Meeting A New Prospective Buyer: What You Should Remember

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Hamm Homes

Most buyers have already done some online research before you meet them for the first time. They will likely have visited sites such as Trulia and Zillow and will believe that they know as much about property values in your market as you. They might even think they have all they need to make an informed offer on a property. This of course is not the case.


Your resources are more comprehensive, detailed, and more current up to the minute; paired with your personal knowledge in regards to local properties helps you give your buyers an edge. buyers frequently have unrealistic assumptions about what they will need to pay for a property in competitive situations. Use your resources to provide a more realistic picture of what they can expect, fine tuned to what they would actually consider. That done you can show which of the available properties match their ideal home.

Will, I agree with you - it is always a good idea to show to the Buyers how much more information they will have when utilizing a professional realtor.

Good morning Will - all about building trust and showing how you special rather than knocking down what they think they know.

Hello Will - when prospective buyers land in front of a real estate professional, they arrive with all kinds of information, it's the role of a real estate professional to determine if there is a possible connection.

Will Hamm  it's a good idea to listen to their expectations and explain the reality of the buying process and what they can expect from you as the local professional.

Hi Will Hamm - I like to show rather than tell!  Take the client out to look for what they want and show them what the market dictates.

It takes some people a while to figure out that not everything on the internet is the gospel of real estate.
