So I do a lot of social media leads. This guy who I’ve been talking back and forth with (email/text/calls) for two months I’m now considering just straight up ignoring his pesky texts. Every 2 weeks about seeing houses but not buying. He wants a pool. Patio. New AC. You name it. 3 bedrooms. Solar panel. But his budget is low, of course. I don’t want to be a bad agent and burn my bridges. So I continue responding and being super helpful. Saying well you could get a big backyard and then when you’re ready build your own pool to your liking – then I’d refer him to good pool companies. I’ve sent him lender options and market updates and flood zones and all kinds of helpful resources. You know just being a good diligent agent. Yesterday he wants to see a house he found on Zillow. I said we’ve never met and I need him to either get pre-approved, or send copy of his license please. He refused to do either and said he’s not ready to buy just want to look and doesn’t want his personal info scammed. Today he texted me again saying “2pm Saturday. I’ll be there at the house”
I looked up MLS and told him it’s already pending. I also said I strongly advise you against showing up to the sellers personal residence but I wish you the best on your home search.
He got angry and said I’m wasting his time, and he has a right to see the home and just talking all kinds of crazy. I’m considering blocking him actually lol
Could I have done anything different? Any online tools to verify leads who could be anybody on Facebook or Instagram?
