If'n you say you're gonna do it, then tarnation you should oughta follow through and do it.
This is not the first time that an agent has given me a road-map to helping my buyer craft an offer than the seller would accept. "My seller" he tells me "says that if you're willing to meet these terms, he'll accept your offer".
I confer with my buyers, we modify our offer to meet their terms... and what do they do? What do they DO, I ask you? I think you already know what they did. They did not accept our offer, but moved the cheese.
This perturbed my buyers, understandably, and even though the seller has since decided to return the cheese to its original location ... my buyers have decided to move-on, as it's left a bad taste in their collective mouths. The liked the property, but they didn't love the property. And now, they'd rather find something without a foul flavour.
If'n you say you're gonna do it... y'all should oughta do it. Just my humble opinion.
