I have great buyers. They have told me they like being with me. They trust me, and they want to purchase a house with me as their agent…. SO, why would they go to an open house, tell the agent they are working with me, and then proceed to put down their life story, tell the agent the particulars of the sale of their property, their various contingencies, and then ask the agent to let them know if a bid were to come in on that particular house….. Yikes!
My clients recently did this, and then they emailed me and called me to let me know… asking me to dig up as much information as I could on the house…. and then decided against it the following day… I explained to them that informing someone they are working with me is nice, but they should write down my info and not theirs! Plus there is a procuring clause so it is always my pleasure to show them any home! All done in innocence but the outcome could have been quite different…Plus, it is always my pleasure to show any home to my buyers at their convenience. That is my job! Sometimes, I know it is easier to pop by an open house on their own schedule…. but then just offer the agent’s information and not theirs!
Larchmont and New Rochelle are GREAT!
