Maine Real Estate For Sale !


Real Estate Buyer Calls, Broker, Agent, REALTOR Instantly After Answering Phone Hushes, Stops Buyer, Says "Know Exactly What You Want, Need."

The real estate broker knows what he would like but this buyer for ME property that just called that you have no history with, not much showing for details on your etch-a-sketch is not a "know exactly what you want" candidate.

maine rear view mirror sceneWhoa, not yet cowboy.

It starts with listening, active listening. Close pie hole, open two ear ports, listen. Ask a few questions like "tell me about your current home, what you like or don't like" and then you start to collect a top ten thumb nail collection of what this real estate buyer is hankering, wanting for his personal wish list.

Find out with pre-qualify what he can afford, keeping it real. But listening, not jumping to a quick role reversal of this is what you want. You insult a buyer insinuating you know what they want when you have no history, don't know what they want because they have not shared that with you. You're good, but not that good and a long long way from owning a fully functioning real estate crystal ball.

It is about the ME real estate buyer, not you. Example, guy on phone you just met wants a mobile home on acres, some ME land to build his own home in time behind that mobile. Using the existing well, septic, and as he and his partner can afford building, framing a home behind the mobile. Pay as you go...what a concept for a Bob Vila kind of guy with patience, know how and not wanting to do the head over heels in debt hokey pokey. Hey. If you take the approach "oooohhhh, mobile, gross" you are missing the mark.

 Pushing what you would want is insensitive to what he asks for, spelled out in simple See Dick, See Jane fashion.

And you have the gall to say "oh, you don't really want a mobile". He needs a one or two?

Cause get out of the way with any instant, know exactly what you need attitude that shuts him down, puts him off, insults deeply. You are history as he stops, shops until a ME broker, agent, REALTOR arrives on the screne that says "I hear you, see the logic and what about this, this and this on the market to consider".

It's the buyer that drives the selection, the seller that provides the inventory and the broker that plays matchmaker.

You don't like Abba, Barry Manilow with all your heart but if the audience you broadcast to does, spin the tune, stack the wax. Pretty simple, cut and dry. Think customer. Think ME real estate closing, see happy buyer, seller. Maine, keep it real, simple, fun.
