THE BUYER HAS CONTACTED ME ABOUT BUYING THE HOUSE FSBO. WHAT SHOULD I DO?

The buyer has contacted me about buying the house FSBO. What should I do?

 

 

Q …

I had a listing contract for my house expired on Sept 10th. The agent brought me an offer on Sept 9th. We still don’t have a ratified contract with the buyer. The listing agent has not asked for an extension of the listing contract. The buyer has contacted me about buying the house FSBO. What should I do?

Tell your Listing Broker about the Buyer’s Back-door approach.

Have Listing Broker inform Buyer’s Broker.

If Buyer contacts you again, tell him/her what you’ve done and tell him/her to continue bargaining in good faith thru same Buyer’s rep.

In the meantime, truly examine your options (discounting completely the sell-it-direct-to-buyer-at a lower price idea).

If you’ve been for sale 65+ days and your “optimal completion date” is within 45 days (assuming buyer is meeting that date) … offer a lower counter-proposal to buyer’s last proposal in writing thru the brokers.

Sounds like buyer has the upper hand. Make an offer that appeals to him/her, so he/she can solve YOUR problem
