Maybe I Did Overdo It Just A Bit-But It Felt So Good

By
Real Estate Agent with Integrity Real Estate Group
Yesterday in my post "I'd Like Some Of What You're Smoking Please" I told the tale of the offer on a listing that came in a 100K below the list price.  Even when an offer comes in that outside the comps...oh I'll say it ...a lowball offer without a snowball's chance you know where of being considered, it does have to be presented to my clients.

So that an agent knows that I did present it, you never know when Mr. or Ms. Time is of the Essence Agent will appear, I have my clients sign the front page of the offer to return to the agent.

I'm wondering if I might have over done it this time when I also included this next to their signatures:
Rejected Stamp For A Lowball Offer

Was I to harsh or would you like to borrow my stamp for your next lowball offer?

Happy Hump Day!

Olga-it wasn't the first time I've rejected an offer but it was the first time that the stamp seemed appropriate.

Cindy ~ I did the same thing a few weeks back but I didn't have a rubber stamp so we just wrote it in CAPS!

I love the stamp but don't think it would go over so well on my side of the business!

The stamp was in order. It was the proper response to an offer $100,000 below price

Cindy,

So subtlety is not your strong suit. The stamp works for me.

Susan-I admit this time I couldn't help myself.  After we stopped laughing it seemed a statement needed to be made.

Ellen-as long as you keep the "ed" on the stamp and don't just but REJECT on their foreheads.

Cindy, 100K less?  You've got to be kidding.  I think the Red stamp was well earned.

Cindy, I can almost hear the ka-chink of the stamp as it hits the page! We have had sellers spell it out across the front page of the offer (in a sharpie) though. Not the same as the stamp but the message was just as well received.
