Buyers Market!

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams 01519870

I wonder if any of you seasoned professionals can give me a few good pointers on finding the buyers.  They seem to be hiding in my neighborhood. I am all over the net, I drive around town with magnets on my car(drivers side, passenger side, even the tailgate). I network, My signs have my name and my Cell number only. Where are they?  Where did they all go?  How can I go about finding a good qualified Buyer?.  What are some of your best Ideas?  (If you don't mind sharing!)I have been selling Real Estate for 3 Years, as of late I am finding it harder to come up with new ideas.  I bet It would help out a lot of us right now to read some different ideas.

They went to the bank to get pre-qualified before they called you, then they signed another lease. 

Seriously, alot of the folks who demographics say should be buying now bought during the boom (earlier than normal with loose credit).  Just like the car dealers hurt themselves with 0% interest loans, stealing tommorow's customers today (or yesterday).

I guess they are all waiting for the bottom.  Where ever that is. Hope we find it soon.

You have been in business 3 years: Try keeping in contact with prior clients.  Would they recommend you? If not, you have something to fix.  It may not be a lack of buyers. Bluntly, you may not have what they want. What does your broker think - is there any insight there. 

 (Do others in your office have the same problem?)

If you were a buyer and were looking for an agent would you hire you?  If not, think about who you would hire and become them.  

There are WAY too many agents in this industry - to survive as a professional you must offer quality service. And buyers must perceive that you do.

I ask all my Realtor friends, "What is your niche? What do you offer that no one else does?" Mary, when you can answer that question, make sure everyone knows it. Then you will get people to call you. And I believe at this time it is one-on-one, belly to belly. The industry has taken a hit on ethics and we all must help people understand that 'we' are one of the good ones.
