5 Questions Sandpiper Lakeland FL Sellers Should Never Answer

 

5 Questions Sandpiper Lakeland FL Sellers Should Never Answer

We have heard it many times, sellers should not be present during the showing of their Sandpiper Lakeland Fl home for sale. Sellers can intimidate the buyers. Another advantage of the seller's absence is that it gives buyer the privacy and the time to consider the Sandpiper Lakeland home as his or her own.

Sellers should leave their home during showings is to avoid trouble. This trouble can result from sellers talking to buyers and the buyer's agents. Having a conversation with the buyer or the buyer's agent can lead to low ball offers especially if the seller has answered confidential questions.

Here are the 5 questions sellers should never answer:

  • How many offers have you received

If you are not getting any offers, the buyer will surely think that there is something wrong with your home. If you have been receiving many offers and still your home is not sold, the buyers will also think that there is something wrong. Either way, you lose by answering this question.

  • How much was your highest offer?

Answering this will mean showing all your cards. This will give the buyer the idea of lowering their offer if the highest offer is relatively low.

  • How fast do you need to move?

The faster it is, the more desperate you will seem. Desperate seller get low ball offers.

  • Why are you putting your Sandpiper Lakeland FL home for sale?

Answering this question can backfire on you. No matter what the reason is, the agent and the buyers will judge you on this question and will try to use that information against you.

  • What kind of repairs have you made to the house?

There is no reason to discuss it prior to an offer, the seller’s disclosure document will do the job. After all, you don't want them wondering if your home is falling apart.

The best way to dodge this questions is to let them talk to a Sandpiper Lakeland Fl listing agent or REALTOR who will represent you. Let your agent do his or her job, shut your mouth or just leave the house.
