Are home buyers really liars?

An agent friend of mine was complaining because a buyer she had been working with called her Sunday evening excited with “good news” and wanted my agent friend to be the first to know. The caller had just found a house on Friday and got an accepted offer. Didn’t my friend feel special? She asked if it had the four bedrooms they were looking for. “Nope, we got three bedrooms.” She asked if it was two-story contemporary home. “Nope, single story ranch home, it’s beautiful.” The agent wanted to know if it was in their target area of South Temecula. “Ah, no, actually we found a great deal over in French Valley! There are some amazing home deals over there.” My agent friend congratulated them and quietly hung up the phone before screaming at the top of her lungs, ‘buyers are liars!'”

I am sure this scenario plays out time-and-time again. Agents whine to one another at how much buyers will say one thing but end up doing something else, showing no loyalty. They blame their buyers, they blame the internet, they blame other agents who ‘stole’ their clients

    No kidding. When I was shopping for a house… I kept telling my realtor that I wanted a house in southern temecula and she kept trying to show me homes in menifee (her own listings). She would get upset that I refused to go look at these homes. And I bet she wonders why I didnt buy from her.
