Seller Myths


 
"WE ARE GOING TO USE 'JOHN DOE' HE IS THE #1 AGENT IN OUR AREA"
 
-IN A SERVICE BUSINESS, DOES THE BUSIEST AGENT OFFER THE BEST SERVICE & THEREFORE RESULTS? HAVE YOU EVER ASKED TO SIT IN THE BUSIEST SECTION OF A RESTAURANT?
 
...WE NEVER EXCEED 5 ACTIVE LISTINGS AT A TIME (Ours are at the top of the first page)
"OUR HOME WILL SELL FAST! OTHER HOMES ON OUR STREET HAVE SOLD IN LESS THAN ONE WEEK"
 
- ARE YOU PREPARED TO SELL YOUR HOME FOR THE PRICE THEY DID? EVEN THOUGH "YOUR HOME IS MUCH BETTER! " :)
- DID YOU KNOW THAT  IN TODAY'S HOT REAL ESTATE MARKET MOST CONDITIONAL OFFERS BASED UPON THE SALE OF A HOME WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED? YOU RUN THE RISK OF OWNING TWO HOMES!!!
 
...ALTHOUGH IT'S NOT ALWAYS POSSIBLE, WE RECOMMEND SELLING FIRST
“WHY WOULD I PAY 5% COMMISSION WHEN 'ABC REALTY' WILL DO IT FOR LESS?"
 
- 'ABC' WHO? RE/MAX AND IT'S AFFILIATES REGULARLY OWN 1/3RD OF THE MARKET SHARE. THESE OFFERS ARE USUALLY EMPTY GIMMICKS TO REEL IN POTENTIAL HOMEOWNERS. BEFORE YOU EVEN CONSIDER HIRING THESE DISCOUNT BROKERS ASK FOR HARD PROOF/ EVIDENCE OF COMMISSION DISCOUNTS HONOURED "LISTING AGREEMENTS & TRADE RECORDS". THESE DISCOUNTS ARE MOST LIKELY BASED UPON 5% TOTAL AND HAVE CONDITIONS WHICH ARE VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO MEET...ENDING IN AN INFERIOR SERVICE AND FULL COMMISSION. iT'S A HUGE INVESTMENT, DON'T LEAVE IT IN THE HANDS OF "NO NAMERS' WHO GIVE AWAY THEIR OWN MONEY (commission). THEY WILL NOT FAIR MUCH BETTER IN NEGOTIATING THE PRICE OF YOUR HOME.
 
...IN RESPONSE TO CONSUMERS WANTING A DISCOUNT, I OFFER AS LOW AS 3.5% IF I FIND THE BUYER, NO OTHER STRINGS ATTACHED!!!
"I CAN SELL PRIVATELY AND PUT THE COMMISSION IN MY POCKET"

- YES IT IS POSSIBLE TO SELL PRIVATELY AND SAVE THE COMMISSION, SO IS WINNING THE LOTTERY!! THERE ARE EQUAL CHANCES THAT YOU MAY BE SUED FOR AN ERROR OR OMISSION THAT YOU MAY HAVE MADE SOMEWHERE IN THE PROCESS! EVEN THOUGH WE ARE EDUCATED IN THE FIELD OF SELLING 'REAL PROPERTY' AND HAVE EXPERIENCED MANY DIFFERENT SCENARIOS, WE ARE STILL REQUIRED TO CARRY $1,000,000 WORTH OF LIABILITY INSURANCE. (TRADING IN REAL ESTATE WITHOUT EITHER WOULD BE LIKE WALKING A TIGHT ROPE OVER THE GRAND CANYON WITHOUT A SAFETY LINE...PRACTICALLY INSANE!!!)
 
... IF YOU ARE LIKE MOST PEOPLE AND WANT TO SAVE YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY, GIVE ME A CALL AND WE CAN DISCUSS A FAIR AMOUNT TO PAY IN ORDER TO GET YOUR HOME 'FRIGAN' SOLD!!!
"OPEN HOUSES DON'T WORK, ALL YOU GET ARE NOSEY NEIGHBOURS"
 
- IT'S TRUE THAT YOU MAY GET SOME NEIGHBOURS, BUT THEY MAY KNOW SOMEBODY THAT WOULD LIKE TO LIVE NEAR THEM?
- IF TODAY'S TRENDS ARE THAT BUYERS LIKE TO DO THEIR OWN RESEARCH, WOULDN'T ALLOWING THEM EASY/ ANONYMOUS ACCESS TO A PROPERTY THAT CAUGHT THEIR EYE BE ADVANTAGEOUS?
 
...OUR OPEN HOUSES GENERATE UP TO 7X THE NUMBER OF VISITORS PER WEEK, THAN SHOWINGS DO
"MY MOM'S FRIEND IS AN AGENT, WE ARE GOING TO USE HER"
 
- WOW, ISN'T THAT NICE OF YOU! STOP FOR A MINUTE AND PLEASE ASK YOURSELF "CAN I REALLY SPEAK MY MIND AND DICTATE WHAT I WANT FROM MY AGENT... WITHOUT OFFENDING HER?"
- DOES SHE EVEN KNOW MY MARKET? IS SHE EVEN SUCCESSFUL SELLING REAL ESTATE LOCALLY?
 
...I WILL GUARENTEE MY SERVICES TO YOU AND EVEN INVITE YOU TO CRITIQUE MY WORK. I'M NOT GOING TO BE OFFENDED AND STOP TALKING TO YOUR MOM! LOL

Home Staging®
"Create an atmosphere
for Buyers that is both
decluttered and
unpersonalized so that
they can picture
themselves in
the space."        
                          ...Paul
 
 
Wood/ laminate floors are in
Dark flrs compliment light objects
Dark grey walls make art pop!
Don't be affraid of dark colours
in bright rooms
Accessorize with organic looking materials
Create Drama...like I did! Paul

 Example:
Can you notice the subtle
changes made to this Kitchen?
 
BEFORE
AFTER
As an Owner we are not
always able to see the
potential clutter that Buyers
determine is a lack of space
or even worse, a poorly
mantained home. Allow me
to tell you what I see and
avoid negative impressions!

"Hey Paul,
Just wanted to let you know we looked at the pictures and the listing looks great! Thanks so much.
We had two showings today and hopefully they went well and you hear something.
Thanks and have a good night.
