How not to be an obnoxious buyer

Share this Article

BrickUnderground's post yesterday on how not to be a real estate agent prompted Michael DeRosa of Halstead Property to lobby for a sequel on How Not to Be an Obnoxious Buyer.   We asked him for some tips, and he obliged:

  • Don't waste the broker's time seeing the listing four times if you're not really interested in buying it. 
  • Don't lie about your qualifications - if you're serious about buying, we'll eventually find out. 
  • Don't make ridiculously low offers. If you're fishing for the bottom, you missed it. 
  • Don't tell me the market is much worse than we both know it is. 
  • Don't use up my time only to disappear without an explanation.
