A buyer that is ready...willing...and, wait for it...

 

....able : )

 

Pre-approved, will work their schedule around finding a home and not the other way around, and ready to pull the trigger when they find the right home.

It's all about being real.  

Real buyers buy.     

And real sellers sell.  

Absolutely nothing complicated about it.

Rinse.  Repeat. 

"Finding" them takes skill.   

And that is typically not found in a classroom.

When I meet with my pre-approved Buyer to start looking at houses, one of the first questions I ask is, "If we find the perfect home today, are you ready to make an offer?" If they hem and haw, I try to figure out what their hesitation is and see if we can address it. If not, they're not ready.

The “ready and willing” means the broker has to produce a buyer who indicates that he or she is prepared to purchase the property and is willing to enter into a purchase contract.  The “able” refers to the buyer’s financial ability to comply with the terms of the contract related to the purchase price, loan approval and cash payments.
