A Perfect Window of Opportunity Gets Blown

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Gold DRE #00697006

When a listing agent deals with enough buyer's agents, the same story often pops up over and over. It is this crazy talk of commitment, dedication, and unrelenting love for the property, when much of it is puffery. Some buyer's agents will say anything to get into contract. Even when presented with a perfect window of opportunity to get their client a house, they can still come up a day late and a dollar short.

True, some make promises without talking to their buyers, thinking they can talk them into whatever the deal is. They don't realize or perhaps they don't care when the listing agent discovers the agent cannot do what the agent promised. Well, sometimes things work out just the way they are supposed to work out. You can read more about this in my personal blog today at this link: How to Miss the Train in Sacramento Real Estate.

Elizabeth, I so agree, and know the agents want the house more than the buyers at time!
