I have closed over 125 sales in the past 3 years. I communicate and advise clients for a living. If a buyer won’t call you and talk, or respond to other forms of communication, it’s tough to close the deal. I guess it shows how motivated someone is. Lately I seem to waste my time with buyers that want the best deal, but aren’t willing to pull the trigger when I find it for them. If you are not going to respond to a good deal, how are you going to buy it?
Something I have said before still holds true….”You can either get the best house for a fair deal, or the best deal on a fair house.”
I would like to add to that “You won’t get either if you won’t respond.”
Another quote that is relevant in today’s market is “Be fearful when everyone is greedy, and greedy when everyone is fearful”.
I would add to that “This is a fear driven market, and those buyers that take advantage will prosper. Not communicating with your agent and being indecisive will not get you the best deal.”
The best deals are selling in the first 7 days on the market, and if you are not able / willing to react that quick, you aren’t going to be the buyer of the best deal.
Some other quotes that apply to our market….
“In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure.”
“If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten!”
