Response from Paul on 03/01/2013
Unfortunately this young former client felt as though his opinions were not considered. As a veteran of 40 years, I felt responsible for guiding a first time buyer toward the properties with the best value. None of the homes I showed him were my listings. As far as fighting for price, I was able to secure a 4.5% discount from list price and an additional 3% at inspections, in a market which is up 5% over last year. I also advised him not to buy it because of an incurable defect unearthed by the home inspection. It sold a week later for more money to another party. I empathize with this homebuyer with no Real Estate experience, who clearly doubted my judgment, thus I released him from his contract at no cost or obligation… He explicitly acknowledges that I know the business and the area, though he was not comfortable for whatever reason, which I accept. He would probably be better served by a facilitator than a buyer’s agent… We wish him well…
