So, I’m in the process of buying a house, this is my second time around. I sold my first house about a year ago, moved across the country and here I am ready to put my hard earned dollars back into the home owner thing. So far, I’m feeling a lot of frustration against the whole real estate industry. Long story short, I ask what I would think are simple questions to answer, “has the seller been presented with the offer yet”, “could we put the estimate you gave me in writing please?”, things of that sort. In a couple of cases two weeks have gone by, other than the ocassional email or call asking “where are we on ?”, I’ve given people space to do their work.
My frustration at this point is that when I get a little more insistent on getting an answer for a question I asked days ago, instead of an actual answer I get this corporate canned answer starting with “my priority is to provide you with excellent service…..”.
No offense to anyone out there, but could it possibly be that a lot of the economic problems we are seeing are a side effect of people spending more time apologizing an re-assuring us rather than doing what they are supposed to do?
Call me crazy, but if some of these people had done what they were supposed to when they were supposed to, they wouldn’t have anything to apologize for. Bottom line, I don’t know you guys, but I’d rather have results instead of apologies.
