Offers & Counter Offers

So, this seems like such a simple thing, right? Buyer writes an offer on a listing, seller responds with a counter offer, buyer hopefully accepts.

Got a couple right now. In the middle of counter offers.

Both were countered based upon conversations between agents regarding our respective clients.

Easy Peasy, right?

Sometimes, what seems like the simplest of things, creates more challenges.

One has a sale of home contingency that the buyers agents' broker says those buyers have to keep that contingency in place til the close of escrow. I'm saying....nope. Another offer is waiting in the wings.

Another is a straight buyer that we're working around my Sellers home of choice contingency. Again, after drafting it upon discussion....he wants to 'chat' this morning. I've got 2 other offers....I don't feel like chatting. LOL

I remind you, a career in Real Estate is not for the weak. Nor the weak minded! 
Let's see how these two pan out!

And yes, sometimes it does feel like a game of Tug-of-War!
