Hey Home Owners, Leave the Hard Work to Us!

  1. So you suggest asking for a preview of their home to gain access to show them how hard working you are. This would seem to me to show how dishonest your are. FSBO’s today are much smarter than that. I was hoping our industry was moving on from these type of tactics….this is just bad advice.

  2. “Before you think you are the answer to their dreams–find out what they’re dreaming about!”

  3. Damon, I don’t feel like asking to do a preview is dishonest or misleading in any way. We as agents preview all of the new listing that come on the market in our area and FSBO’s can be part of that. This is a great time to get to know the property, speak with the owner to see if they are open to paying a commission to a buyer agent and to introduce yourself as the area expert to the owner. If they like you chances are you will be at the top of the list when they decide to bring in a pro. Don’t be misleading in your communication with the owner and you won’t have any problems.

    I disagree with Damon that previewing a FSBO is “shady”. I do this on a regular basis and keep up with details on those houses. I don’t just list property in my marketplace but I’m expected to be knowledgeable about the inventory. Nothing is more awkward than having a buyer ask about a FSBO when you have no idea about it. Previewing introduces you to the seller. Allows you to make notes about the property. You now have information for interested buyers and the FSBO has a resource should they need one. Nothing shady in that.
