Deals Not Done & Who Is Cashing Out Next

01 December 2016

In my office we have a white board where agents post their recent sales. It includes the address, list price, sold price, number of offers and who represented the Buyer and the Seller. The board I wish we had is the wall of deals not made: Deals Not Done. These would offers prepared and presented in multiple offer situations for clients and who did not get the deal, because that would be very revealing, too. Recently I represented Buyers for a lovely home that sold for well over list price. There were 6 offers all together. There had been 7, but one dropped out I assume because of the competition. The next night, a colleague texted me at about 9 PM to say she was sitting in a car, waiting, and was representing one of 20 offers on a property that was a “first time buyers” home, on a busy street in the far east end of Toronto. It sold for over $900,000. These are just anecdotal stories: we all have them. You’ve heard them.
