With contracts routinely going over 40 pages here in Maryland, it's a question I get frequently from agents who are trying to short cut the process. It takes a couple of hours to actually do the job right...and there are so many agents not willing to invest the time and effort.
My answer is always the same: "I think I can get them to accept full price." The sarcasm frequently goes over their heads.
A couple of reasons that I choose not to answer the question directly: a verbal from me doesn't mean spit in the real estate contract world, and second...they never tell me what other surprises might be in the offer. You know, those things that buyers agents like to gloss over like seller contributions.
Maybe it's just the fact that agents are writing offers that aren't getting accepted, I don't know, but this year especially, I've gotten more calls, on more listings asking the same lame question..."Hey Rich, how much will your client take?"
