Sellers that insist on being home when the Buyers come

    Real estate done well… This isn't it…

    Top Realtor Representation

    When a real estate seller is home during a buyer's visit, all things may not go according to plan

    Instead of the transaction remaining “non personal” – it will now become personal.

    Even if you are the “nicest seller” in the real estate world, you maybe one of those that may “turn off” their buyer

    Maybe it was the way you stood, spoke or had your hair configured on that day, but whatever it was – it did not help.

    Then there is that “negotiating” thing that we educate our buyers about when they encounter a real estate seller.

    “You mean you tell your buyers they have an advantage when another agent's real estate seller is home during the viewing?”

    “Absolutely Yes!!!”

    As a licensed real estate agent I am very limited by my relationship in the real estate transaction. If it is not my seller, and the seller is under contract with another Realtor, I can ask very few things.

    I cannot get into things like, “Discounts, Urgency, Promotions and Bonuses…”

    But a real estate buyer, who is not licensed in real estate, is able to ask whatever they want.

    Most agents educate their clients in this manner.

    When it comes to educating the real estate sellers, “We want them not to be around when buyers are viewing their home…” “It's not that we want them to hide anything, we just want it to come in written form on the disclosures…” From our experience, it saves heartache and Misunderstanings…

    For the sellers that “have to be home” when buyers are viewing. You are bound, even if you are the nicest person in the world, to create discomfort in the real estate buyer and a unnecessary feeling of pressure.

    It has been asked to me by many a real estate buyer in a nervous way, “Is anyone going to be home?” – “I feel uncomfortable when the sellers are home and I'm looking at their things, kinda of strange…”

    Connor and Paris MacIvor are in the Top 1% of Realtors Nationwide, starting their real estate business in 1998 with RE/MAX Gateway - Santa Clarita Valley and Valencia CA. Their becoming licensed real estate consultants and representatives came from the horrible experience they had when they bought their first home. There were many things that the agent they had hired did not explain and disclose, which per law he should have. Getting that agent on the phone after they closed escrow and after he had gotten paid was impossible. Paris and Connor called the broker, the board of realtors, the office manager and all they received was the promise of a phone call back. The remedy did come, but not as fast and in the way they wanted. That act - that bad agent was the reason why Paris and Connor became Realtors. That was all they needed to vow to never let the same fate befall anyone else, that befell them. Today Connor and Paris are focused on client service. Protection and top-shelf service with regard to their real estate clientele. They primarily work within the Santa Clarita Valley and Valencia CA.
