But, in the world of real estate sales, it's not always possible to have a work free day, and, today is one of those days.
A very popular sales strategy is to schedule offer presentations for several days after the property is listed. This often works well for both buyer, and seller. Buyers have the time to research their offers, and consider the best plan of attack. Sellers can be sure that we've allowed enough time for as many interested parties to tour the property as possible, and the final accepted offer will be the best one for them.
Today is "offer day" for one of my clients. While this is all well and good, there is definitely also an underlying nervous energy, even anxiety, for everyone along the way. Including myself.
There's always that nagging fear that things won't go as expected, right alongside the exciting possibility that things will end up better than you'd dare to hope!
No matter the market conditions, and no matter which place you're at in this scenario, we all feel it. And, it can be all consuming.
And, oddly, after 30+ years, this is the part of the job that is still most thrilling. The part that keeps me going.
And, seriously, the only thing I will happily give up a serene Sunday to do! :)
