Every real estate agent will say that they want more listings. Perhaps that also sounds attractive to you and could be your target. Use these secrets to boost your brokerage business.
To boost your listing potential, there are things that you can do in an ongoing way and strategies that you can deploy.
The property market is constantly changing, and you can adopt adjustment strategies. The listings are always out there to find. It all comes down to who you know and how you connect with people in an ongoing way.
What is the ‘core principal’ here? Commercial real estate property investment is a ‘people-based’ business—most of the listings generated come from real estate conversations with people. If you want more listings, then create more conversations every day.
To maximise your listing potential, some approaches generally get good results. Here are some of them.
Agent Focal Point
Focus on a defined area, property type, and customer type. Those three elements will help you get more leads and find the right people to help.
As mentioned earlier, the property market doesn’t disappear; it just shifts in a real estate change cycle. It moves from a bias of buyer to seller and tenant to landlord. Sometimes the property market prices must adjust as they are well above ‘affordability’ and sensible investment potential.
Motivations are essential. The property industry’s buyers and financiers determine their choices and actions based on affordability, property market trends, and future opportunities.
Prices and rents can eventually become too high. The sellers will ultimately accept reality, and a real estate agent will all the property market evidence can help with that.
People Are Objectives
Every property you list will have a target market of buyers or tenants. Defining that target market and tapping into it is a skill.
Top agents respect the process and will do everything they can to establish or reach a target market campaign approach. Let’s face it, when you have won the listing, there is still a lot to do, and some direct strategies of target marketing will help you immensely.
Negotiate on Purpose
Negotiate from a position of knowledge and evidence. Your client is someone who may have a firm opinion on what they want as a sale or lease outcome, and that opinion may now align with the realities of current property market conditions.
You can always practice your negotiation skills based on the current property market and what you are seeing or experiencing.
Property Market Facts and Figures
Keep a record of all transactions and a resume of market evidence in the property types you work with.
Load the information into your cloud-based tracking system, so you can draw on any of that information to help a client or prospect understand what is going on now and into the future. Graphs and statistics will help with that.
Advantages of Top Agent Status
So, the core message you can develop with your listings is to ‘always be prepared’ with market-related strategies and real estate information. It is easy to boost your real estate listing opportunities when you work from a position of research and facts.
Look for those facts and build your marketing strategies around them. As this property market changes, use the three ideas here to get better enquiry and property momentum as a real estate agent.
