A buyer wanted the Seller to "swear" they would not accept any other offers until they decided if THEY were going to make an offer. To set the scene, I listed a condominium. I had 7 appointments the first day it went on the market. The seller not having a set of keys made yet, met me to get me inside and went to get the some keys made.
For the next 2 hours the 7 buyers came and went. After the last buyer was leaving the seller came back. He gave me the keys so i could put a Lock box on the property. I updated him on the showings when buyer 7 and their agent came back. The agent and their buyer asked the seller direct if he would wait to answer any offers until they decide if they will make an offer too?
Kind of a strange request as they said upfront they just needed time to think about it. Fast forward to this morning. Well... no time to think, 2 offers were already emailed over night. The seller agreed to give that buyer an hour and asked me to come over to go over the offers that were in. Time will tell how serious they are.
The moral of the story is time waits for no buyer. A buyer in this market should have everything in order. When a new listing hits the market, they should be prepared to make their best offer before anyone else. Had they made an offer yesterday, they may have been accepted this morning.
The MOST IMPORTANT thing in real estate for me, is to provide great service. To stand out from the crowd by being there through each step of the buying or selling process. My message that I want to share in Real Estate, is that my philosophy is simple, to provide more personal and professional service to guide clients through each step of the buying or selling process. All Agents are not created equal and every buyer or seller should take the time to hire the BEST not just the biggest.
