Beware, they are out there. Heck, you may be one of them yourself at times. I know I have been.
A two legged “buyer”.
Don’t trust them!
Even worse, is a one legged buyer.
It takes 3 legs to buy a home.
Those 3 legs go by the names of Ready, Willing and Able.
Let me explain; There’s a million dollar home around the corner from me. Water views, pool, the home looks like something out of Gone With The Wind.
I love it. I want it. I am WILLING to buy it.
But I’m not ready to… And I’m certainly not able to.
I’m a one legged buyer.
When your selling your home; you need to be dealing with buyers that have all three legs. Missing one and your in trouble.
Ready and willing buyer – won’t get qualified for a mortgage.
Ready and able buyer – is gonna low ball you and only pay less than what he home is worth.
Willing and able buyer – has a house to sell or waiting on a tax return.
And this goes for sellers too.
An overpriced listing is not willing to sell.
A short sale listing is not able to sell.
Having a professional Realtor® assisting you though out the process (whether selling or buying) can guide you past the 2 legged customers and get you where you want to go, smoothly.
