How to Tell Your Dealing with a Fake Seller

Many buyers launch themselves into the real estate world not knowing the first thing about buying a home. There are those that are old pros at it but for many people it's only their 1st or 2nd time buying a home. Even so, it may have been years between the 1st and 2nd purchase. There are somethings to equip yourself  and knowledge you can gain to help in the home buying process.

First of all, you don't want to have to deal with a fake seller. It seems absurd that there may actually be a seller not serious about selling but it does happen. Some of these sellers don't even know they really are not serious but show it in their actions.

You don't want to waste your time on these sellers. Having a strong buyers agent on your side can also help guide you in the right direction if you find a home you truly love but unwilling sellers of that home.

Sellers that start with a very high price that are typically not competitive with the area or the market are not that serious a seller. They are usually testing the market just to see if they can get what they want from the home. They usually don't have actually move but may be willing to test the market and see what they could possibly get from the home.

A fake seller will also not be a cooperative when it comes to negotiations and appointments. Most motivated sellers are willing to work with any buyer through negotiations. Fake sellers typically get too emotionally involved and can't separate the business side from the home side of the transaction. They tend to get frustrated and angry that a buyer would offer so low or that certain terms must be made. A good listing agent and buyers agent can usually defuse most situations.
