I get it. We don’t wear shoes in our home – but we don’t require any of our guests that enter our humble abode to adhere to these rules.
We also aren’t trying to get top dollar for our home, presently.
However, knowing what I know about real estate buyers, I would for go the, “having to take off shoes” part.
What if it’s raining and muddy outside? I have found that most buyers are happy to oblige when those situations occur. In fact, most buyers don’t have to be asked, they offer.
Unfortunately, it may turn off some buyers that may have wanted to buy your home.
It also may prohibit some buyers from passing the threshold because their “under foot wear” is not fitting to be viewed by the public, not to mention their realtor.
That is why we have Blue “over shoes” in our cars. I also mandate our buyers make a trip to home depot to pick some up. You will find them in the paint department, and if such a home is encountered on the showing schedule, then you have your bases covered.
Anonymity – remember this? Being able to do something without giving up who you are?
I remember it. Today, real estate websites – local agents and syndicators are all about “conversion”. How many properties does it take to get someone to give up their personal information so theirs can be sold?
That’s kind of like, “How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Roll Pop…”
However, looking at all of the companies that call me – email me – and message me about how they can help me convert more people into working with our Paris911 real estate team, I have deduced it’s big business.
Searching for real estate on websites that require you to give up who you are to do so, that chaps my hide.
I know what you are thinking, “It’s only right, if a consumer wants to see real estate listings, they need to give me a chance at them…” Oh, Mr. Agent – you are off base and potentially out of the game…
What is this, 1987? Is there only one place to get listings on-line today? Negative ghost rider – there are hundreds of thousands of places to view real estate listings, if you include the local agent’s websites.
Multi Million Dollar and Publically traded companies have started out and have almost perfected the task of putting real estate listings on-line.
All build around selling your personal information to the agents that are paying big money for it.
However, the case and point of this post is about “having to register” to search for homes. I don’t agree with it, and we find out that we get more phone calls when we couple our real estate intel with the listing data.
Real Estate intel has to do with giving information about the local community, the tracts, showing that we are local experts.
Where are you getting your eyes on the Real Estate that is actually and truly for sale? Believe it or not – some websites are publishing listings that are not really for sale to get you to give up who you are so they can sell your personal information to Real Estate agents paying for [...]
