How many ways can you say the same thing in the same language?
The most important part of the deal making process is the manner in which you communicate.
Whether you’re a buyer-speaking-to-a-broker, or a seller-speaking-to-a-buyer, or a broker-speaking-to-an-attorney…
You need to make sure you’re saying precisely what you mean to be saying in the way the person you’re talking to will understand exactly what you’re meaning to say.
Whew! (That’s a mouthful). Did I communicate that correctly and effectively?
I believe that a large number of “deals that should’ve happened” never happened because of a breakdown in the communication and not because there isn’t a desire to achieve a meeting of the minds.
The most effective thing to do is to SIMPLIFY the message and say exactly what you mean.
That way, nothing will get lost in translation.
The more we peel the layers off an onion, the more it seems to stink (and make us cry).
And the less it looks like an onion!
What do we expect to find at the CORE?
A nugget? A pearl? Or are we looking for an excuse?
As a buyer, you start out with a clear idea of what you want. You search, search, search… and search some more. You may find some places that are just “fine” and some that are just not!
If you’re lucky enough to find what you’re dreaming of within your price range (and you will know it when you see it), just BUY it!
Don’t question yourself. No second guesses.
Have your agent negotiate the best deal for you and take the plunge!
I’ve met more people who have regretted NOT buying their dream home than people who regretted buying their nightmare apartment.
