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.
