Question: Will You Discount Your Buyer Side Commission?

buyers commissions scripts Sep 11, 2019
 

Will you discount your fees so I can buy this house? 

A conversation that is happening more and more frequently is when a buyer asks you to reduce or remove your buyer side commission on your listing and pass the savings on to them. 

Their argument is that they will simply "represent themselves". Of course the reality is that you will still be the one writing the offer, negotiating the sale, opening escrow, arranging financing, attending inspections, negotiating inspections, attending the appraisal, and attending to a million other unforeseen bumps along the way until you reach a successful closing. 

So how do you respond to this request? Watch this quick video for three scripts to use in the field.

Yeah Sure .... Does Language Matter in Sales? (90 Second Coaching)

scripts Jun 21, 2019
 

Does language matter in sales? Yes it does! According to communication expert Ryan Avery what you say and how you say it is a reflection of your brand, your confidence level, and your ability to influence people and situations in a positive way. 

For instance when we respond with the words "yeah or sure" to a question or a concern it may not convey clearly to the person asking the question or raising an issue that you truly care about the outcome, that you are committed to solution, or that you even know how to address the situation. Instead expert communicators use more direct and affirmative responses like - "Yes, Absolutely, 100%, or of course."

Watch as Jim explains why this concept is so important during this quick video coaching segment.

Home Values Fall for the First Time in Seven Years - New Game Plan

listings scripts sellers May 26, 2019
 

Pending home sales surged in March up 3.8% (blowing past economists expectations of only .07%) but there is a catch the median US home value fell for the first time in seven years in April. Why are sales surging but prices are now falling?

The answer isn't that demand has changed. Buyers are still in the market and sales have ebbed and flowed with interest rates. What is changing are inventory levels. More inventory is piling up across the country. This means more to choose from for buyers and more pricing pressure for sellers. To attract a buyer sellers have to price their home's to compete against more and more inventory hitting the market daily. 

Watch this video to explore a game plan for having three key conversations with your sellers to ensure they get their pricing right!

Three Reasons Why You Should Never Say You Are "Soooo Busy"

scripts time management Apr 15, 2019
 

We have all said the words "I am soooo busy!"  

But is this the best response when someone asks you how you are doing or how is it going? No, in fact there are three key reasons why you may want to avoid using this language when talking with your sphere of influence, your clients, or even a family member. 

1) Bragging - If you are busy and the person you are talking with isn't they may feel inadequate or even embarrassed about their level of success. This can cause disconnection or even professional jealousy. 

2) Bothered - Because you are "soooo busy" some clients may decide not to burden you with more referrals or even direct real estate business. Many real estate veterans have had clients tell them "I just didn't want to bother you." Don't let this happen to you!

3) Disorganized - Often people who are overwhelmed, chaotic, or say that they are "soooo busy" can come across disorganized and out of balance.  This can be a turn off for clients who want an...
