Don't want to what? Well, negotiate or sell their home. The poor listing agent is tearing at her hair. Apparently these sellers are a major handful. Let me explain.
About three weeks ago my buyer clients offered to purchase the sellers home. They had mad it known what they would accept in an offer, so we came in very close to that. Unfortunately for us, another offer arrived same day and was a bit better than ours, so we lost out. Ok, that happens.
about 5 days later we notice that the sale has fallen through during due diligence and is back on the market. Not at the price it went under contract for, but $15,000 higher! Really? Not sure why the offer fell through, but my clients said lets try again. So yesterday we made another offer on this home. The agent texts me and start telling me that the seller will not except this, that, and those other things. This before it was even presented.
I am not very hopeful that we will come to an agreement on this home as the seller seems to be unable to negotiate a deal. With the home already on the market for around 180 days, you would think they would be a bit more amenable to work with interested buyers, just say'in.
If you are looking to sell your home, please talk to your agent about how they will help in the negotiations when the offer comes. Have your battle plan well thought out before your home hits the market.
