Today’s working smarter tip is one that many agents today don’t always remember to do. When your listing sells, put a rider on the sign that says, “under contract” or “taking backup offers.” Once the contingencies are removed, replace that sign with a big “Sold” sign. Sold signs are one of the best ways to attract other listings from the same neighborhood.
Here’s a simple working smarter tip that can help you sell your listings. When you first list a property, knock on the doors of several of the neighbors. Explain that there will be Realtors visiting the property and ask if they could help you out by calling you if they see anything left open or anything else that seems suspicious.
It’s also a great time to ask whether they know someone who might like to move into the neighborhood. Follow up with a handwritten note to say thank you to each person who agrees to help you keep your seller’s house secure.
