Just What the Heck Am I Selling Anyway? Hint: It's Not Houses!
When you walk into an auto showroom, it's pretty clear that the dealer is selling cars.
Visiting my favorite shoe store, I know I am going to walk out with the product they're selling -- a new pair of shoes.
But what is it that am I selling as a real estate broker when I am working with buyers?
I am selling something. But it sure isn't houses. I am selling:
- My Time
- My Connections
- My Experience
- My Understanding of Our Sales Contract
- My Negotiating Skills
- My Calm and Patient Attitude
- My Market Research on Comparable Home Values
- My Communications Skills
- My Knowledge of the Community and Its Properties
- My Empathy
- My Ability to Help Buyers Weigh Pros and Cons and Make Good, Timely Decisions
You see, when I work as a buyer's agent, I never sell a home. Instead I help the buyer, my client, select properties that meet their needs and acquire the home that he or she chooses at the best possible price given the current market.
As we view homes, I will tell them the good, the bad and the ugly I observe at the properties we visit. My role is to help my clients make a good decision on a good home -- not to sell them one particular listing over another.
It's their choice. And it's my expertise at the items in the list above that helps them reach their real estate goals and have a positive homebuying experience.
