Michael,

I agree with Debbie Reynolds .  That is all you can do.  I cannot blame the buyers for freaking out...you are a bright man and can calm them.  A

I'm familiar with this product, didn't know there had been an issue. After they are aware of all the facts, I would have the buyers continue looking if they are freaking out.

If the buyers freak out over something, I move on...there is always something else to buy.  Not cool to talk them into something they are not comfortable with...

The main reason that there is buyers remorse is because agents try to talk buyers into doing something.

I was not aware of it, either, so went online and read about it.  If buyers are uncomfortable, then they can make the decision to move on. Just present the facts and let the chips fall where they may.
