I won't show a house to buyers until they get the ok from my lender. So many times I hear, "OH YA, we are all set and can buy!" After they talk to my lender, she usually says, "they need credit repair" or they will be good in a few months. Why disappoint people by showing them property unless they really are ready will and able to buy?
There is the quote that I hear to often. How do they know if they can even get one? How do they know the price they can afford?
I also often hear, "we won't have any problem getting a loan". We were approved for X two years ago in anther state". Huh?
Here is the other side of it folks. If I show you houses, you don't have to buy. I also don't have to show you houses when you can't prove you can buy.
I sometimes will show a vacant or 2 to see if we are on the same page about their wants and needs. What I won't do, is show occupieds, where the seller needs to leave for the showing until you have loan approval. Your thoughts?
