Telling the truth…..

I met with a family to show them a large, vacant townhouse condo in St Albert recently. They seemed to really like the unit and the gentleman was talking to me about the steps to writing an offer.

While I was explaining the process, he said “with the market flooded with homes, they should be able to offer way less”.

Now I don’t make it a policy to needlessly argue with people, but I do believe in telling the truth.

I disagreed with the gentleman by stating that: “while yes there are a few segments of the market with excess inventory, most areas are seeing offers and sometimes multiple offers if the home shows well and is priced correctly. You must first decide where this home fits into that criteria and I will help you with that.”

Well, if you could have seen the look on his face…  He did not like that. I figured he thought I was trying to rush him into purchasing. Nothing is further from the truth.

We try to give you the best information and benefit from our years of experience. We also work in the real estate market daily, so we can give you advice that may save you money when selling or secure the best home at the best price when buying.

The family never contacted me again.

Telling the truth…. sometimes its not what they want to hear, I guess.
