Maximizing Momentum: A Guide to Taking Inventory in Your Real Estate Business

In this episode of the podcast, Neil discusses the importance of taking inventory as a real estate agent in order to capitalize on the opportunities and momentum available to you. Starting the new year with a blank slate is not necessary, as real estate agents have inventory and momentum that can be leveraged to drive success.

One key aspect of taking inventory discussed in the episode is leads from previous years. Many buyers take multiple years to make a purchasing decision and it is important to continue to follow up with these leads, even if it means doing so manually.  The power of personalized, hand-written notes in building relationships and making an impact with leads.

In the world of real estate, the key to success lies in winning those all-important listing appointments. With so many agents vying for the same listings, it's crucial to stand out from the crowd and demonstrate your value to potential clients.

One of the key ways to do this is by approaching your listing appointments as a listener. Many agents are so focused on selling themselves and their services that they forget to listen to what the seller really wants and needs. By going in with the mindset of a listener, you'll immediately differentiate yourself from the competition and start to build trust with the seller.

According to Mindi Kessenich, this is especially important in today's market, where buyers and sellers are both more nervous than ever. They're looking for someone they can trust, and the first step in building that trust is to listen and address their concerns.

Neil Mathweg, another seasoned real estate professional, agrees that asking questions is the key to winning listings. He emphasizes the importance of asking questions not only at the appointment, but also before the appointment, through the use of a questionnaire. By gathering information about the seller's needs and concerns, you'll be better equipped to serve them.

Once you've asked questions and established a rapport with the seller, it's essential to follow up with honesty. Mindi suggests asking for permission to be 100% honest as you tour the home, as this demonstrates your expertise and builds trust. By giving the seller an honest assessment of their property, you'll establish yourself as the go-to agent in their eyes.

In conclusion, the art of winning listing appointments requires a combination of listening, asking questions, and honesty. By approaching each appointment with these principles in mind, you'll set yourself apart from the competition and establish a relationship of trust with your clients.

How Real Estate Agents Should Shift In A High Interest Rate Market - Part 3 - Episode 377

If you're like most real estate agents, your market is shifting before your eyes.  With interest rates up over 7% we're seeing buyer demand pull way back and homes taking longer to sell.  How do we navigate through this shift and how do you as an agent position you're self to flourish?  

In this episode,

Who is going to give up the 3% rate? No one is going to move. Wrong. They are saying sales could slide 20%. I don’t but if that was the case. Don’t focus on the 20% that won’t. Focus on the 80% that will. 

38% of homeowners don’t have a mortgage. So more than 1/3rd of the population could care less what the interest rates are. And how many owe less than $100,000? 

You have to ask "who will be moving?"  We uncover that in this episode.  

Plus we discuss how it’s our time to shine as great listing agents.  It's time to be excellent at staging, photos, and video.  How to set great expectations with your sellers, and set up a communication plan for success.  All of this and much more!

How Real Estate Agents Should Shift In A High Interest Rate Market - Part 2 - Episode 376

If you're like most real estate agents, your market is shifting before your eyes.  With interest rates up over 7% we're seeing buyer demand pull way back and homes taking longer to sell.  How do we navigate through this shift and how do you as an agent position you're self to flourish?  

In this episode, we cover the realization that...

“Low interest rates weren’t FREE” - Mindi Sue Kessenich
 
It came at the cost of:
👉 Paying over asking, sometimes $50k $100k more
👉 It often came with having to wave inspection to stand out from the other offers.
👉 It often came with no terms in favor of the buyer.
👉It came with a horrible shopping experience that left most buyers exhausted and burnt out. It’s left most agents beyond exhausted, many with PTSD and little desire to enjoy their careers.
 
Today the market is so much better for buyers -
👉 better deals, well at least not paying over ask
👉 better terms, can actually have an inspection
👉 and way better shopping experience. You can actually negotiate. There is enough inventory to pick from.
The ONLY con is the interest rates.
But here is the thing… we can actually do something about the interest rates. We couldn’t do anything to cool the sellers' market. Get excited we can do something about interest rates.
 
What lender has the best deal? We can do something about the rates:
👉 Buydowns
👉 ARM’s
👉 Assumable VA, FHA, and USDA Loans
👉 n/a for a cash buyer
 
Agents, don’t be afraid of high interest rates, and instead, take the energy and go find the best deals from lenders. Understand the best deals and be the agent that really helps buyers find the best rates and plans.
