on paper.” Don’t be specific about where you are with other prospective buyers. Buyers may be inquisitive as to why your home has not sold yet, and you can tell them you are waiting for the perfect buyer (like them!). Almost invariably they will ask for the lowest price you will take, or if the price is negotiable. Let them know you had not much time to think about it. In turn, ask what price they had in mind, adding “as long as the offer is negotiable.” Dealing with the buyers, keep this objective in mind. Answer questions thoughtfully but vaguely, without revealing much. Managing your responses by asking them questions in return works well in the situations discussed above. Always attempt to get the other party to reveal their thoughts. On a side note, some real estate agents will want information from the listing agent. If a buyer agent contacts your agent, he may be looking to exchange sensitive information to get the sale. Have a discussion with your agent so you can trust him or her in all phases of the sale.
