Thank you. I won't go for the contract if it gets into a bidding war as I know what I want to spend and that is all that I will offer. Well before I put an offer in on this one, I asked how long until I hear back and she said she is hoping to hear back today. So I hope so because I told her I cannot wait until Monday.

No, but thank you anyway. I really do not mind; as those are your opinions and not facts

I just heard back from the realtor and the seller doesn't want to make a decision yet! He is going away and will not be back until next Friday. Since I really like this contract I told the realtor I want to keep my offer in. But I did tell her that I will be checking for other contracts that are similar to this one. And should I find one before the seller of the other contract makes a decision, I will be withdrawing my that offer to make a new one. She completely agreed and even asked me if there were any others that caught my attention and told me to keep checking. Her attitude was different just now and I like her better now. I wonder if she saw this thread lol.

I'm just happy I didn't become a realtor!


You just need to put in a respond by x time when making an offer. I did the same thing and it worked perfectly. Good luck

And that is the crux of the matter. I think the brokers are being far more gracious than most would be in this situation.

Dean,
I agree. If i was a broker dealing with a person who changed their mind everyday i just wouldn't take them seriously that they're looking to buy.
IMHO.

This is a free country so I can change my mind as many times as I like until I decide what to do with MY money. If a broker doesn't want to take me serious, that is fine by me. I will just take my business elsewhere.

You're right, it's your prerogative to change your mind and hop from contract to contract. But don't be surprised when it takes longer and longer for the brokers to get back to you. It's called burning bridges. They have people who are seriously ready to enter the process of buying DVC.

Burning bridges defined- I had an ex who "burned the bride"... bet there are wishes they hadn't because they could've borrowed my DVC points from time to time!!

Now THAT was burning the bridge! Poor thing, has to settle for paying cash at the resorts.

IMHO.
Here's the additional component, the broker is going to pass their knowledge about the potential buyer along to the seller. A seller is far less likely to take an offer seriously if they know this is the history of the potential buyer.

While it is your prerogative, there are consequences to your actions as there should be. I'm sure they'd be happier if they didn't have to deal with this if what you've posted is accurate. "The customer is always right" is an overstatement, there are times when it's best to cut your losses and this would seem to me to be one of those times. I'm feeling sorry for MS already.

Take a second to read this back. I'm not sure you are aware of how you are coming across when you say things like this.

You should feel free to spend your money wherever you see fit. I just think it might spend a little easier if it didn't have attitude attached to it.

To the OP, your indecision tells me that you don't really know what resort is your favorite. I suggest that you decide that first, spending this amount of money to buy a house that you may not like doesn't make sense to me.

That would work if there were an unlimited number of brokers out there and if the resale market was slow. But there are only 3-4 big DVC resale brokers and the resale market has a lot of demand right now. It is definitely to your advantage to be on the good side of a broker(s). When I was actively looking My broker emailed me as soon as anything she thought I would be interested in came out. She did this because I bought a lot of contracts from her, so she gave me more and better service than someone who is too much work for the effort.

All customers are not created equal. The customer who results in quick hassle free sales are the customers that brokers want.

Make friends with your broker, they can help you a lot.

Dean,

This is so very true and it's not just helpful when it comes to buying!

After my quick and painless purchase (35 days from offer to close, only 7 days on ROFR!), my DD approached me 18 months ago and asked if I would help her get a reservation to go with her boyfriend after their college graduation. I had just started to recieveing the rental emails from the TTS. I contacted them and found the points I wanted (transfer so I could control the reservation) quite quickly (and it had to be BLT points since we were 8+ months out). Jamie found an owner quickly and within about 10 days, the points were in my account. I also did another transfer last year to suprise my wife this Oct with a 1 Bedroom, MK view for our 25th anniv (she still has no clue). I don't think my transfers would have been successful had I not been on good terms with the broker.

John
