Real estate agents do more than just show homes and write contracts. Realtors get to know homebuyers and their families, guide them through a complicated process that is both stressful and emotional, and help them make tough decisions throughout. The expertise and experience of real estate agents is vital to a buyer’s success.
So how can agents help homebuyers make those tough decisions, when emotions are running high and so much is at stake? We’re sharing a few tips from McKissock.
How to Help Homebuyers Make Tough Decisions
- Keep them informed: Involve buyers in all parts of the homebuying process, not just touring homes and closing. Keep them updated throughout, and be available to answer questions.
- Help maintain perspective: It’s easy for buyers to get caught up in the cosmetic details of a home that aren’t really relevant to their goals and needs. Remind them of their “must-haves” if they start to get off track.
- Be honest: Honesty can ward off confusion and disappointment later in the buying process. Be upfront throughout the process.
- Be patient: Homebuyers won’t have the same level of understanding about the buying process, even if they’ve been through it before. Answer their questions patiently and kindly, and they’re more likely to remain calm and level-headed.
