Home Buyer’s Advice for A Client From You?!
Alright this is deja vu for a client I had that was so similar to my associate’s issue today I just have to share it. Warning all real estate agents who
give advice to other real estate agent’s clients, it just is not an appreciated practice.
Today was Open House day in Rhode Island real estate and my associate called me up right afterwards in a slight rage and needed to vent obviously. His clients had come back from open houses and had found the ‘perfect home’. Yes it was overpriced and I knew the house. The sellers were totally excited.
The selling real estate agent (notice I emphasize SELLING) told his clients that the house would be lower next week, his clients would do a contingency clause on their house and his clients could probably get a bridge loan until their two (2!) homes sold. Well he was so furious he could not contain himself.
Please clients Keep Your Finances to Yourself when talking to other Real Estate Agents that do not represent you. It is so important that home buyer’s advice for you as a client comes from Your Real Estate Agent and not someone that is just SELLING!
Your finances are confidential and not to be shared with another agent than the one representing you. Revealing your personal information gives the other side an edge when negotiating the house of your dreams. Home Buyer’s Advice for A Client From You?!
