So, today was a rough day but ended on a high note. It was a long deal, trying to buy a house in Santa Barbara.
I am really exhausted, but I still am satisfied, though this made me remember, that a real estate agent has to be educated in psychology. Knowing how to communicate with your clients, especially once they start to get angry and annoying for no reason, is an important skill set to have.
It was all going well until the buyer realized that seller didn’t disclose that pipes in the toilet have to be completely replaced.
This basically made my client was furious, both at the seller and at me. I really did not have a clue that seller is hiding something because I figured the house inspection would discover any issues.
Anyways, he started to accuse me that I wanted to scam him, saying this and that, and I was basically really confused and did not know how to react at the moment. (more…)
