Effectively planting seeds.

Effectively planting seeds.

 

There is a good reason why real estate agents must stay within their scope of knowledge. It is called risk management and prevents loss of license, finances or being reprimanded by a panel of peers. 

 

Never would I give assumptions to impress clients about plumbing, roofing, landscaping, air conditioning and duct-work, drywall, stone work, stucco or concrete. In the end, it could prove detrimental.

 

Of course, people in other professions are more than happy to lend oh-so helpful information to your clients when given the opportunity. They often base this on very loose opinions.

 

Clients hired an electrician to do some rewiring in their office. They began talking and before you knew it, he said, "Your home should have a constant flow of traffic coming through it while listed." 

  

It is amazing how those who have zero pulse or expertise about the local real estate market will make comments for conversation sake, planting seeds of doubt into people's minds. 

 

Plant a garden and watch it grow. Sow seeds of doubt and watch a business die.

agents often make this mistake because they are trying to be helpful or just want to SOUND like an expert.

Wanda just the other day I heard a service guy talk to the home owners about selling their home and what they should do. Seriously?  He must not have known I was their agent!!  What he told them was so off base and not legal. He thought they could 'hide' a defect.  Whoa.......

Jeffrey DiMuria 321.223.6253 Waves Realty, There is nothing wrong with telling clients you will get an answer from a professional who holds more knowledge or recommending one who knows how to proceed.

OMG Anna Banana Kruchten, CRS! This is a perfect example of why consumers need real estate professionals. Can you imagine the outcome had they not had an agent and listened to him?

Hi Dorie Dillard, Gaining trust is important between parties. I'd rather admit that my knowledge is scant in other professions rather than risking the relationship or causing damage.

Good morning Wanda.  Catchy line about growing a business and seeds of doubt.  I'll have to remember that one

Good morning James Dray. Staying true to our profession greatly helps to create trust between parties. THAT is my biggest goal when helping buyers and sellers! Though, I cannot control other people's actions, I do have a handle on mine.
