Freaky Friday Post

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Lazarus Realty

This is pretty funny.  Unfortunately,  it isnt far from the truth.  For example, yesterday I received a full price cash offer for a property from another agent.  Then, about an hour later I get a call from some guy who says he's in front of the property and wants me to come down and show it to him.

Mind you, if a Realtor double ends a deal - i.e. represent both sides they make twice as much money.  IOW, if a commission is 6% it is generally split 50/50 between the listing agent and the selling agent --- but if you represent both the buyer and the seller you make the full 6%.  I'm only explaining this so you know that I really had an incentive to show the guy the property: all the commission would be mine.

So, I politely explain the wannabe buyer, who says he is going to make a cash offer, that I don't mind driving all the way across town to show him the property but I already have a full price cash offer (with proof of funds) and that I would not write anything less than a full price offer.  To which he replied, well do you think they would take [insert a price $5,000.00 below the ask] for the home?

I JUST HUNG UP.

Town or Country, in Colorado, we do it all.

Interesting until end when the language degraded.  Very poor taste in my mind.

Well Richard I agree with you that lanquage gets vulgar.  I dont us that kind of lanquage with clients but its quite common and unavoidable in real life.

 

For example this Realtor has no problem shooting off F bombs:
