Putting Response Deadlines on Home Sellers and Home Buyers

Collier Swecker video blogs the pros and cons of putting response deadlines in home purchase offers and counter-offers. While I have never met a home purchaser or home seller that was not somewhat anxious to hear a response from the other side, many buyers and sellers are frequently putting 12 hour to 18 hour deadlines in offers and counter-offers. Home sellers and home buyers should be cautioned to use response deadlines only when absolutely necessary or when they and/or their agent is sure that it is a smart strategic move that will assist them in achieving the negotiated outcome they desire. If you have any questions or comments about response deadlines for home buyers and home sellers, email me at Collier@MegaAgents.com or visit my website at www.MegaAgents.com.
