58. The Hunt

The Seller: 

Why are we selling?  Don’t tell her about the divorce, that makes it look like the price is negotiable.  Just say he accepted a job transfer.  That’s a good reason, yeah, say that.   

The Buyer: 
Price seems high—for the location, I mean.  It’s definitely more than I’d like to pay.  I can afford to offer full-price, what with my inheritance, but they don’t need to know that. 

The Realtor: 
My clients are firm on price.  It’s a good value, well-maintained, nice neighborhood, good schools.  Have you seen the comps?  The price is where it should be.  When are you writing the offer? 

trifecta writing challenge:  same story, 3 points of view  


  1. People can really screw up a good sale... just think what would happen if they opened their mouths BEFORE it was a done deal!

  2. Everyone has something to lose. At least the realtor wants the deal done so they can get their bigger commission!

  3. Thanks for linking up to Trifecta this week. Love how you captured the lack of full disclosure on all three parties. Hope to see you back again soon.

  4. I would hope that the buyer had the sense to get a buyer agent!! Otherwise, everything is subject to be told to the seller.

  5. Oh how I hate the negotiations thing ... could be that I'm one of those people who cannot hold back information regardless of the potential gain!

    Very fun interpretation of the challenge.

  6. I always love how every story has so many different perspectives!
