Assuming you can read minds in a real estate transaction is a futile effort, and today I’d like to explain why.
In my time as an agent, I’ve noticed an interesting trend among buyers and sellers: They think they’re clairvoyant. In other words, they think they can read the minds of the other party.
A seller, with little (or no) evidence, might take one look at a buyer’s offer and assume that they know their intentions for the home. They might think, “This buyer is just going to turn around and re-sell my property for a profit.”
Buyers can easily be guilty of this too. If, after an inspection, they find that there’s a major issue with the home, they may jump to the conclusion that the seller knew about it all along.
“Don’t approach real estate transactions with a sense of paranoia.”
The bottom line is this: Don’t approach real estate transactions with a sense of paranoia. I can tell you from experience that most of the buyers and sellers I’ve encountered as an agent are good people.
If you have any other questions, would like more information, or would like my guidance in pursuing your real estate goals, feel free to give me a call or send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
