Have you been looking for that perfect house? Afraid to make the commitment. Always finding something wrong. Maybe the walk to the property is too far maybe you just don't have that feeling. That is what happened to this couple I was working with. We were looking for almost two years.
There was one property we did make an offer on but to be honest I really felt it was overpriced. They did also and we passed on the counter-offer. The development they are looking in has become more popular than when they started looking. These properties are now selling over asking price.
Every time a property came up for sale I called them and we would look at the new listing. There was always an objection. After all, they would say we have a place to live we are not going to settle. I felt as if they were my hobby.
Suddenly a listing came up that I thought might be perfect for them. I called made an appointment to show. They liked it. I explained the last house went $10,000 over asking They would have to be serious with their offer or they would lose it. It would still be less money than the property we passed on. They knew it was true because I showed them the property
The buyers made an offer well over the asking price. They were in competition with other buyers. My buyer's offer was accepted. They knew this was the place they were waiting for. It was not perfect but they had that feeling inside that this was the one and they were very happy
Love was in the air as this happened on Valentines Day.
