I Broke 3 Hearts Today
It was another situation that none of us likes...the need to let buyers know they did NOT get the home they really wanted in a multiple bid situation, despite doing everything they could to make the best offer, including optimal terms and conditions.
Of course I prefer to deliver good news, but that is not always the case.
And we don't always have an explanation for why things did not turn out as we hoped, or expected. It's one thing when buyers are not making an optimal offer with strong terms and conditions, but so much harder when you develop a strong offer strategy, do all the right things including making a great offer based on comps and the cleanest terms and conditions you can muster, and it still does not go the way you want.
There is no way to soft-peddle the message.
The reality is that it did not work out, we are sorry for that even though we did the best we could, and we have to move on knowing that our efforts were our best. We don't know why the sellers made the choice they did (although we might guess) and ultimately it really doesn't matter.
Time to move on to the next round of properties that could work. And know that sometimes no matter what you do someone else comes out the winner.
