No one likes a pushy salesman! It’s even worse when you are buying a

big-ticket item. You want to take your time and make sure you are making

the right decision. Consider how many “buy your new car 100% online”

options there are these days. No one wants to walk onto a car lot. It’s just

annoying.

Buying a house is typically the largest purchase one makes in a lifetime.

Now you feel like your own agent is pushing you to make a decision. It may

feel stressful, but a good buyer’s agent is pushing you for your own good

while protecting your interests along the way.

The fact is that the real estate market moves very quickly, and the right

homes sell fast. If you approach buying real estate in a leisurely manner,

you will lose out on great opportunities. Your “pushy” agent is trying to put

you in the best position to capitalize on these opportunities when they

appear:

· They push you to get a pre-approval.

· They push you to see new listings quickly.

· They push you to write an offer if you like a home.

You don’t want to miss out on a great house. Your agent will craft the offer

and subsequent agreement to include plenty of contingencies that will allow

you to cancel the transaction if you need/want to, but you need to make

quick decisions to make sure you have that option.

Your “pushy” agent is there to help you move through the process,

correctly. At times, this also means quickly. Your pushy agent is really just

trying to help you!
