Yeah, really like those!! Thanks for sharing so others can benefit and perhaps change THEIR vocabulary. I think the LIST vs. MARKET distinction is key - ANYONE can list!

Another one I am trying to get in the habit of using is professional fee instead of commission

And expireds are properties rejected by the market

Yes...free design consultation (rather than free estimate).

You're thinking about it the right way.

FSBO - people who are waiting around to get ready to sell

Comps- houses that sold that at 100 square foot more than yours but sold for more than what you think in the last eighty days

listing presentation- first date interview?

It is extremely difficult to purge one's speech from insider real estate agent lingo.

One major problem is there are SOOOOOOOO many non-practicing real estate agents in FLORIDA. They bring with them their 'Nebraska' real estate lingo and you need to be able to pull the line straight without offending.

Citizens watch too much make believe TV and repeat meaningless phrases in an even less meaningful context and pulling the line straight without offending is a delicate operation.

So we end up responding to a suggestion, "I want to put in a bid on the house at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Can you find out what the price is?"

"Hillary, is that you?"

Oh, and I'm starting to use carpet cushion rather than carpet padding as it communicates the benefit better.

Jeff Dowler CRS I like to call myself a Real Estate Consultant (and not agent).

I have been an IT consultant prior to real estate career - and still do 'consultation'!

Gee Jeff, I just call them what they are.  FSBO, but mostly I say it all, not FSBO, comps and a listing appointment.

Interesting question, Jeff. I hadn't given it much thought as some of these terms have become so ubiquitous that the public uses them freely.

I use competing properties for other active listings. I use transaction for deal and submit an offer instead of make an offer. I also tell sellers I do not want to list their homes, I want to market their homes to get them sold. Big difference.
