU DO?
