Playing Chicken in the Richmond VA Real Estate Market
Did you ever play chicken
when you were young and "invincible?" I remember playing a version in a swimming pool but I never had the death wish of trying it in a car. However, I certainly have developed nerves of steel and can hold my own when it comes to playing chicken in the Richmond VA real estate market.
No matter if you are a buyer or a seller, it is normal for you to feel excited and anxious about negotiations on an offer or home inspection items. You start asking your Richmond VA Realtor
, "did you hear anything yet?" or, "can you call for a status update?" The simple answer is: I can call, but I won't.
You see, when negotiating, the first one to swerve loses. If I start calling the agent on the other side of the transaction they will realize that you are becoming more and more invested in the property and that gives them the upper hand. What is the saying...Loose Lips Sink Ships? It is TRUE!
So what are you to do? You play the best round of chicken that you can and you let the opposing team break first. You can be as nervous as you want to be, you can contact me anytime to share your feelings, but DO NOT let them see you sweat. The minute you do, they have just called your tell.
Remember, any great Richmond VA real estate agent
will keep you informed at all times. The minute I hear something I will let you know. I PROMISE. Believe it or not, I am dying to know just as much as you are because I want what YOU want! My job is to either get you the most money for your property or your dream home for as little money possible. Playing chicken in the Richmond VA real estate market
is the best strategy to obtain those goals!
