Definition of a Real Estate Tour Guide
Once spent, precious time cannot ever be regained. Then why do so many people insist on wasting it, along with their resources and energy? During my career, I have met a few who fit this description.
For unknown reasons, they get in their own way, impede the process and barely hold on from year-to-year, occasionally closing a transaction. Some people say that being a natural salesperson is required to be successful in the real estate industry. I tend to agree with that assumption in some cases, not all.
Definition of a Real Estate Tour Guide:
- Showing buyers houses above original stated price range - Gets customers giddy, akin to attending a local Parade of Homes event. The goal of homeownership is never reached.
- Submits offers $30-40K under asking for Just Listed properties - Again, playing Spaghetti Real Estate in a brisk market, to see if something will stick is oftentimes futile.
- Has yet to ask for a pre-approval after 2 weeks of showing properties - The old, "Wait until you find us something we'd love to buy and then we will talk to a lender."
- Complains profusely on the internet but refuses to cut them loose - Takes to social media groups to lament over potential clients, day-after-day, to get advice, then does nothing.
- Drives two hours outside of selling area to please fickle customers - Because out of the 50 homes that could fit their search criteria, none quite fulfill the growing Wish List.
A tour guide takes people through certain areas, highlighting the neighborhoods, points of interest or scenic locations. A residential real estate professional takes that a few steps further by helping clients make an informed decision on a home purchase.
