What Do You Say When Mom & Dad Tell Your Buyers Not To Buy That House?!

My Brokers assistant is furious! She has her home listed for sale with our company and it has been on the market for months.  She finally has a buyer that has looked at it 3 times.  The husband loves it, the wife loves it, the kids love it!

My friend Wendy (Seller) says that the buyers say they love her home and want to make an offer. So they make an appointment to write the offer with our Broker at noon today.  Wendy gets a call about an hour ago and the buyers say they took their dad over an their dad doesn't think the home is the best home for them and wants them to keep looking.  The buyers are respecting dad and moving on.  Wendy is so depressed!

There isn't a lot she could say as an owner but she is so down over this.  I'm sure many of you have gone through this before.  What do you say to your buyers when they allow mom and dad to control their home buying decisions?
