5 fastest ways to fail in real estate

This homework looks hard5 fastest ways to fail in real estate are self explanitory.  I humbly insert solutions to each and every fail point in hopes we can all be better at our jobs.  As one famous Patriot has said, "Do your job."

Number 1; Don't be grateful for the opportunity and the responsibility of consulting, advising and assisting your neighbors with their real estate transactions.  (You are blessed with an abundance, be grateful, feel that and act accordingly each and every day.)

Number 2; Continue to complain on a daily basis. Better yet, see who else you can sidetrack with innane drivel about you and your life.  ("Tell me something good" is the immediate antidote to running into this person.  If they don't stop, ask again.)

Real Estate worst practicesNumber 3; Fake your job.  Use your skills of communication to dazzle people with buzzwords and inaccuracies rather than fact and interpretation. (Read, study, go to classes, have discussions with professionals more successful than yourself, voluteer your time, learn and keep doing it is the antidote to a big steaming pile of bull slippage.

Nomber 4; Don't do what you said you were going to do.  Better yet, don't do anything and look for people to blame. (Under promise and over deliver is the mantra.  Take the blame for anything that goes wrong, or better yet, oversee all the work to make sure it is being done correctly and on time.  Look for success, not blame and failure.)

Bad Real Estate PhotographyNumber 5; Don't follow through, on anything.  While not following through make sure to talk in overglowing terms about how good you are. That is always convincing. (If you are guilty of one or more of these 5 ways to fail, you might want to consider another profession, or better yet, be more professional.  People depend on us each and every day.  Show them that means something to you, too. 5 fastest ways to fail in real estate.

Number 6: Don't let anyone know you're in the business, when old or new customers do not hear about you. Good article Larry Lawfer .

Bruce Hicks thanks for adding #6, it is so true, but now we are getting into things people should do and don't.  Doomed, I tell ya, doomed.  But this may be a bit of puffery.  You be the judge

Thanks, Anna Banana Kruchten it is so true that many people look at our profession as some part time way to make a few bucks.  Sadly those people learn or leave.

Sharon Tara and everytime you run into someone like this don't you wish they would do a better job?  I know I do. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

Stefan Winter With the average agent making less than poverty level in my area I think there are a lot of people with licenses who are just not very professional in the way most people would want.

This is sad because there are definitely people like each of these examples.  Your thoughts in parenthesis can help those people succeed, or at least not fail so bad.

Thanks for sharing.
