In today’s highly competitive seller’s market where there are more buyers than there are listings for them to purchase, some sellers may feel like the ball is in their court.
And they would be right when it comes to choosing which offer to accept, the closing date, or even which improvements the seller is willing to make to the home prior to selling.
One thing to remember though is that there is always a line that shouldn’t be crossed.
Interest rates could change, financing might not go through, theappraisalmight not come back at the price that you have agreed to. These are all opportunities to work with your buyer to make sure that the sale still happens.
You may think that because buyer demand is high right now, that you could choose to make your buyer jump through hoops. But what happens if they reach their limit and need to walk away? You’re starting over… weeks, maybe months later… and other buyers may wonder what’s wrong with the house that the deal fell through.
The Golden Rule
We were all taught from a young age to“treat others as you would like to be treated”.This shouldn’t change once you have a buyer who seems as though they would do anything to buy your home.

"I'll start off by saying Kriste is truly an amazing person. We found a house my family and I fell in love with so we decided to start talking to some realtors. The first one we chose was definitely in no hurry to get anything done the 2nd would never answer nor return our phone calls and the 3rd was really rude and tried to force us into a contract right away. We were getting no where until the lending company referred me to Kriste. The lender said if anyone can sale your current home and get you into the new one it would be her. So we called and right away she was willing to meet. After talking to her we knew she was the one we wanted in enter into a contract with. After 4 days she sold my home and had hundreds of people talking about it online. We got to place a offer onto the new one and everything was pretty smooth after that. She truly cared about my family and I and would help with things when most people would just shut their mouth and not say a word because they don't care about anything but the sale and the money to follow. I would highly recommend her to anyone!! Not to mention she knows just about everyone in every profession and I still call her to get numbers or recommendations with things.
Thanks again Kriste!!"
