Growing up it seemed 'white lies' were okay while lying was a sin. Sometimes it was hard to learn the difference. Here is an example we can all relate to: If a young boy dresses up as a monster on Halloween and asks his father if he looks 'really scary', it was okay for his dad to say 'YES'! That was a 'white lie'.
There are times when there is no harm in not telling the 100% truth. However, if we are not telling the 100% truth in order to save someone's feelings AND IT HURTS THEM, we are lying. No ifs,ands or buts.
So what does this have to do with real estate?
Some real estate agents are more worried about a homeowner's feelings than they are about telling the truth about the current value of their home. They find it difficult to deliver tough news. To make sellers feel better, they lie or mislead.
Good agents can deliver good news.
Great agents know how to deliver tough news.
You always need an agent that will tell you the truth, even when you would rather not hear it. You need an agent more worried about your family than they are about your feelings.
