Second time around is the charm! Can you believe it and I didn't say Yes...no, i said you will have the house if my seller says you have the highest and best offer and likes the terms. Yes, again another multiple bid situation on a great home in North Kingstown, RI 02852. Now this is not the first buyers or the first multiple bid situation....the last buyers had numerous issues that could not get resolved due to selling their present home. So my sellers moved on, it is a pick me up and dust myself off instance. Until you make it through the inspections, appraisal and bank commitment that house closing day remains out there as your goal.
It still remains a buyer's market in North Kingstown and other South County towns. But what is it about having a buyer pre- screened and pre-qualified that still remains so hard for some real estate agents to do? Taking buyers out without knowing what they can afford - it just is not good business. It is not fair to the buyers. Everyone wants, needs and desires to know what they can afford for a home.
It is unusual the number of buyers' calls I have received lately on North Kingstown listings where the buyers had no idea what they could afford but assured me they could buy the house but wouldn't sit down with me about it. Not happening, not showing the house to you. You are disrespecting my sellers and me by not being ready, willing and able to buy. It is sad to think buyers will be so stubborn - it is a painless process to go through. My business time and my sellers time is more valuable than what you seem to think. So unfortunately, these lost in space buyers miss out on the golden opportunities in homes right now.
But these home buyers will not. They took the time to know what they can afford by sitting with a loan officer and then decided how much of a mortgage payment they wanted every month. Then these buyers determined the town, North Kingstown, they wanted to raise their family in and lastly they called me by going on line to find a North Kingstown realtor. They said they knew we would work well together from my weblogs they read. It is a wonderful thing this on line world of real estate. So somewhat like marriage the second time around can be the charm...if the buyer and seller are a great match all around...time and sorting out of this process is what makes this real estate world go round. Second time around is the charm!
