Inventory—or lack thereof! When we have trouble finding the perfect home for clients, we show them things they would not think to look at (within their price range). Sometimes a “remodel project” can create the property they are searching for. Another tactic is to monitor. We monitor the MLS, pocket listings and communication with other agents to seek out that perfect property and get the showing before anyone else. The most time consuming approach is waiting! This is a hard avenue to stroll down, but sometimes it is best—especially if clients are looking in the “off season.” I do not recommend showing property that is above their desired price point until they raise the bar.
2) Real estate agents are expected to be absolute experts on their respective regions. What steps do you take in order to ensure you know positively all that you need to in order to keep your clients well informed?
