Actual Text Conversation On Pricing
Did I "Go Rude" ?
The following is a text conversation I had with an unknown texter on Friday 08/21/2015. I've recorded it below exactly as it was, type-os, misspellings and all. I'm not sure how I went from getting thanks to be harassing but maybe you can tell me.
7621 county rd 15, I will offer 210,k
We have an offer of 300,000. Now but thanks anyway.
Wow,, way over priced,, and thanks for responding back
Obviously not to the folks who made the offer.
That's why a bill we be introduced to the state house to hold real-estate agents accountable for over valuing homes ,,, and again thanks for replying back 210 k bottom line and that is about 20 % over actual worth
So you are a licensed appraiser? The home will be appraised for the loan and those banking laws and the appraising process leaves no room for scandle.
Well good luck
Thanks, if you want me to let you know how the appraisal goes I will be happy to do so. Who knows you may be right on the money.
Do you always harass those who disagree with your business ethics ? Or am I just the lucky one ?
I'm serious, I've been surprised by appraisals before. You could be correct.
I just wanted to note that Realtors do not set home prices, only the seller can do that. Most Realtors like myself show the seller 3 recent home sales of very simular homes and 3 comparable home now on the market in their neighborhood or as close as we can find. Then we suggest a listing price. 9 times out of ten the home owner thinks his/her home is better than anything we show them and they over price our value to a tune that makes most of us Realtors roll our eyes but we know after a month or two they will get the idea when no one makes an offer. We don't like over pricing any more than you because we don't get paid unless there is a sale and we have families to feed as well.
Ok, maybe the last sentence or two was unnecessary (as most sellers I work with are very reasonable) but I was still trying to stay on this persons good side as they do wish to purchase a home and they may actually have a budget of $210,000 which would be a good sale.
