"My Buyer Added up Eveything that HAS to be done and here's the Offer," said the Selling Agent. The list must have been a long one....the offer was 65 % of the asking price....hmmmm.
We get it....you have to write what the buyers say....but are you really doing them a favor by not showing them the list to sale average in the area ?
"I never thought of that," admitted the agent. If the buyer makes lists of what the house DOESN'T have....instead of what it DOES have....chances of making a house, home are pretty slim. Yes...there are homes on the market that ARE over priced....this was not one of them....Did you look at the sales of comparable homes BEFORE you discussed writing an offer ?
Did you look at the ages of the roof (2 years) the mechanicals (furnace and air conditioner less than 5 years old). Did you see that the Seller is including a home warranty for your buyer's 'comfort'?
No ....she confessed....she had listened to the list of things that the Buyer wanted to add...not looked at what the house had that would not need replaccing...the family room with fireplace besides a living room.
Homes are...or we believe....should be....priced on what they have....and how the "haves" compare to other houses on the market...that may "have not."
