Tip When Looking at Homes with Your Agent7/20/2018
We all need to be mindful when we are looking at homes, in today's days of advanced, high tech gadgets (Echo, Nest, Google Home, audio recorders, etc.), that sellers could very well be listening to us when in their home. We need to remember not to discuss likes, dislikes, and any potential offer information while in the home - we can have the discussion outside. If we discuss these things while in the home and the sellers are listening, we risk losing our negotiating position and you do not want that to happen. An example might be that seller is motivated and willing to take a much lower price but if they hear you say that you would end up paying full price if they don't accept your initial offer, you've just lost out as sellers will then hold out for their asking price. Bottom line is let's be careful and protect ourselves!
