Paranoia is not good in a client…Unless You are a Shrink (or a Real Estate Agent)

Paranoia is not good in a client unless you are a mental health professional or a real estate agent!  

The definition of paranoia is “a psychological disorder characterized by delusions of persecution or grandeur.” As a real estate agent I have seen it many times.  As a buyer and seller of several houses I may have experienced it as well!

Much as a parent almost always sees their child as magnificent, many sellers see their house or condo as splendid or grand!  Never a flaw - just plenty of character!

Sellers sometimes very often view any buyer prospect as someone not to be trusted.  Some may go so far as to require their real estate agent be present for showings.  It happens on the other side of the transaction as well.

While buyers are always urged to have inspections conducted by qualified professionals some buyers are just certain, even after a clean inspection, the sellers are hiding something!

Note to "deal seekers" (novice investors): Understand the difference between upgrades and repairs - and the cost.

A real estate transaction is a major event in ones life.  When it comes down to real estate perhaps a little paranoia is almost always present and not such a bad thing!
