Default Here's why people think Realtors are idiots...

This is rich

I have a listing under contract and the buyers agent is an idiot. The contract is As-Is (with right to inspect) and a 20 day inspection contingency along with a 30 day conventional loan contingency.
Simple enough, right?

Yesterday they get the inspection. No biggie, normal small stuff for an older home. It is moot to the seller and I reviewed it even though there is no reason for me to even see it.
I get the call from buyers agent lady, and she is all upset about the little wood rot on the garage OHD frame. Ok, this doesn't affect the contract...But yes it does per the buyer's idiot agent, because the VA appraiser will see that and it will blow the deal...

What? VA appraiser?

Oh yes, the buyers have decided to use VA financing. But Ms. buyers agent...we don't have a VA contract. Oh, yeah but that doesn't matter to the seller right?

What?

Of course it matters to the seller as there are seller obligations in VA lending. And no the seller will not sign a VA lending addendum. But going forward the seller doesn't care how they pay for the house.

But the seller should make that small wood repair anyway, per buyers idiot agent. No he will not. But he should if he wants to be a nice guy and get the house closed. Incorrect, he was a nice guy when he accepted the negotiated sale price and the buyers contingencies.

Oh, I didn't mention yet...
The contract reads 20% financing. She (the idiot buyers agent) filed out the contract wrong and it should read 20% down and 80% financing.
But this doesn't matter either per the idiot. Oh hell yes it does matter. But why per Ms idiot, as long as it gets done. It matters because of the strength of the deal during negotiations...

A concept she could not grasp.

Then she called me a bully. I'm freaking laughing while writing this. A bully because she fooked up and did not do the financing math correctly on the contract and didn't include the VA financing contingency.

She then played the victim card...
It was late at night when she did the contract...bla bla bla

She also is mad because the seller provided an older survey that does not have the raised seal on it. So what? It was provided as a couertsy. Have your buyer write the 500 dollar check and order a new one if they or their lender requires it.

Then I closed the conversation by nicely reminding her that I have been nothing but helpful in this deal (she agreed) and I believe she is upset because of the little bit of wood rot. (she reluctantly agreed again).
She then said she still feels like the seller should fix this.

After all this...it's like speaking to a pumpkin.

Then she said that I should fix it. Seriously. Because you are a carpenter, right? Yes ma'am I am but I will not fix it. But why she asked...Because neither you or your buyer can afford me.

Aweshit...that got her goat.

She then said she had to go, she had a nail appointment.

My realtor when I sold my house as-is, gave away $1,500 of my money after they signed for a “light allowance” as they wanted/ had to change a 10’ wide x 6’ brass chandelier in the entrance way. My response to him -STFU. No more talking

wood rot?

oh....i'm all over this.

let's see, round trip travel of 4,000 miles, say 60 cents/mile, that's $2400.

for travel time, it'll be $50/hour, say 70 hours of driving time, that's $3500.

materials, say $200 (don't want to cheap out now, do you?).

actual labor while fixing it, say 16 hours (never quite sure what you'll find until you start digging, at $200/hour, that's $3200.

so all in for 2400+3500+200+3200=9300.

you know, i bet you could do it yourself after you move in and save a few bucks, even after buying needed tools.

Had a similar situation with one of my houses. Buyer's inspector found some sort of issue with the roof trusses and wanted me to pay to fix them. This was in a moderately hot seller's market in 2005 - hot but not crazy hot like 2020. Anyway the buyer's agent had mentioned that they buyers had been looking for houses for a while and were always too little and/or too late, so when they asked me to fix the trusses I told them the house was already priced below market (which was true) and if they didn't want to buy it I would take the house off the market, fix the issues, and relist the house for $50,000 more.

They STFU and bought it.

Sold a house in 2011. House was 4 years old. First buyer, after all inspections and contingencies changed their mind. Their realtor tried to bully me into giving back the earnest money, saying I needed to be a nice guy. I told her to eat a dick. House was off the market 2 months and in that state I could take them to court and require them to buy it. My realtor said it would be a 100% certainty. I walked with the earnest money and my realtor made his commission right there.

Next buyer has inspection done. Finds a long list of ticky tack things. This was a 4 year old house by a well regarded custom home builder. Had one door a little sticky. Wanted a “licensed a certified door technician” to inspect and repair all doors in the house. Since house was so new, the inspection reported noted light bulbs might go soon, so they wanted every light bulb replaced by a licensed electrician. Their realtor wrote this up. What? I send an email to my realtor telling him to please tell them to **** off. I was living out of state at the time. He said not to worry and he would resolve. To this day I don’t know what he did but I do know he took care of some of the things out of his pocket. He earned his commission a second time.

There are always bottom of the barrel examples out there.

You can eliminate incompetent realtors by requiring them to have minimum of at least six transactions in the past 24 months, this will thin the herd of part-time idiots.

I know a few great Realtors, but most appear to do this as a hobby.

So now I figured out why there are two realtors working to close deals between buyer & seller. One is difuss and other is motivated to close for $$$$
