There are things that jump out at us when buying Real Estate ad yet, we often choose to leave well enough alone. Sometimes we avoid the subject because we worry about hurt feelings, or who knows, we may not want to raise a subject considered “too personal”. But we’re doing our clients a disservice when we avoid “the elephant in the room”.

By the same token, our clients often avoid “the elephant”, too. They have a series of questions, concerns, and doubts that they may not openly share.

Avoiding the Elephant in the Room will negatively affect the desired results of buying the home you want and that is the worst outcome of all.
