Avoid Shooting Holes in the Bottom of Your Boat

Avoid Shooting Holes in the Bottom of The Boat

 

Most agents work extremely hard for their clients but some agent's actions or lack of, can hurt a sales transaction. Be sure to timely relay any information, answer the phone plus promptly return calls, communication, whether good or bad sets the tone.

 

Valuing a property correctly means setting a realistic asking price to get the property sold quicker and for more money. Undervaluing leaves money on the table and is also a disservice to home owners, though buyers will benefit. That can mean trouble ahead.

 

Negotiate the contract like it's your own property, getting the best terms and conditions possible, otherwise money can be lost and achieving the best outcome becomes out of reach. An experienced agent knows how to advocate effectively for their clients. 

 

Focusing on buyers and sellers builds trust in the client relationship. When putting your wants and needs above theirs or chasing the money, better get a bucket and start bailing or swim for the shoreline. Ain't no one going to or willing to save you from yourself!

I hear before of people shoot a hole in the bottom of the boat Wanda and always make me laugh.  I see this in our business  lots.

I love the way you used this analogy Wanda,

Some agents don't get it! All they can think about is the dollar signs they are making and put their needs ahead of the their clients. Not the way to form long term relationships. They see right through you!

Putting clients first will prevent that mentality, Will Hamm. No second chances are given to those who use selfish means to gain!

Consumers need professionals to help guide buying and selling property, Dorie Dillard Austin TX, instead of wanna be's who put themselves in front of them for their own selfish means!

Loved your post and I so agree with you many agents do not get the concept and hence they do not last in the profession that is just 29 years of experience confirming your post, Endre

I have worked many transactions where I felt sorry for the buyers/sellers because they weren't being represented very well.

But yet, so many do it, George Souto. A good thing though, for those types to get out of the industry before more damage is done!

Part of the COE comes into play in those cases but so many are reluctant to complain, Brian England. It's a shame!

Hi Wanda- any time that an agent sees dollar signs when looking at their client...client beware.

People can sense insincerity a mile away, Kathy Streib! The reward for a job well done is a closed transaction plus referrals.
