Just got off the phone with a friend of a friend. She was trying to buy a condo here in Miami and unfortunately the deal fell thru and she is going to lose her $40,000 DEPOSIT!!!
It frustrates me to hear these stories because clients come to us to help them buy or sell property and they trust we can do the job on what is most peoples largest financial transaction of their lives. Unfortunately most agents don’t take the time to learn their craft, don’t take the time to learn the details of a contract including all the contingencies inside of it. All these shows make our industry seem so easy and glamorous but I’m here to tell you it’s not. There are a lot of moving parts to each deal, and each deal is different and we as agents are the ones who need to know how to guide our clients through.
Real Estate Agents out there… take the time to learn your craft. Learn and study the details of a Sales Contract, of a Lease Contract. Put in the time not only to make yourself better but more importantly to be able to help your clients.
Buyers and Seller’s in Miami Real Estate… I know it’s easy to pick your family or friend who is a realtor to help but make sure they have experience and know what they are doing and do it full time.
After 17 years in this business it frustrates me to hear these stories especially when it could’ve been avoided.
If you are in the market to buy or sell real estate in the Miami area, feel free to Call, Text or Email me for help and I promise we will get it done together.
