here's some drama

My client just got a really good counter offer from the sellers. They've agreed to his terms, agreed to pay closing, and only countered $2K more than his last counter. He wants to counter back at the price he just countered at. His thinking is "I've come up way more than they've come down".

How do I tell him that that's because his original offer was horse sh*t and he's lucky they even were willing to play ball with him at such a low offer? 

Re: here's some drama

  • You can only just be straight forward with him. 

    What is your honest opinion? How long has the home been on the market?  

  • I would just tell him, you're so close to what you countered and they're paying closing which I'm sure is more than the $2k, so throw it back to him with that.

    This.  I would appreciate the honesty more than anything.  You don't want him to think you're pressuring him just to get the sale.

  • Seriously? He is willing to walk away from the deal over 2k? A difference of what, 4 cents a month on his 30 year mortgage? (ok yeah I know it isn't that small amount, but it makes a good point, doesn't it?)

    I mean, at this point it sounds like his ego getting in the way. In the end, if he is happy with everything as it is, then he signs. Period. Tell him to put the ruler away, his peepee is bigger, and sign and move on. Sheesh.

    Oh, by the way, the NAR hates it when you compare penis sizes of your client vs another client. They also hate references to peeing up sides of buildings, especially barns. You don't want to know how I know this. But OMG I could tell you stories.......

    Lol! Well, I'm not going to say anything about his peepee, so we'll just leave that out of the equation. 

    I don't think he's willing to walk away over $2K, he just wants them to come down. And then we'll be in a stalemate. The closing costs would be about $2K, so it's like he's getting it for his price anyway. But I showed the house to his son in law tonight, who liked it wayyyy better than the other house we saw over the weekend, so hopefully he says some good things.

    Oh, and the difference on his mortgage would be $10 a month. He's not concerned about that though, so maybe it is about the peepee's. Except the seller is a woman. Oh geez!
