Andrea interviewed on persistence by Inman contributor Andrew Flachner

A recurring and legitimate challenge in a low-inventory market is homebuyer fatigue. Understandably, having your eighth offer rejected can take the wind out of a buyer’s sails, and it can be a strain on both buyer and agent.

Andrea Swetland explains to Andrew and his readers, in this article “How I learned to stop worrying and love low-inventory markets”, the importance of persistence: “Someone needs to tell discouraged homebuyers not to give up until they find their dream home — I am that person for them.”

In fact, one of Andrea’s buyers, fatigued out after six failed offers, came to talk to Andrea about dropping out. Andrea’s cheerleading at that meeting encouraged them to put in one more offer, and the seventh time was the charm — two days later, they were in escrow.
