Courtesy Helps Buyers and Sellers
From preparing for an open house to proper pricing, there are many things that first time homebuyers and sellers need to learn. However, buyers may benefit the most from being polite when it comes to touring and making an offer on a home.
Because the real estate market is currently plagued with falling home values and a glut of unsold properties, those who can remain cool could win out. I’ve seen it happen time and time again where well-mannered buyers have won bidding wars with lower offers simply because they were pleasant, according to the source.
Sellers may also benefit from good manners, and those willing to go above and beyond may set themselves apart from the pack. Offering restaurant gift certificates or tickets for a sporting event may be the gesture that puts a property on the top of a buyer’s list.
