Hello, Goodbye

Hello, Goodbye!

 

There are times in this business when I am definitely reminded of the Beatles. Not the little insect critters... oh, well that's spelled differently.. That's the beetles (meaning sheathed wing).. but I do digress.  Actually there are times in the real estate business when I am reminded of sheathed wing insects.  That's the time to call E & J Pest inspection though.  

 

Now back to the Beatles.  It seems that sometimes, buyers and sellers go back and forth in negotiations to the lyrics and tune of a famous Beatle song, "Hello, Goodbye".  Seller says high, Buyer says lo... Buyer says goodbye, Seller says hello..  I don't know why you say Goodbye, I say Hello..  

 

The seller has a slightly higher than market price idea of what his home is worth, the buyer comes in a low-ball price.  We get past that and into contract.  Buyer wants to move in early... goodbye Mr Seller.  Mr Seller is saying, not going to work, no Good-bye here until we close.  

You say yes, I say no
You say stop and I say go go go, oh no
You say goodbye and I say hello
Hello hello
I don't know why you say goodbye, I say hello
Hello hello
I don't know why you say goodbye, I say hello

I say high, you say low
You say why and I say I don't know, oh no
You say goodbye and I say hello
(Hello goodbye hello goodbye) Hello hello
(Hello goodbye) I don't know why you say goodbye, I say hello
(Hello goodbye hello goodbye) Hello hello
(Hello goodbye) I don't know why you say goodbye
(Hello goodbye) I say hello/goodbye

Hi Judi K Barrett I love the Beatles too, and their song does remind me of a few past transactions that I have had with buyers and sellers.

Judi K Barrett - I loved your analogy and the Beatles too! It can really be a ping pong game during negotiations. Somebody's gotta give and sometimes they don't work out. 

I really, really enjoyed your post. You make excellent points!

Judi - The real estate business certainly has its ups and downs, and oftentimes this happens throughout the same transaction. Sometimes a great transaction falls apart, and other times something you would never think would come together, closes.

Hi Judi --- I'm sure many of us know this tune quite well.  And sometimes we just need to "Let It Be".
