Mama's freaking out 'cause she doesn't like it!

Real Estate Agent with Prado Real Estate South UT DRE# 6541633-SA00

Mama's freaking out 'cause she doesn't like it!

Mama's freaking out 'cause she doesn't like it!

Little did the potential buyers and mama know that the seller could hear E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G they said as they perused the property with their agent, offering up their opinions freely! Mama is gifting part of the purchase amount and feels she has the overall say whether they buy the home or not.

The best advice that I can give to buyers: Leave the home and then speak candidly about opinions whether good or bad because they may jeopardize buyer position or worse, negotiating power may be rendered useless. People get excited and emotional in this business but keeping the lips zipped helps to keep everything in perspective.

So, before mama starts freaking out, get her into the car and down the road before she wreaks havoc. Or you may as well kiss your dream home goodbye!

Roger Oh, yes she can and will if given the chance. Better to escort her to the car and make haste!

People, get in the car and talk about things.  Wow, what we have to put up with from people sometimes.

Wanda- reminds me of a time years ago when I was looking at a home with my agent.  There was a camera at the front door and as the owner was present, he showed us a few others.   With a knowing look at each other,we (my agent and myself)  decided it best if we kept all comments, good or bad, to ourselves and until we were clearly away from the house.

Mamas can be interesting, that's for sure - especially when their money enters into the equation!

Wanda -- with the miniturization of so many things today, cameras and microphones can be so inconspicuous that only the professional might find them.  As you imply "mums the word" until outside and away from the house.

Will, Some days are more interesting than others for sure!

Kathy, You just never know when someone is within earshot. And you know that some people cannot help themselves!

David & Bonnie, Some mama's must have their say...a little discretion goes a long way though!

Steven, It just makes sense to quash the emotional outbursts until out of range! If possible.

Hello Wanda,

Great post!  I always hold the conversations about the home out and never know who might be listening!

So funny Wanda.  Parents can really poo poo a deal.  I get that they don't want their kids to make a mistake and buy something that isn't right, but that's our job isn't it?

Lisa, Thank you. Having a strategic discussion before viewing a home is important, otherwise it can harm a transaction. 

Jared, I bet there was some cringing going on during that visit...agent...potential buyers! As a parent. I understand the importance of making a good investment but I trust the agent to guide their client in the right direction. Mama will not be living there!
