Todays Focus: Q&A Answer your questions concerning: –Getting the Business –What do I say? –Placing referrals
How do I get the Business? When I come in contact, or become aware of a potential referral, I am never sure of what to say or how to say it!
How do I get the Business? Engage in Conversation!
Ask, Listen and Learn!
Did you say you... are looking to move? need a larger home? want to downsize? are expecting another child? have become an empty nester? are looking to invest in income property? are looking for a retirement vacation home?
Have you spoken with anyone yet? NO – I want to get my house in order before I speak with an agent. Im not quite sure what I want to do yet. Im waiting for the Spring market. Im waiting for the prices to come back up/down. What do I say?
What do you say next? You could lose valuable time if you wait. You could lose money by waiting. You can benefit immediately by getting an objective opinion from a professional realtor who is on top of the market in your area with no obligation on your part.
Have you spoken with anyone yet? YES - I have a friend in the business. I have someone in mind that I would use. I called a local office. I have been receiving mailings from ____ for years. What do I say?
Thats wonderful - Im always looking for a good agent to refer business to. Do you know how long they have been in the business? Do you know what areas they cover? Do you know what their specialty is? Are they experienced with First time home buyers? Investors, Million dollar properties What do I say NOW?
As a referral agent, I always try to match the real estate agents abilities with the needs of the customer/client that I am referring. As a referral agent, my suggestion would be to get a second opinion. You owe it to yourself. I can do that for you with no cost or obligation on your part. What do I say NEXT?
How do I get the Business? Just ASK for it! Is this a service you would want? Would you like me to do that for you today?
Keep the Conversation Going! Talk about what is going on in the real estate market – this info is on the news and in the daily papers. Talk about interest rates. They are at the lowest point in decades! Talk about the services – we have Mortgage, Title, Insurance and closing services along with helping customers sell and purchase.
What do I talk about?
Seeing the Opportunity. Q. If this were 2005, where would you place the Price and Rate dots? PricesRates High Mid-Range Low A. In 2005, the V would look somewhat like this one, where prices were on the high end of the scale and rates were in the lower range.
Seizing the Opportunity. In recent history, there has never been an opportunity like this, with low prices and low rates. In real estate, this circular area at the bottom of the V is called the Buying Zone – its an unbelievable time to buy. PricesRates High Mid-Range Low
Talk about the INCREDIBLE Opportunity Rates Down, Opportunity Up Weichert announces the all-time low cost of homeownership
