Maine Real Estate For Sale !


What's Taking So Long In A Response, Yes Or No On ME Property Offer?

The buyer of real estate has made an offer on a ME property.

And even though it has only been twenty minutes, what is taking so long in getting the contract signed? Things sewn up to get on with the show. Keep things moving on down the line to get to a real estate closing on time.maine lighthouse photo

Couple of property buying scenarios, the offer was so far off the mark the agent, broker, REALTOR thinks first how to present it.

Does not want a kill the messenger situation Colonel Mustard.

Because he or she is picked for the one to be the bearer of bad news.

And drop the shoe, wait for it, here it comes suddenly active volcanic reaction.

Even though as the listing agent or broker for the property, you explained it all before to the seller.

Up front at the kitchen table during the fill in the blanks.

This can and does happen in a Maine real estate sale.

Be prepared, just doing my job. Expect it.

Or the real estate buyer's offer is pretty decent, even full price or higher. If others are sniffing around the Maine property listing. Ready to put the trigger and sign on the dotted line of a purchase and sale agreement.

But still delays happen. Because people have lives that intertwine. Fast, slow, or stop in dead their tracks like traffic. Seller are not parked in a chair, staring at a phone waiting for it to ring. Don't own, do cell phone. Snail plenty mail is fast enough Mister Man.

Or carrying a cell phone with a rotary dial. In a place on the coast of Maine on vacation. Where there is less than half a bar of cell phone reception. Not automatically next to the maine victorian home photocomputer to immediately intercept at home, work. And to react to a scanned contract for a Maine real estate sale.

Faxed to them for review, discussion when out of state, far away is the situation of the day.

Or the Maine real estate buyer needs to check out a few things first.

Has made several rapid calls and the intelligence is still coming back in deathly slow.

For him to know what to do when it's counter offer time and change up the original plan to buy the Maine real estate listing.

The Maine real estate buyer with two phones in his ears, studying a monitor.

Waiting for a fax line to free up.

Two people motioning him to distract, gain his attention. Like on a stock floor of a major exchange. Surrounding with no elbow room, shoulder to shoulder and plenty of hollering. Wild hand gestures and thick layers of tension in the air building to the breaking point.

While juggling being at work, at his daughter's wedding, the funeral of a friend that starts in twenty minutes.

Where angry and dark, anxious looks at the same time are telegraphed his way without words. But barbed, broken glass sharp as a razor cutting glances hurled his way from the peeved wife. Outside the church where it's starting to rain. You forgot the umbrella, again. Like the last funeral. You, see, the maine farm countryside photofamily antsy and all in the parking lot ready to climb the steps.

What? You're still on hold?

Come on already.

It's way past time to go inside with the family all dressed in black. To hopefully find a seat not way up front before the service starts.

Get the picture? Happy wife, happy life.

He's trying, got the memo. But the devil in the details and dead air delay is not producing any. Nothing coming back when something is needed quickly or the other two Maine houses he is partial to on real estate radar could go under contract.

Be sucked off the MLS listings for sale in Maine conveyor round and round carousel. Slapped with an angled, fresh Sale Pending sticker. Or butterfly wing nut and screw twist into place on metal sign rider for all to see. What just happened in the Maine neighborhood. Dagnabbit.

     If you are in a laid-back part of the world where "Digital" is still coming into vogue, you need a healthy dose of patience!

Things move at a different pace for different people . . . . and there are times that we can do our best and the pace doesn't change.

Good luck and success.

Good morning Andy. In any kind of sales, patience is always the name of the game, but sometimes hard to come by.

Hi Andrew.  Carrying a cell phone with a rotary dial is a Maine thing?

Posted by Conrad Allen, Webster, Ma, Realtor (Re/Max Professional Associates) over 6 years ago

Fred ... We're digital... just without the traffic, crime, noise.

LL ... It's why there is a break down lane, the other side of the rumble strip. To catch your breath.

Noah ... Your name sake was 500 and took 100 years, completed the ark and two of everything for the boat ride. He knew patience, was good predicting weather and the 100 year storm track with out radar.

JP ... Maine ... people's life move at different speeds. Helping the buyer and seller not jump to conclusions because of a reaction coming speed of thought quickly. That is all part of the expectations... like a doctor, banker, lawyer, REALTOR does in life. People may not like delay but explain why there is one is important. No news makes the mind whirl, rpm into the red zone. Like waking up BOING at 3am with lots on the mental conveyor belt going around and around.

CA ... They've been around a while, after the tin can and a string prototype was replaced. People still say dial such and such a number... even though it is tap tap to connect, reach out and say hey!
