Buyers are liars — we all know this is true, My real-life examples I will share with you. Let’s begin with a man who I met in the fall At a sunglass kiosk in the back of the mall.
I showed him eight homes in the month of November; When I followed up, it’s like he didn’t remember. “Hey, Jon! It’s me; are you back in L.A.? Do you have some time to see that listing today?”
A glimmer of hope — but already I know His voice mail picked up three times in a row. He never left; he has been dodging my calls … What a waste of time and a kick to my balls!
Just a week to this day, my friend hit me up. He wanted a condo for his girlfriend and pup. I sent him some homes … and two hours later He’s repped by his cousin, who is also a waiter.
At my open last Sunday, this couple waltzed through: A nice older lady and her husband named Drew. He wanted to write; his words cut like a knife. “I don’t make decisions; talk to my wife.”
Drove this woman around for a couple of weeks With a kid and her beagle, cleverly named “Squeaks.” My whole weekend was wasted on this pointless hunt; She was six months in debt, plus Squeaks crapped in the front.
I have one buyer left for a six-month lease, So I picked up the phone and dialed my niece. She answered and spoke the words we all fear: “Thanks, but I’ll wait until the new year.”
