Buyer or seller beware!   It’s really exciting sometimes frustrating when you finally get or make an offer on your home or a home you want to buy.   So it’s natural to want to share with your friends the exciting news or sometimes vent a frustrating real estate  situation.

What you may not realize is Facebook or any other social media site is NOT the place to do this.   Keep in mind it’s the internet and anyone including the party you are in negotiations with can look you up and find out everything you are sharing.   It’s such a common practice that in my last contract negotiation class the instructor advised us to look up the other parties on Facebook, LinkedIn , Twitter and anywhere else we could find them just see what they are saying.   I can tell from a seller comments how motivated and excited they really are about our offer!

So keep it quiet until after closing and then share with everyone how happy you are and don’t forget refer your agent –
