Let’s dive right in. That’s how we do things at White Diamond.
Getting a contract is the easy part. No matter which side of the table you’re on, however, the negotiations and hurdles don’t stop once the proverbial ink is dry. There are still inspections, appraisals, financing contingencies, and the possible unknown or two, like title issues.
But what if everything goes smoothly? There’s a contract within days and no hiccups along the way? Why should you pay for that?
Let me tell you one of my favorite stories: The landlord of an apartment building had several frantic calls during the dead of winter. The heat wasn’t working. Upon checking the boiler, he found he couldn’t figure out the problem, so he called a repair professional. The repairman showed up promptly, gave the boiler a thorough visual inspection, knocked on it here and there, and with a wrench gave it a hard, loud WHACK! It started right back up, which pleased the landlord beyond belief.
When he got the bill, he was shocked! He couldn’t believe the nerve of charging $1,000 for a 15-minute visit and a good whack. He called the company to demand an itemized bill that justified such an exorbitant charge. They did just that: Service Call, $75; Minimum One Hour, $100; Knowing Where to Whack the Boiler, $825.
The moral? Knowledge, efficiency, and experience are worth your investment for ease of mind, transition, and transaction.
