How I learned to stop worrying and love low-inventory markets

A recurring and legitimate challenge for agents 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.

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.
