Snowball Meets Hell

snowballs have a short lifespanWe write them for our buyers.  We get them for our sellers.

Offers that have a snowball's chance in Hell of getting to an accepted state unless someone has a quick dose of reality!

The offers that are WAAAAAAAAAAAAAY too low in price despite the home already being priced to move.

The offers that ask for every financial concession possible.  Closing cost help?  Sure, I'll take some of that!  Seller, how 'bout you pay for a home warranty and throw in some jack for my title insurance too!

Offers that ask for things not listed in the MLS offering.  That super expensive hot tub?  How about we say you throw that in without asking for more money?  That deck furniture and grill look pretty sharp too!  And ya know, I've always wanted a zero turn mower!!

These are the type of offer terms that set the seller's teeth on edge right from the start.  The temptation is there to just REJECT the offer within 10 minutes of receipt despite our best efforts to smooth the waters. 

At least counter, who knows what happens next?

But the feeling is there, that offer has a snowball's chance in Hell of ever getting to terms.  The saying that "it doesn't hurt to ask" isn't always true.
