Selling Your Home – The offer should say "Can we talk?"

When presented with an offer to purchase their home a seller may respond in multiple ways.  Take this little quiz, please…

Which is not a common response to an offer to purchase a seller’s home?
  • “I am not going to give it away!”
  • “Who do they think they are dealing with?”
  • “Are they serious?”
  • “You are kidding me, right?”
  • “Why so much?”
If this question stumped you then perhaps you have not been involved in a transaction – ever!

Most offers should, in my opinion, be one that, if not accepted, opens the door to discussions leading to an agreement – not hostility.
