Today's Market

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Kinard Realty

This is one I have to share! I have a house listed- New Construction- Beautiful Plantation Style home. Priced at $269,900.00. Got a call this morning from the seller. He took buyer to the house and showed them the house. Also, told them his bottom dollar. Then called me and wanted me to call the buyer because the buyer wanted me to reduce my commission. This buyer told me I wasn't deserving of the set commission. She stated that since 2 Realtors weren't involved she felt I should reduce to reflect one real tor instead of 2. I explained to this buyer that the seller paid my commission and that this commission was agreed upon between me and the seller. I explained that if my commission was the deal breaker that I would reduce my commission by 1% which the seller felt was more than fair. This buyer told me I didn't deserve a commission of this amount. She said that in case I hadn't notice the market stunk ( not her words) and that if she didn't buy the house within the next 3 months it would sit there and would not sale. She continued to tell me in case I didn't know that houses were appraising for less in the last 6 months and who was to say this house was even worth what this guy was asking..... I was ready to explode! I didn't though- I kept my composure and get this! At the end of our joyus conversation she said: " If I decide to buy your house, I will get me realtor to write it up." How's that! I can't wait to see this contract!!!!!
