Why Sellers Should Avoid Talking To Other Agents And Buyers

When you decide to list your house with a real estate agency, you will choose an agent, and that agent will be your contact person. Everything that happens with the sale of your house should go through your agent, and you should avoid talking about your house to other agents. A real estate seller talking to other agents could seem innocent, but here are several things you should know about this.

You might reveal the wrong details

Most agents will not want homeowners to be home during showings for several reasons, and one reason is so the homeowners will not speak to the buyers. A homeowner might think that offering details about the house or their situation might be helpful in the deal, but the details offered might actually push the buyer away from the home.

If you want to sell your house, do not talk to potential buyers, even if you think what you are saying is innocent. You might end up revealing the wrong details about the house, and this could cause buyers to rule out buying your house. In this case, they may move on to find a different house to buy.

You might reveal your level of motivation or desperation

Secondly, if you talk to buyers, you might accidentally reveal your level of motivation, or even desperation, to sell. If buyers know you are desperate to sell, they may use this to their advantage. If so, you might end up receiving a lowball offer on your house. If the buyers had not known your desperation, they may have offered you a higher amount for your home. While you can tell your own agent your level of motivation, he or she will not use it against you when negotiating on a deal for your house.

You should refer agents and buyers to your agent

Whenever anyone asks you questions about your house, you should instantly refer them to your real estate agent. Your agent can answer all their questions in a way that will not harm the deal for you, and this is always the best way to handle this.

It is very important for you to always refer people to your own agent when selling a house, and this even includes people who drop by simply to find out if they can see your house right now. If you have questions about this, talk to your real estate agent.

About Me

A New Home by Christmas

When I was born, my parents lived in a tiny, brick home. The small house only had one bathroom. And the laundry room could be reached only by going outside and venturing to the side of the house. Thankfully, my family purchased a new home when I was in the seventh grade. The new place was approximately twice as large as the old home. We moved into this sprawling farmhouse a couple of days before Christmas. I will never forget how amazing the first few days of living in this new place felt. On this blog, I hope you will discover some tips to help you purchase your dream home by Christmas. Enjoy!
