This Will Not be Here for Long......Do I Have Your Attention?

How many times have you made this statement to a buyer and they just did not listen. This past weekend I sent a client information on a property that was right up their alley. They are horse enthusiasts who want to own acreage in the country. They prefer to have some form of home standing on the property but the acreage is the most important thing to them. The property I sent them was 9.5 acres with a 2200sqft house listed in the country of Kershaw county for $74,900. The price is not a typing error.

The land alone would have sold for more than the asking value of the entire property, much less the home sitting on the property. When I emailed the report to my clients, I included the plain, simple message that this one would not be on the market for long. It had only been on the market for 2 days when I sent the report.

My clients called me ecstatic about the find and definitely were highly interested in making an offer. I told them that we should immediately go and view the property and then be ready to make an offer if they were still excited about the place. They said that they would have to wait until early next week. I advised them that if they were interested, they should go as soon as possible, and again let them know this one would not last.

Today I had to call them and let them know that the property now has a pending contract and is now sold. I told them that I would keep an eye on it, in case the deal fell through but for now you have lost it. So, then I had to listen to my clients kick themselves for a while because they did not listen. It's not likely that they will see another deal like this one, but I'm willing to bet that the next one won't slip through their fingers.
