Real estate transactions are associated with sales methods and techniques. Are you asking the right questions? Can you close a deal on the spot? How much time and effort are you putting into marketing your listing? These are all great questions you need to ask yourself to make sure that you’re on top of your sales. Here are some quick sales tactics for realtors.
One difficult sales tactic realtors can agree on is the ability on securing a listing. There are many factors out there that will determine how homeowners choose who they want to list their property. It is your duty to come up with sale techniques in order to get the listings.
An important sales technique in getting listings is by having a follow up sequence with homeowners. When for sale by owners post their property in the market they receive a great amount of calls from other agents. In order to build a relationship with them, give them a weekly call to see how they’re doing and ask if you can be of any help. Identify what their pain points are and provide them with feedback. Most homeowners want someone who is well educated about their property and can professionally handle their transaction.
You finally secured a listing but that doesn’t guarantee that the house is going to sell. Hosting an open house is a great way to drive traffic to get buyers to the home. It’s also a perfect way to gain potential buyers for other properties. But, we all know that there will only be a handful of people that actually attend the event. If you haven’t started already, try using resources that are available such as the Internet. Promoting the property you have for sale on social media outlets will give you endless amount of opportunities for people to view your listing. With the amount of time and effort put into an open house event, you should try marketing the property on Facebook, the MLS or even your personal website which will allow thousands to view your property.
Another way the Internet is a great sales tactic is that it gives you the ability to specifically market your property to the people who are most likely to buy. If you’re willing to spend some money on advertising online, Facebook will be a good place to start. We know that running ads cost money so we would only market to people who we believe have the highest potential in buying your property. We do this by targeting people who are categorized by most likely to buy, homeowners and income to name just a few sales tactics that we use.
