I had a call from a possible new client yesterday, who said she had two “hypothetical” questions to ask me, which I gladly agreed to answer:
1. Could I guarantee she’d get her downpayment back if she changed her mind and decided to back out of a contract?
2. Did I have a good enough relationship with any bank or mortgage lender so I could guarantee she would get turned down for a mortgage if she didn’t want to go through with a deal?
And then after discussing my fee and responsibilities to her during the transaction, she asked another question:
3. Was I willing to wait until closing to receive my full fee, rather than receiving half at contract as I normally would?
How crazy do you think I am, after you ask me #s 1 & 2?
