What to do if your neighbor doesn’t sell, a local real estate agent says.
“There are some things you can do to keep your neighbor from selling,” the agent says on ABC News’ “Good Morning America” today.
“One is to say, ‘Hey, look, I’m going to take you on a trip.
We have a real estate company in town and we’re going to have an agent for you.’
If you can get him to say yes, you can go ahead and do it.
If he doesn’t, then go ahead, you’re going out of your way to try to make sure you get your neighbor to sell.”
The agent, who has worked with families in the community for decades, said she advises those who sell to have a good conversation with their neighbors, and ask questions like, “Do you want to buy this home, or are you going to buy something else?”
She also advises people who have been told that they can’t sell to consider taking it a little further, saying, “If you don’t know what’s going on, just say you don.
I�m just going to sell it.'””
If somebody doesn�t like what you�re saying, don�ter just say, �Hey, you have to say you want the home, we’re selling it.
I�m just going to sell it.'”
