It must be the local market here but I am curious if any other agents/brokers experiance this same scenerio.
A property is on the market for 30 or 60 days, you get your buyers in and they like it.
The offer is written and you call to let the listing agent know that an offer will be coming his/her way.
They then tell you "oh o.k., I am supposed to be getting 1 or 2 more contracts on that property today as well"
My gut feeling is that they are not telling the truth, only trying to create a false sense of urgency in the home.
Out of the last 10 homes I have worked with buyers on I would say that 7 of these have played out to be the same story I told you above.
Some are accepted, some want more money and the buyers decide to keep shopping around, the funny part is that the same home with all that activity and offers will still be active and on the market for weeks afterwords.
Does anybody else experiance this? If so how do you handle it when you are told this?
