Twice this week, I’ve had deals fall through.
As frustrating as that is for me the agent, it’s even more frustrating for the client(s).
No, it wasn’t that my applicants didn’t look great on paper, because they looked awesome.
No, it wasn’t that my clients didn’t have their paperwork in first, because they did.
It was that the landlord picked someone else. Sometimes, the landlord might choose to drag their feet for a day to see what else comes in.
There’s nothing that can be done about it. That’s just the way it goes.
As an agent, I can advocate for you, explain anything that might not look great, negotiate for pets, a parking spot, what have you.
We don’t take applications on units that aren’t available, because that would be a stupid waste of time; we’re here to help you find a place.
In the end, it’s always the landlord’s decision.
