In real estate there are many who like to talk. They may be talking about how much how they can afford. They may be talking about how much how much they are willing to pay for a particular property.
Key point: In real estate to be considered serious it is necessary to have it in writing.
If you are a prospective buyer, get that loan pre-approval with a written letter. Your real estate agent will know you are a serious prospective client.
If you are a buyer and find that house or condo you like, put an offer in writing. Don't ask your real estate agent to call with a verbal offer. A written offer is a serious offer - most of the time.
Sometimes the written offer is a low ball offer which is not always a bad thing. A reasonable low ball offer will get the process going. When buyer and seller are communicating (through their Realtors®), then there is hope of a deal.
