How do you respond when a seller says they'll wait until spring, especially in the winter?
If you can't handle this objection, you're in a tough spot, right?
Let me share a powerful response because mastering the language of sales is key. It's not just about handling objections, but about providing food for thought to help them make the best decision.
So, if someone tells me, "Jim, we'll wait until spring and summer," here’s what I’ll say:
“I completely understand. I'll be here to assist you then as well. But here's something to consider. Many potential sellers are planning to wait for the same season, leading to a surge in listings. The advantage is better weather and more buyers, but the downside is increased competition.
Instead of one or two listings, you might face 10 or 20. More competition means buyer interest gets divided among many listings, potentially resulting in fewer showings and offers.
Now, here's what we know about today's market. We can't predict what will happen next spring or summer. The market is somewhat volatile. Currently, 69% of sellers receive offers within the first two weeks of listing, thanks to the strong seller's market.
However, with today's higher interest rates, the situation could change in six months. Today is an excellent time to be a seller due to the strong market conditions.
And here's an extra tidbit: During this time of year, you may have fewer showings, but the buyers who brave the elements are genuinely serious and qualified. Less traffic, less competition, and more committed buyers make this an ideal time to sell.”
Believe it, know it, say it. That's the messaging to address this objection.
