Delay: A work that usually impacts your selling or buying.
Delaying to sell: Sometimes homeowners want to delay selling their properties because of economics. They want to make sure that when their properties are listed, the sooner the properties are sold, the better for them. The pressures of cleaning the whole house everyday, the unrelenting calls from their agents make the sellers uncomfortable sometimes. When to sell? The real estate agent can give advice to the flow of selling in your area, how to make your house saleable and the important one is giving you the market value of your property. But as long as you are ready to sell, get a trusted real estate agent.
Delaying to Buy: Sometimes buyers can not decide in few showings of the properties they intend to buy. That is understandable especially if you are a first time home buyer. The delay in deciding sometimes would be costly as more buyers are competing on the same property. Buyers could not get everything based on their specifications that is why an honest explanation of the situation is necessary to educate them. The big role of the real estate agent to find a suitable property for the buyer is very important.
