When Home Sellers Refuse to Sign a Counter Offer

When home sellers refuse to sign a counter offer, as a listing agent, what can you do? The sellers are your clients. Listing agents must maintain a fiduciary relationship with sellers. We must represent our clients to the fullest of our ability and always keep their best interests at the forefront. As a Realtor, we need to place those interests above our own.

To some agents that means agreeing with their clients and doing precisely what their clients instruct them to do. For other agents, it is a different story. You can share your experience and / or read more in my personal blog today at this link: Seller Says I Won't Sign a Counter Offer.

First-Time Sellers in Sacramento Have Questions

There were shortages at U C Davis a few months back, and probably everywhere, for the new pneumonia vaccine. Still can't even get the updated shingles vaccine; maybe next month, I hear. When I googled places to get vaccines in Kona, I was surprised… more

Sharing With Sellers That Offers Are Coming!

I am fond of saying that I could buy my own island in French Polynesia if I had received every offer that buyer's agents said they were sending over the past 40 years. Because it is true. I find buyer's agents are often FAR more excited about the… more
Elk Grove Home Will Shine With a Little TLC

We priced this home to sell for the condition it is in and for the amount of work a buyer will need to do. Many agents said they felt it showed better than they thought it would, especially since it needs new flooring throughout and paint. When you… more
