I think that?s an interesting observation on your part.
And yes, I agree. I usually would give out my personal information
only after my offer has been accepted.
If the seller likes, they can make it a contingency in their acceptance
of the offer.
In all fairness to the seller, they have a right to know that the buyer is
for real, in allowing them to tie up their property.
On the other hand, it?s obvious that Turan needs this type of document
to help him with his confidence, in making his offer.
He is thinking that if the seller or broker can see that he has a way to go,
then he can negotiate a better deal.
I think a lot of this has to do with experience, and your confidence in deal
making. Each of us have our own way of negotiating.
