  • DON'T WRITE AN OFFER ON A HOUSE UNLESS YOU ARE SERIOUS ABOUT BUYING IT!!!

    This pisses me off more then anything, you list a short sale, you get an offer, you work that offer at the bank for 2 or 3 months, you get a name specific approval for the buyer and you findout the buyer no longer wants the property, or in his case the neighborhood really went down the tubes in the last 2 month.  That's BS!!  What makes me so mad is we tied this property up with this buyer.  I'm sure we'll get another offer quick, but that's not the point we have to start this process all over again.  It's not always as easy as just doing a name change.  Why can't these buyers agents educate their buyers on proper real estate etiquette.  Do your neighborhood research before you tie up a property with a bogus offer.  By the way this was a cash buyer that bugged us every two week to see if we had the approval because they wanted a quick close so our clients moved out this weekend for them.
  • Why do some agents claim to know more then they really do?

    Isn't it funny how some agent just seem to know everything, but have done nothing.  Let me start off by saying there is a lot for me to learn and I in no way claim to know everything about real estate, but one thing that I do know quite well, not everything is short sales.  It is how I make my living and I sell quite a few of them just like many other realtors and the one thing that just drives me nuts is when an agent offers on one of my properties and they feel the need to tell me how the short sale needs to be conducted.  Or they ask what banks are involved, you tell them and they say "oh I just got a deal done with them in less then 30 days they're easy" yeah right, unless it was Wachovia.  So I ask have you done many short sale? the answer is "several" I guess several means none.  They are experts in a field they have never done anything in, how do they get away with this?  Just curious if I'm the only one out there that has experienced this.
