You Want Us To Do WHAT To Our Sellers??
No dinner first? Maybe a little wine? No?? Just straight to The Deed? Throw our clients under the bus just because you're asking questions that YOU KNOW violate our fiduciary responsibility to our sellers?
Remember that term "fiduciary responsibility"? That means our client's interests are first!
Answering questions regarding their personal motives and situations doesn't help protect our sellers interests.
Why they're moving? Nunya bizness. Where they're moving? Ditto. What you need to know about the HOME for your buyers....MORE than happy to answer! How "motivated" are they? Their home is in MLS isn't it, so that tells you they want to sell their home. How flexible they are with moving dates? We can check on that and see what the seller says.
Either your buyers have a real interest, or they don't. The sellers don't come with the home, so let's keep the questions to the commodity involved, shall we? Anything beyond that and you're not getting an answer that will help your negotiating position. Giving you leverage is NOT meeting our fiduciary responsibility to our sellers, and we remember WHO hired us to work for them!
The bottom line, your buyers have a maximum number they'll pay, our sellers have a minimum they'll take. If it's a good day, your buyers maximum exceeds our sellers minimum and somewhere in the middle is a number they can both accept. So put your number and terms on paper and let's see if we can sell a house today!
And if not, no hard feelings. Such is real estate life. We'll continue to market for a new buyer, or you can come back for Round 2, the door will be open and we'll happily negotiate again!
