A buyer's agent called yesterday to ask whether I had any offers on a certain listing in Sacramento. I asked why she she was asking. Because, as I put it, I probably will have an offer on Sunday, given the big jump in activity I've witnessed at that particular home. Well, it turns out her buyer, whom she already told me a few days earlier was not really interested in this home has now decided there is an interest.
The buyer is wondering if they should sleep on that decision, and the agent says it would depend on whether I have any offers right now. No, it doesn't depend on that. It depends on whether the buyer is committed or just fishing. Because I can get an offer bingo without any notice and, in fact, I'm taking a few hours off on Sunday, out of cellphone range, and that in itself can generate offers, heh, heh, from previous experiences.
The other thing about this situation is now I know that not only is her buyer indecisive, but he seems torn back and forth. One day he does not like the house, the next day he does, and now he doesn't even know if he should write an offer? This sounds like trouble to this Sacramento listing agent.
