Are You Kidding Me ?
I think in every business, business owners will experience those "are you kidding me ? " moments. Heck, in relationships, perhaps even more ! In the last week, we experienced two that were worth mentioning.
The offer looked pretty good until I saw in special clauses, "Seller will give $10,000 to buyer in the form of cash or money order". Hmmmm ... not sure the VA folks would like that. I cannot believe the buyers agent even agreed to put that in the agreement. Needless to say, the offer did not work out. Those folks can try to commit fraud somewhere else.
2. Short Sale Seller wants 25 percent referral fee so he can move to Florida
After a long listing presentation going over the short sale process, seller says "Great, let's do it." The last thing we require is that you give us a couple of thousand dollars from the real estate commission so we can move to Florida. We say "We will not do that." Seller says "We spoke to other agents who agreed to do that but we want to go with you due to your experience and expertise with short sales." . We say "Thanks, but no thanks."
Maybe we should have said "Are you kidding me ? " ....
What types of "Are You Kidding Me" moments have you had ?
