Musings of a Career Consultant

SoCal Texan in Bmore Leading Rock Stars

“Bad, bad,” says the buyer but when he goes away, then he boasts -Proverbs 20:14 August 2, 2012

Every morning I get emailed Bible verses (not pushing my religion, just saying) and this one came through a couple of days ago. I couldn’t help seeing how it was such a reminder of how hard our Clients can be on us even when they know they’re getting the very best from us and/or the market.

See, we don’t make the market or the conditions, we just interpret the market and navigate the conditions. When it’s presented to your Clients like that at the beginning of every relationship, they’re expectations are in line with what you can actually do for them. I would most preferably have this conversation when I do a Listing Appointment or a Buyer’s Consultation (which is when I get the Buyer Broker signed – and get one of those suckers Every. Single. Time.).

Do ya’ll preface ya’ll’s relationships like this? Or are you letting your Clients scream “BAD” in your face?

 

How’s the Market? April 27, 2011

In Glendora, La Verne, San Dimas and Covina?

We have 45 new homes on the market which scared 47 to reduce their price. 52 went into Escrow with 39 Closing Escrow. What do these numbers mean? That we’re basically servicing the listings we have with the Buyers on the market. But basically we’re not Closing as many as we could to level it out.

If you’re a Buyer, get more aggressive with your Offers. Don’t know how to do that? Give me a call.

If you’re a Seller, get more aggressive with your Marketing (or be one of the 47 that reduced their price). Not sure what you could do? Let’s chat.

Should you have any questions about anything you’ve read here, would like more details about a certain area of these cities or if you’re interested in another city in the San Gabriel Valley or Inland Empire, please feel free to call your favorite REALTOR :)
