You want to sell your house in
town, and you are fortunate because buyers have made you an offer that you
couldn't refuse. Once the ink dried on the contract forms, however, it seemed
like everything threatened to come unraveled.
Once the buyers' earnest money check cleared
their account, they came up with a list of concerns that never occurred to their
structural expert. Their fears and demands caused you to see them more as an
adversary rather than the sweet young couple who want to start a family in your
house. How could the atmosphere have changed so quickly?
You should know that buyers and sellers are both
susceptible to different forms of "temporary insanity"--"Buyers'
Remorse" and "Sellers' Remorse". Fortunately neither one of these
conditions is contagious to Realtors. An important part of our job is to help
our sellers and buyers through their buying or selling jitters with
understanding and humor.
