Successful Real Estate Agents have a simple yet profound sales secret

It has been proven that the most successful Realtors are more service and client focused.

If you are a real estate agent ask yourself these questions: Do you use social media to brag about your latest real estate listing or how many deals you have done? When meeting with clients do you talk about what a great salesperson you are or are you more focused on their needs?

Successful Real Estate Open Houses

Staging property increases a Seller's real estate price

When staging a real estate property incorporate the visual as well as the other 4 senses

As a Realtor you will be holding open houses to attract as many buyers as possible in order to fulfill your fiduciary relationship to your Real Estate Seller in getting the highest price possible.

You also want to establish a good impression on potential real estate buyers and perhaps bond with them so that you can nurture them into a future loyal client. To do all the above and create a property to remember it is imperative that you hire a real estate stager.

My new book, Getting the Property SOUL’D – A Breakthrough System of Successful Stress-Free Buying and Selling, is filled with stories about those clients who listened to my advice and those who did not. The results are very clear: those sellers who hired stagers and created a pleasing neutral environment had quick well priced sales.  Those sellers who insisted on doing their own thing in their own way got much less desirable results and those sellers who would not do anything at all fared the worst.

When a buyer enters a home, he knows when a seller doesn’t care much about their property. and even if it is just needing a thorough cleaning and emptying out of the seller’s belongings, a buyer will want to negotiate, because he/she can’t see beyond all the dirt and stuff.

San Francisco Real Estate – To Build, Build, Build?

Just building in San Francisco is not the answer

Too much demand for San Francisco real estate drives up the prices

San Francisco’s high housing cost is a tough problem: too many people want to live here.

However, to just build and build and not create a supportive infrastructure just won’t work.

Our traffic problem is horrible. The streets are a mess with potholes and our bus system is inefficient. The sewer system is currently being upgraded but will it be large enough to meet the needs of the burgeoning population? Do we have enough water? What about our power grid?

How Real Estate Staging Can Up Your Game—And Your Profit!

Be realistic about pricing real estate

To get the big bucks Sellers of real estate need to Stage

In real estate, you will frequently come across a client who has a completely false idea of what their property is worth.

On the one hand, you may have a client who seriously underestimates their property, and you get to be the one to tell them the good news. However, much more often it’s the opposite: Real estate clients who think their property is worth more than it is.

Real Estate Success Formula SOUL’D Chapter 1: CLARITY

All goals require clarity

Whether you are a Real Estate Buyer, Seller or Real Estate Agent you need to be clear what your goals are

 

Whether it is real estate or life there is a systematic formula for success.

But most people do not take the time to analyze what creates best results. When I teach real estate sales training I have learned that most of my students are quite clear what they don’t want, but not so clear what they do want.
