Everyone has talents, shines in some departments brighter than others and in real estate, it takes a certain personal wiring, a special breed of cat to list, market, sell property.Not everyone is cut out to wear the "R" either. But your own home grown story about your decision to actually put your all in to the real estate sales process happened how, why?
Did it start because you bought an apartment house or owned a mom and pop small business and in the process of selling it, you thought this is for me? Your dad was a carpenter and you had grown up around the building industry or related trade field so it was a natural tractor beamed in to it progression?
We all know you don't call yourself a real estate agent, broker, REALTOR because "it's just a job".
Real estate is a jealous master and does not want the fringe individual that thinks he or she is only going to dabble in it.In or out, all or nothing the drill because it is a demanding field. You have to be built for it. Be passionate about it to produce, succeed. To enjoy it whole heartedly and become pretty skilled at it..
So much of our time as a real estate agent, broker, REALTOR is spent getting all the details on a new listing from quick trips to the registry of deeds for legal description copies, town office tax records, touring the property to get to know the sticks and the bricks intimately. And the seller's situation, plans, hopes and aspirations. Shooting images, capturing video clips to edit, render, upload.
Copy copy copy to attract a buyer with all out marketing locally. And online way way beyond your local zip code too. Websites to populate with new listings, changes in existing listings with price adjustments. Or the owner will sell half the acreage with that listing now. Will now consider attractive owner financing terms to carry the mortgage with a qualified buyer.
The real estate field is not for everyone. And today's real estate agent, broker, REALTOR is not just a take one black and white poloroid, throw it under your arm in the winter and wait a minute for it to develop kind of Jane or Joe. He or she does more than a local ad with a little copy around that lone wolf poloroid image of the home that has his or her colored brand of real estate sign on it.
Lots of information posting, image and video uploading and linkage all around the social media platforms has to happen. Or if it does not, the real estate just a job person gets pushed out of the way. Becomes a relic, a dinosaur in a real estate world that does not tolerate marginal, now and then listing, marketing, selling of property listings.
The "that's good enough" little effort individual forced, escorted, squeezed to get out.Here's my story on how it happened. Here's the A to Z on the steps that led to real estate listing, marketing, selling in written form.
