Have you ever heard this from your real estate agent? God bless the agent that has the courage and the common sense to say it! This means they are not going to risk giving you misinformation, in what might be the biggest financial activity of your life!
I appreciate that we live in a society that wants answers and wants them now. We can be in a real big hurry for everything! Look how edgy we get when we sit at a stop light... or while we wait in line at the fast food joint, and the person in front can't decide on whether or not to "super-size" it... or we are sitting waiting for the computer screen to pop up and it has taken more than 10 seconds! TEN SECONDS!
OK... that may be the way we're going in our society, but when you are thinking about buying or selling a home, and there is information needed that may be critical in the decision making process... appreciate the agent who tells you (admits to you) that they don't know the answer, and they will research it and get back to you.
Gotta love it!
