But this offer is contingent on the sale of our home? Really? NOTE: This is a buyer from another state, so I have no idea if it is or not.
So my next question is: "Would you mind if I talk to your agent?" Answer, "Why?"
Why? So then I went on to explain that if his/her current home was not priced to sell or if it was an unrealistic price that it would be difficult for me to convince the listing agent here, that their current home would sell quickly. If it was priced right and in selling condition then I would think about this a little further.
My buyer has a home in ABC, USA and was not being cooperative with the situation at all.
I told the buyer that it was very important for me to know if his/her current home had a chance at all to sell in this market, so that it was important for me to talk to his/her listing agent.
I asked him/her for his/her current address [thinking I could investigate through one of my AR friends] and he/she didn't say a word. Then, I tried another angle...as...perhaps I knew someone that was looking for a home in ABC/USA who would be interested... however, that didn't work either.
So, I told him/her that his/her offer probably wouldn't be considered but that I would think about some other options.
Would you write the offer up anyway? What would you do? Was I wrong to ask to talk to his/her listing agent? Do these deals even exist anymore?
