My buyer and I got on really well. I'm wondering whether I should give them my phone number in case they need any help.
This is a really natural feeling to have when you get on well with someone. You want to be accommodating and try to make communication as smooth as possible. Giving your buyer your personal phone number might seem like a good idea, but from our experience, we don’t recommend it. In the beginning it can be nice, but as the chain progresses and tensions get a little higher towards the end, it could possibly be one of the worst and most stressful things that you do. Now they have direct access to you, and if they don't feel like something is happening the way they want it to, you may end up getting a text or call at nine o'clock or ten o'clock at night demanding this, that and the other from you, which in turn makes the selling experience much more invasive than it has to be. You're paying your agents money, so get your money's worth out of us! We're happy to communicate with them whenever you want. We want your experience to be as smooth-sailing as possible.
