This is an interesting question that I am asking my readers: You take a listing, you receive an offer, you convey that offer to the Owner…and then along comes another agent whose Buyer has indicated interest and that agent always asks: What was the offer that came in?
Is it me or is that a common question? Many agents I have spoken to will give out a range or some will flat out tell you what the first offer is! I always learned that you NEVER give out a range or the price. I am also asked: Is that offer from your Buyer? It’s almost like the other agent does not want to work to present an offer – they figure they are wasting their time. I, on the other hand, am very competitive and think my offer is always the best, even though I have lost a time or two, or three. So is it unethical or unprofessional? Whichever it is, it’s wrong! The first Buyer deserves to be treated the same way that Buyer #2 or even #3 or whomever wins is treated.
So let’s try to be good to each other, let’s be REALTORS!
Until Next Monday…
