What’s negotiation have to do with it?
Yesterday we spoke about the art of “negotiation” within one of our networking groups. The various methods amongst the Top Producing Santa Clarita real estate agents were interesting.
It seemed that some were all about High Pressure. This was confusing to me because we were not talking about “negotiating” with a real estate client.
Negotiation with a client?
In fact, I don’t think “negotiation” with a real estate client has any place within a business relationship between a Realtor and a Buyer or Seller of real estate.
I qualify this statement because the “client” is always right. And if the client is not right, and if they about to get themselves into trouble, I tell them what they are about to do and then inform them of the consequences. But, I’m not negotiating with them.
The Negotiation job within a real estate transaction comes into play when dealing with the other “sales person” that is on the other side of the transaction.
My job when representing the real estate seller, is to get their home sold for the highest possible price, in the shortest amount of time, with the best terms. (everything hinging on the sellers wants and desires)
My job when representing a real estate buyer is to get them the best deal on real estate possible, to guide them through the escrow process, and to make sure they come out as “homeowners” safely on the other end of the real estate wormhole.
Negotiation comes hardest when dealing with the agent on the other side of the transaction. It could be something as simple as demanding that my clients, lower than asking price offer, is presented to the seller and reminding them they have to present by law.
It may have to do with the buyers agent client wanting one of our real estate sellers to replace, fix, upgrade items on the home that was being sold “as is”.
It could also have to do with terms of the offer, or the terms demanded by the seller. In each case I instruct my team to stay strong and always be the “alpha” in the transaction.
If we cannot negotiate for ourselves, there is no way we can do justice when it comes to negotiating on the behalf of a real estate seller or real estate buyer.
