Realtors, how do you feel about Goldilocks?
Its a little slow here so I figure what the heck, how bout some just general discussion topics?
I've gone from being a hard looker/want to buy to what I refer to as a Goldlilocks - I'm only going to buy if its "just right". I overheard a conversation at a work meeting today where the guy was relating a conversation with a realtor. I talked to him and he too is a Goldilocks though probably more committed to buying at some point (a young family guy) than I am (the more time passes the less sense it makes for me to buy).
I prefer to look at the MLS myself and so does he. We both look at the county websites and do some research of our own upfront. Drive by's etc.
I only ask to see something rarely, as I don't want to put anyone out unless I'm serious.
Its been over a year and I have had 2-3 sequential realtors slowly drift out of contact. I may have missed an opportunity or two because realtors either just can't wrap their heads around what I'm looking for and/or just lose faith.
Maybe they know its not out there and just don't want to tell me?
I do want that "yes I know it doesn't look like its perfect but I've seen it and I think you should take a look" input if a place warrants it.
Or.... just tell me my wish and price list is all wet its not going to happen and call me when I change it - something that hasn't happened although I'm beginning to feel that what I'm looking for just isn't a reality (why do I have to figure that out on my own?)
Do realtors just hate us Goldilocks? (I don't mean that in a personal way).
How can we browsers satisfy our browsing, taking our time needs and still work with an agent? Or should we just randomly call agents to see something in that occasional event? Or look with the sellers agent?
