We have been listening to the news, reading articles and watching TV. With the changing markets, have the needs of our sellers changed too? What are the most important factors a seller is looking for when interviewing an agent to list their home? Most Realtors are honest, trustworthy and ethical. We all take the oath when we are inducted into the "Hall of Realtors Association". So off the top, honesty is a given!
All Realtors state that our business is built upon "relationships". Sellers are you looking for a relationship or an agent to accomplish the job? Sellers are you looking for "Fantasy" or "Reality" when interviewing an agent? Are you prepared for the answers you may hear? Or, are you waiting for the Realtor that will give you the answers you "Want to Hear".
Mr. and Mrs. Seller, is it important for you to recieve "Free" benefits from your Realtor? What questions do you ask when interviewing Realtors? Are the Realtors meeting your criteria? If there was one characteristic of a Realtor that you would change what would it be? Mr. and Mrs. Seller, do you often wonder why agents don't come up with the same answers especially when it comes to pricing?
I believe our market has changed the needs of the sellers. If I was to sit down and interview you Mr. and Mrs. Seller, what is it today that make for a great Realtor?
