Today we’re covering the second half of my series on the 10 valid buyer criteria, where I talk about what qualities make for a good buyer to work with. If you haven’t seen it already, visit my last blog post to see the first five criteria discussed. Here is the second set of five:

6. They are not contingent on selling their home. This is a tough one because a lot of people depend on the money from their current home to buy their next one. However, there are ways of buying non-contingently. The ideal situation is to work with buyers who aren’t tied down to their own sales.

7. They’re willing to spend the time. Many people aren’t willing to spend the necessary time with you to sell a home.

 

      Pick the people you want to work with—pick your business.

Today we're going to cover five of the 10 criteria that make up a valid buyer. If these criteria are met, you work with them. If they're not met, you just stay in touch with them until they’re ready. Learn which criteria they’re missing so you can educate them and move them in the right direction. Here’s what you need to look for:

1. They're willing to meet ahead of time. This way, you can explain how you work, go through the process, and set expectations.

2. They’re motivated. Determine if they’re motivated to buy a home.

3. They have a sense of urgency. They may be motivated by a home, but doing so may not be urgent for them.

4. They’re fully pre-approved. This can shave so much time off of their search and purchase process. You can get them to close faster, which makes them a stronger...

Welcome to part two of my two-part series about valid listing appointments. To see the first four criteria of a valid listing appointment, watch the first video here. These are the final four criteria you need to know:

5. All decision-makers need to be present. I know that can be difficult, but they all need to be there. This isn’t just the people who are on the title; anyone who is helping to make decisions needs to be present. Friends, family, whoever it is, ensure they’re at least on a conference call or video call at the appointment.

       Everyone should be present for your appointment, even if it's on a conference call.


6. Schedule enough time for the appointment.
I typically schedule about two hours so that I have enough time to answer all their questions. When...

Today I’m here to share the first four of the eight criteria needed for a valid listing appointment. If these eight criteria aren’t met, it’s just a meet and greet. These can help you be best prepared for listing appointments. They’re also great for reviewing the appointment afterward and seeing why you didn’t get the listing.

Without further ado, here are the first four necessary elements of a valid listing appointment:

1. They want to sell. They don't just want to get a home valuation or appraisal.

2. There’s enough information for a ballpark market analysis.

3. You’ve asked them how much they want to sell their home for.

4. You have pre-qualified them over the phone. You don’t want to get stuck talking to family members who don’t have the right to sell the...
