7 Simple Steps to Winning the Listing Battle

Get more sellers to sign the first time. A Texas star shares how

By Michael Antoniak

When the topic is listing presentations, Cheryl Fairbanks is the expert. By her estimate, she leaves 95 percent of her listing appointments with a signed contract.

“Sellers want to know two things: if there’s anything they need to do to sell their home, and how much they will get,” she says. “If you try to answer those two questions without giving a solid presentation, they’ll say ‘next’ and move on to another agent.

“But if you use the presentation to establish your credibility and show them you’re the expert – before you ever start talking price – you’ll get that listing,” Fairbanks says.

Here, the Hall of Fame member with RE/MAX Trinity II in Southlake, Texas, outlines her best strategies – and what they could mean for your business.

 

  1. Define the Process

  2. Qualify the Client

  3. Send a Packet

  4. Be a Smart Scheduler

  5. Price with Precision

  6. Establish a Rapport

  7. Make the Winning Pitch

Showing Property

In case you missed the email from Leah, here is an important reminder:

It has come to our attention that there have been recent incidences of REALTORS® showing homes and failing to secure the properties when they left.
It is extremely important that you make sure you secure the premises when you leave a property. In many cases, the sellers feel violated and fearful when they return home to find their properties have not been properly secured.
Remember, it’s a privilege to be allowed in a person’s home when he or she is not there. Additionally, failing to properly secure a property after a showing could be a violation of the REALTOR Code of Ethics.
As a REALTOR®, you have an obligation not to interfere with the contractual agreement between the listing REALTOR® and the sellers. Leaving a home open for burglars, vandals and/or assailants could jeopardize that listing agreement.

 

Sincerely,
Leah Selig
CEO, Space Coast Association of REALTORS

RE/MAX had more brokerages qualify for the REAL Trends 500 than any other brand. Congratulations to the 550 Broker/Owners, Managers, and Sales Associates featured in this year’s survey!
“RE/MAX and members of the RE/MAX network continue to surpass competitors in annual industry surveys and studies,” said Dave Liniger, CEO, Chairman of the Board and Co-Founder of RE/MAX, LLC. “The 2017 REAL Trends 500 survey confirms that our agents, on average, assist more buyers and sellers with some of the most important transactions of their lifetimes. On behalf of everyone at RE/MAX, I congratulate all of our brokerages that were included in this prestigious survey.”
