Just Write It


In the past couple of weeks there have been THREE different agents who have shown my listings, requested the disclosure paperwork and each one said they were writing an offer.


Submit offer to Margaret Rome

One has emailed and called more than a half dozen times! They want to update me.... to tell me they were preparing an offer, asking if  I wanted a LOI (letter of intent) and commenting on the buyer's concerns. They have seen  the property on 3 different occasions and each visit they stayed for over an hour.


Another agent gave me all the  the terms verbally and said they would submit on Tuesday (that Tuesday has passed) and they just called to see if the property was still available.



The third told me definitely they were buying, definitely they were writing and definitely that I should not take any other offers.

She even said I had her WORD.


So glad that I did not call the sellers.


If you are going to write an offer...write it.


Just Write It.


Promises do not cut it in Real Estate. Not even if you say pretty please. 

If it is not in writing it is NOT an offer!
