Twas the night before Christmas and all through the houseNot a creature was stirring, not even a mouse
My signs were all out and brochure boxes loadedThe ad copy in and the lock boxes coded.
I just wrote an offer with that 1 perfect buyereeghads its so low…they say they won’t go any higher
So I call up my seller with the not so good newsAnd they agree to meet with me…what have they got to lose
So we sit at the table & I do what I do bestCrunch numbers, talk deadlines and give it a rest
So the sellers agree and get ready to signAnd then they exclaim… “We’ve got an equity line!”
More crunching & digging to find extra moneyThe sellers are smiling…but this really isn’t funny
3 months on the market with nary a showingNow I have an offer and not sure how its going
And that’s when they ask what I don’t want to hear“Can you cut your commission?” and they crack open a beer
What I need is a Martini while relaxing by a poolI reply that “I can’t…it’s a company rule”
So I ring up the buyer right there on the spotI need to know if they’ll consider a counter or not
To my surprise they speak up, ‘we’ve got $5000 more’If its signed tonight we’ll accept it, but absolutely no more.
So back to sellers for signatures on the lineThey him & they haw & then finally sign
I email the buyer and get their replyAccepted as countered, Now I’m flying high
The sellers are happy as I walk out the doorIt’s just 9pm, I can stop at the store
I pick up some goodies for my own Christmas treatHead home to chill out and put up my feet.
When I drive up to my house it is such a great sightAll lit up for the holidays with the lights oh so bright
A smile crosses my face as I thought it just might“Merry Christmas to All and to All a Good Night”!
