In my last blog, I spoke about how there were three things that your professional realtor® should do for you to make sure that you get more of what you want: 1. Know the inventory; 2. Ask Questions; 3. Negotiate
Earlier this week I wrote about inventory knowledge. In case you missed it, it’s important. Today, I very briefly would like to focus on asking questions. As professional realtors®, we spend a lot of time talking. However, as any good therapist will tell you, half of helping people is asking the right questions and listening to the answers.
That’s why it’s so important for you to go on the Grand Tour with your Realtor®. It’s the first opportunity for your agent to hear what you like and don’t like. You also shouldn’t be afraid to dream big. That’s one of the first thing that they teach you in coaching: tell me your biggest, baddest goals so that we can make them happen. You should be able to tell build your dream house and tell your agent. The more that you tell them what you want the more than your agent can find for you. No one should force you to do anything that you want to do so there’s no need to settle. The good, professional agents that I know work tirelessly to match the right home for the right buyer.
Tell us everything that you want in a home that you don’t have now. We know about homes that aren’t even on the market yet. So go ahead…build your dream house. We’ll help you find it.
