I feel the explanation most house consumers who learn my advertisements who do not name, simply assume what is the catch. Most people is blitzed every day with varied come ons and enticements that they have a tendency to breeze proper on over the advertisements.
If I had been a house purchaser, I’d a minimum of make a name to ask some questions. I feel that the majority house consumers within the pre-purchasing phases simply do not need to be bothered by an agent.
Final week, I put a web site up on the web and obtained over 350 hits from potential consumers. I solely obtained one inquiry as to my “purchaser rebate” supply.
Usually talking, if it sounds to good to be true, it normally is. If I put an advert up that reads “agent will provide you with 50% of his fee for getting a house” do not you assume “what is the catch”? I’ve had consumers that even knew of my supply, go together with different brokers. Once I defined to them later, that that they had simply thrown away $6,000, they only shrugged their shoulders. I feel it comes right down to educating the customer and repeating it about 7 occasions. In advertising, it says it’s essential to a minimum of repeat the identical actual message 7 occasions to the buyer earlier than it sinks in.
I personally assume that over 99% of the house shopping for public is not even conscious that they will get a rebate by simply asking the correct agent. Immediately, I learn the selliing stats on my A number of Itemizing Service web site and it confirmed over 350 houses pending for the day. I’d enterprise to say most or none obtained any sort of rebate from the promoting agent. After doing a bit computation based mostly on our areas median promoting worth, I figured a minimum of $1 million may have been paid in purchaser rebates. That’s simply at present!
As a house purchaser that has learn a few of my rebate articles, you must now be armed with sufficient info on how you can ask for a rebate. In the event you see an commercial providing a rebate, make the decision to that agent and a minimum of ask some questions.
Do not forget to get your rebate settlement in writting earlier than establishing a working relationship with an agent who does rebates.
