How to Easily Overcome Zestimates with Buyers and Sellers

 

But Zillow say's the house is worth .....

At some point you will hear a buyer or seller say these words to you. How you respond can determine if you will gain a client's trust or potentially lose a listing or a sale. Ultimately buyers and sellers are driven by a need to feel confident in their decision making. What they are looking for is clarity and certainty. This is often why they go in search of answers from sites like Zillow and why they sometimes embrace Zestimates. 

To be viewed as a real estate expert it's important to define yourself as someone who provides not just information but more importantly interpretation of data.  You are the consultant, the adviser, and most importantly the clients advocate. 

Watch and learn as Jim uses Zillow's own website against them by utilizing the Zillow Accuracy Chart as well as powerful scripting.

planning strategy Dec 29, 2018

First I hope you had an amazing holiday with your family. My wife, Danielle, and I were able to have a fun trip over to Whitefish, Montana by train and spent the holidays in the snow. From both Danielle and I we wish you a happy New Year! 

As we all look forward to 2019 it’s important to consider five key areas of your business that can have a massive impact on your success in the New Year.

Let’s break them down: 

1)      Your Attitude –To change your attitude the first step is to accept that motivation is a myth.
