Grasping at Straws Day 58 Your Million Dollar Years

Grasping at Straws Day 58 Your Million Dollar Years is probably the worst thing you can do if you are starting out in real estate. You don't want to grab at straws, you want to build a business that produces your living. Starting your career with small goals only gets you small results. Starting your real estate career with goals that are unattainable, or unattainable by you is also foolish. To succeed in the real estate industry you must adhere to a live long pursuit of knowledge. Don't worry, along the way you will gather a life time of experience. Each experience with each new client is both the same and different.

The buying and selling of a home is straight forward. I, the Seller, have a commodity that you, the Buyer, will want, so let's get this done is how For Sale By Owners (FSBO) think. To them it is that simple. If only life were as simple as people who don't know what they don't know think, wouldn't that be a great world. Unfortunately the world works a bit differently.

Today I was looking through new listings and a FSBO for a 2 million dollar home had no interior pictures of the house, 6 exterior pictures of the land and house and an ALL CAPS demand that no phone calls only serious people send him an email. Oh, and there was no email attached. This process is broken and the FSBO has no clue. People like this are not impossible to educate and it will take time. Yesterday I had a FSBO tell me yesterday he won't work with a Buyer's agent even if the commission is paid by the Buyers.So me with a buyer who will not buy without an agent is being told they can't see the house. You just can't make us these stories. Grasping at Straws Day 58 Your Million Dollar Years

Good morning Larry. Some get it some don't. Some understand a net sheet, some don't. Some are wise, some are not. And so it goes as you get experience. Enjoy your day!

Good morning Larry - sometimes you really can't confuse people with the facts.  It is what they want it to be.

Grant Schneider You have to listen to how people are hearing and you have to share information is a way they can hear, so true.
