Buyers Begat Listings

So you only want to be a listing agent? 

 

From the beginning of my real estate career, listings have been the name of the game. At closing,  I remarked that I don't work with many buyers. He took me aside and said that might not be the best thing to say...in fact he suggested I might be losing clients. This was a friend talking to me and he meant it as constructive.

 

After thinking about it...I had a revelation. Buyers begat listings!

It's a cycle, buyers become sellers and sellers become buyers.

 

By advertising for the needs of special buyers...location, price, wants, area, style, acreage, single family, condo, first floor bedrooms, no steps, garage, pool, etc...

I have callers who are thinking of selling their homes.

It may not be the right home for this particular buyer but it might be the perfect home for another buyer or the opportunity to list another property.

 

Buyers are future listings

 

 

Just today I was out showing condos to potential buyers. Several years ago they bought a home from me and now they are ready to move.  That buyer from 3 years ago is now a buyer again AND they have a house to sell.

Another way to look at buyers...they are future listings.

So buyers do begat listings.

Good morning, Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland you're absolutely right.... "work a buyer" and sometime in the future, you'll receive a calls from that homeowner who wants to sell!!!   buyers become sellers.... and it that process continues in YOUR AREA rather than out of state, you'll have that same cycle again....

Hello Margaret - for some one strategy works well for them.  Others can "mix it up" and be successful.  Understanding buyers' wants/needs, thought processes can help an agent with sellers by keeping them informed about the market from a different perspective.

Michael Jacobs Being mainly a listing agent gives one real insight when bringing a buyer to the table.
