Being a good poker player requires bluffing.
False threat or claim intended to deter or deceive someone.
This is not a recommended tactic in Real Estate.
And it’s never a good time to bluff during negotiations.
Recently, it happened with a buyers agent who was under contract. This is a deal killer was stated a couple of times. There were many requests and stalls and 'my buyer is thinking about it' and requests for extensions. And then a signed release which she planned to take back right away.
This was after the seller took care of all the minor requests.
A few hours later, the agent emailed asking for another minor thing, thinking the seller would want to continue since we were a couple of weeks from the closing date.
The seller signed the release and accepted a backup offer.
Not now, not ever is it a good time to bluff!
