The Right House is Screaming "Wait For ME" Buying a home can be very frustrating . Not only the qualifying first step . You know where you sit down with the mortgage banker with all your information . Your pay stubs ,bank statements and tax-forms.You know all the things you had to search for . Hopefully you did not try to skip this step . Then you figure out the price of the house you can really afford the payment you can live with .
Now we are ready to hit the road and find the house of your dreams . The one when we walk into you get that feeling . Oh yes it is a feeling . It is the feeling that deep inside you know that this is home . You can live here . It may not have everything you thought you wanted but it does. It has that this is my house feeling . You decide you are going to make an offer . Here in my area of NE Philadelphia and Bucks County for a four bedroom 3 bath home with a finished basement and two car garage ,yard in great condition . Shall we say upgraded needing no work between $425,000-- $460,000 you can make an offer .
I had called the listing agent she did not respond. We wrote the offer a darn good one I may add . Just as I was ready to email the offer the agent called . Oh she said " I am so sorry we signed an agreement of sale this morning " Now we showed the house in the evening . When we were at the house another agent was leaving . When we left an agent was arriving to show the property . If the house was under agreement why didn't she cancel the appointment I asked her ? Oh she said she had trouble with her phone she was so sorry . What was the offer she asked ? Apparently by the tone in her voice I assumed it was a better deal then what she closed .
The buyers were so upset but I insisted they snap out of it we has no time to waste . The right house is screaming "Wait for Me " that one was not it . Sure enough the next day a new listing came on the market . We made an appointment . There it was .The one the buyer had been waiting for . While we were in the yard for the second time another agent came with a young couple and asked if he could come in . I said sure . She said let's get out of here . This is the right house you were right it was screaming wait for me .
On the way back to the office the other agent called . Said you can bring me your offer the buyers backed out . The buyer loudly said forget it I found a house that was screaming wait for me .
The moral of this story is when you have buyers and you think as we all do . I will never find them a house . You may lose several offers ..just remember the right house is screaming " Wait for Me " There it is the perfect house .
