Buying a Knoxville home for sale is stressful. It’s a large investment. There are a lot of moving parts. And, there are a lot of emotions.
Realtors understand that buyers can get a bit whacky throughout the process. Still, there are some things that buyers do that are altogether crazy and that can seriously impede their home search.
Here are 4 things Knoxville realtors want you to stop doing.
There are some buyers out there that are crazy nit picky. They can take any house and find 10,000 things wrong with it. Nothing is ever right, every house has a problem.
When a realtor encounters a buyer like this it can be frustrating. In cases when a buyer is nit picky, a realtor only want a buyer to understand that many things that a buyer see wrong with a home can be easily fixable.
Things like paint, flooring, among other things can be easily fixed. If the price is right on a home to take into account these changes, there is nothing wrong about having to do it yourself. Knoxville realtors just want buyers to see the potential in homes without picking apart every detail.
Another thing Knoxville realtors want you to stop doing is lollygagging. Oftentimes, buyers will take so long to make up their mind, they end up missing out on a home. Then, a buyer is full of regret.
When a market is competitive, realtors want buyers to know time is of the essence. Even when realtors let their clients know about the current market climate, many buyers still will drag their feet, only to regret it later.
Real estate transactions are complicated. Your realtor deals with the business day in and day out. This is not to say that you don’t know anything about real estate, but you hire a realtor to help you, so let them.
Sometimes it can be tough for realtors when they deal with a client who thinks he or she knows everything. When a client acts like they know more than the realtor, they often miss out on good advice. Before you turn down advice from your agent, it’s important to listen to what your agent has to say.
Finally, the last thing Knoxville realtors want you to stop doing is making the whole process about you. Realtors know that buying a home is a big deal for a buyer, there is a lot going on and a lot to juggle.
Still, when it comes to writing a contract, you need to remember you’re not the only one involved in the transaction. There is a seller, too, who is selling their house and they have as many wants and needs as you do.
Real estate negotiations are about compromise. You should get most of what you want and you’re entitled to it. Just don’t forget, there are other people involved as well. You’ll send a seller running the opposite direction when you only think about yourself.
