What goes flip-flop, flip-flop, flip-flop?

What goes flip-flop, flip-flop, flip-flop?

 

Hint-Hint:

It's not a cheap pair of rubber sandals that people wear when visiting the beach. Or a fish that gets hooked on the end of a baited line at the lake that moves side to side in an effort to get back in the water by breaking free.

 

The Answer:

A For Sale by Owner, who fails to follow through several times with a transaction because he’s not beholden to any stinkin' ethics, rules or regulations that guide our industry. Seems honesty is a bit too much to ask of him.

 

Then suddenly, like a mystical unicorn riding in on a rainbow, his 'agent' appears on the scene, changing all agreed-upon terms and conditions already outlined by seller and buyer. Negotiations go south quickly, as expected!

 

The FSBO now wants to list his house instead, after a voice whispered in his ear that he could get $150,000 more than current market value. He has a better chance of squeezing blood from a turnip, in my professional opinion!

 

Totally his choice though. Oh, there he goes…flip flop…flip flop…flip flop…

Flip-Flop Flip-Flip Flip-Flop, enters a magical "agent" flying in on a Unicorn and things go South quickly.  It is time to flush all that nonsense and get REAL.

Lesson was learned and buyers are a little more wary of the FSBO scenario now because of it, Michael Jacobs, unfortunately!

Indecision never nets good results, Will Hamm, at least, that's been my experience!

When I thought of the back and forth that took place for nothing, flip-flopping came to mind, Bill Salvatore - East Valley. Thanks for the re-blog!

FISBO's did ok in fast seller's market, now that has changed so have their ability to sell. On a side note with all the changes coming up after August 17th... here in California we will have about 30 pages or more to sell a home to protect everyone's interest... we shall see how FISBO's will turn out and how many lawsuits they will be facing for not disclosures...Endre

I don't feel bad at all watching FSBO's flip-flop their way to failure, since I know that is what happens pretty much every time, haha.

How frustrating for the buyer! I can understand being leery of FSBOs going forward. And to the flip-floppy FSBO seller, bad move buddy!

Until everything is in writing, I am skeptical of FSBO's, Endre Barath, Jr.. Somehow, most of them think they can do whatever they wish until proven wrong!

Buyers must be aware of the pitfalls of going along with a FSBO who also has someone in the background whispering in their ear, guiding them behind the scenes, changing everything at whim. Not the way to go, in my opinion, Kat Palmiotti!

Knowledge trumps wanna be's, Endre Barath, Jr. and I expect honesty when working with people. Not too much to ask, right?

When someone changes their mind several times, it means they're unsettled, Kathy Streib and boy, did he flop hard!
