As a seller, anticipating these tactics will help you decide if you have the time to say know or if the cost of saying no is worth it!
I have seen buyers in a buyer’s market attempt to go back after the contract is signed, inspection completed, financing in place and make additional requests (demands is a better word here).
I have observed buyers demand additional personal property be thrown in "or it is a deal breaker.” I am not an attorney so this is not a legal opinion, just a personal opinion, but once a buyer has proceeded beyond the point of all contingencies, there is an enforceable contract in place.
I have seen sellers make repairs although the contract was “as is.”
I have witnessed buyers coming back later and asking for closing assistance after the contract has been in place for some time.
I have had seller clients comply with some of these demands where I would have preferred to tell them to hit the road.
But it is not my job to make the decision, rather to follow my client’s direction.
As a seller in the Rockledge, Melbourne and Viera Florida areas, you can be prepared and anticipate these buyer market tactics.
