Shadow Inventory, Pocket Listings and More….

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

Real estate is a funny business with a great deal of secret stuff. Every time I hear the terms I mentioned I laugh. Come on.....give me a break there is enough to deal with without secrets and "for my eyes only" listings. Good business is about helping people and moving inventory. If you hold onto things, you are not doing good business and you can bet it will catch up with you eventually. Do the right things and you can get going and that just makes sense,

When you think about real estate, it is time to focus. I have helped people for close to thirty years in all areas, and made the process not only simple but enjoyable. Why should you go it alone or settle for less? Call me and find a partner to help, direct and get you where you want to be.

That's was a big puzzle to me when I moved here and was not an agent. My Realtor was showing me things and telling me "its for sale but don;t tell anybody". Huh?

Good morning Sheila,

I'm with you on this one. If you are representing your seller well you will be trying to get the highest and best price and let the free market (where all agents know about it) takes it's course!

I have heard about this sort of practice Sheila, and it just doesn't sound like it is in the best interest of the seller.

Good morning friends and thank you for stopping by and leaving your comments and offering your support: I really appreciate it.

Hello Rob. I hear you, the secret stuff and hush hush makes no sense to me whatsoever. It's funny how so many of us learned and improved upon bad service we experienced. Enjoy the day.

Hi Dorie. It is pretty simple I think, do it right and you will find the pot of gold, or ignore the right and it will come back and bite you. Just do the job. Thanks my friend.

Hello Tom. It isn't in the interest of the seller or the interest of the agent either. When you play, you pay and a reputation is hard thing to establish and a very easy thing to lose. Next......

Thanks very much all. Make yourself a great day.

Sheila

Sheila, I guess I'm never in the group called "normal". Where we are, many people prefer not to have a sign, etc. and Pocket Listing is an option that they LOVE. I do about 95%+ of the business out here anyway, so....

We can't say this enough, it's always about the client, it's always about the client. Agents who hold a listing make my brain ache.
