The Large Diet Coke Does Not Cancel Out The Three Whoppers, Four Onion Rings, Two Ice Cream Pies.

Fooling ourselves, at the lunch counter, around the dinner table does not stop there.

We rationalize, justify maine stained glass window reflectionand twist the logic a tad to toy with the shades of gray. No longer black and white, as CS Lewis calls it "situational ethics" when concerning religious discomfort.

Moral dilemmas. So as a real estate agent, broker, REALTOR all of us start with a blank white canvas to create the property listing details on that new place.

You tour the real estate with a clip board. Armed with the local town tax card, the deed to the property listing.

The rooms, levels in the case of a home listing are measured. Details of each duly noted on your trusty clipboard with the "R" insignia.

The condition of the furnace, roof, wiring, age of the kitchen, baths, wear and tear details leap on to the clipboard to sort out later. Assembled in hieroglyphics only you and your secretary of 19 years can disseminate. Herd and separate on to the mls form. Get it populated, pre flight loaded for take off in to the wild blue yonder in to cyberspace. So that 60 or more empty property listing detail lines are no longer vacant. Locked and loaded with facts...just the facts, details. The way it is today.

The property lines. What is going on across the street or road. What is likely to happen on bordering properties, listings.

The current conditions, how the property listing fits in to other places like it in the neighborhood area. The supply of places like it, the sticks and bricks that have sold recently compared. Everything duly noted. Nothing left out to have to come back for, because you'll be off on other listings, real estate duties and the property plane for this one has empty seats. Missing information the buyer needs to stick around. Study and consider it.

This gathering of information, then shift to document it with copy, photos, video, maps, all the details you would want if you were on the other end of the tin can and string when asked, tell me, show me the place. Conveyor belts of information on the area, the real estateday to day starts with gathering all the information. Arranging it on the property table for all to feed on, digest. Wth hopefully little to question, nothing left out.  As a real estate buyer, as the owner of the place, expecations are a full splash of facts, the color, seasoning, flavor and spark of the place recreated. Does your real estate and local community "channel" broadcast that? Maine, we put it out there in black, white, living color. The place, people are that same refreshingly bold, simple, rich, special.

The essence is don't take a knife to a gun fight. Too many agents, brokers, REALTORS are out gunned because the intial steps are missed, hurried, left out. Get all the facts about the property at the listing. Populate the mls form. Whip up additional listing sheet that is information rich, loaded with details if the mls spaces just leave too much out. If your presentation raises too many questions about this, this, this. If the intial propaganda on the property is skimpy, Olive Oil skinny, then more time on the phone, on line, in person answering this, this, this about the place. Leave nothing out in your copy, your photostream, your live video loop. Saves time in the long run. Does the place justice so your buyer, seller are happy. Your brand X's not so much.

Wow, great educational post here with many informative comments as well. Still think our clients deserve the agent that goes the extra mile. I call it "doing the right thing". Is there such as thing as "too much information" when it comes to gathering details on a home?

Carla....give the real deal meal...supersize it. What seperates agents and great agents, brokers is the hard work that goes in to providing the details, more images, video, maps, everything you would want to say "wow" that place, property is being represented.

Excellent points to bring out. Don't count on the last listing agent ! Especially if your the 2nd or 3rd!! Clean slate, fresh listing, new ideas and get it sold... Can I have a Diet Dr. Pepper with that Contract!
