Local agents excel in tough marketplace
Contrary to the impression given by the many statistics reported week in, week out, you could be forgiven for thinking that there are hardly any buyers about.
It is true that the volume of properties bought and sold are much fewer than three years ago. It is also true that the market, as a whole, remains very challenging, perhaps as challenging now as two years ago.
However, when we examine the traffic through out websites, it becomes clear that there is still the same considerable interest in most types of property across all price ranges.
The buyers are still there! They are watching the market, and those buyers who can raise the finance, and those who can afford to sell at today’s prices will view properties that are priced to sell and, more importantly, offer and purchase.
experienced agents excel in tough market conditions. They realise that buyers need clear, unambiguous and accurate advice, encouragement, understanding and, more often than not, patience.
Many prospective buyers think that by viewing various property websites they will better understand the market, which, to a point, they will.
Many buyers are put off contacting some estate agents for fear of the hard sell from commission-hungry sales people. This is a shame, because a professional estate agent doesn’t need to behave like that.
experienced agents know that the key to best results is having the opportunity to talk with buyers and sellers as frequently as possible, providing advice and snippets of valuable information.
Registering your details with an estate agent will allow you to gain information about the local market.
The agent may know of someone with a property to sell who is not quite ready to market, but may let you view it. The agent may be able to tell you about properties that are not advertised yet, or properties marketed confidentially with no advertising, not to mention information about what sort of price a seller may be prepared to consider.
A tough market calls for property professionals to tell customers like it is, offer pragmatic solutions to make a deal. You can only do this by talking, most importantly listening and offering information and ideas.
