Getting Schooled When Fishing! After finding a home my clients wished to buy, we wrote up the Real Estate Purchase Contract then sent it to the listing agent. Immediately, I get a call, saying the sellers would not accept it but might take a higher price. Agent wanted to verbally negotiate the sales price, but refused to counter in writing. I took the time to: show the property write up a good offer get signatures and submit He tried to wrap it up with a phone call. I told him to write up a counteroffer. Verbal in real estate remains and always will be hearsay and the conversation cannot be validated. He could even say it didn't happen! He's fishing and might just get schooled today!
