Frustrated with Buyers

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty

I am so frustrated with a Buyer that I have been working with for months. She has been leasing for 5 years, she is approved. We look and look at homes, but she seems to always find something wrong, or hesitates. We have found several homes she really liked, but she hesitated once again and she lost out. I have tried to explain the Buying process, and that the homes that are updated somewhat and priced right are going quick. We have been looking for 3 months, I am to the point I am just about done.

The problem is there is so much inventory Buyer's are taking there time, but taking their time does not pay the bills. i would just like a buyer like I had a month ago, showed her 5 house, and she made her decision, and we closed a month late. That was sweet. Buyer's need to wake up and realize there is a lot of inventory, but sitting around and hesitating does not mean you will get a better deal. I am suppose to show a few houses tomorrow to this buyer, hopefully we will finally find the own. I am ready to move on. I have a listing the same way, a Buyer likes it but he is hestiating also. This house is priced right, and is below market, and is in excellent condition. This is a great buy.

I know that these people will finally realize that they need to make a decision, and this will be the week to do that. Buyer's wake up and realize how hard we agents work, to make your dreams come true.

Kaylynn... is sounds like you just might be picking buyers that are simply not yet ready, or committed to the buying process.

What I might suggest is asking them this question :  Ms Buyer... IF... while we are out today looking at these five home,... IF... one of them seems like it is just perfect for you... are you ready to go ahead with the paperwork today ?

If she says no... ask why ?  And then... ask when... ?  If she fumbles around with her answer... then she is just simply not to the "buying point."  Just a friendly suggestion, here.
