  • Beware! ... Some The Oldest Tricks In The Real Estate Book

    Posted Under: General Area in Gardnerville, Home Buying in Gardnerville, Home Selling in Gardnerville  |  April 28, 2012 7:15 AM  |  391 views  |  No comments
    Beware! ... Some The Oldest Tricks In The Real Estate Book

    Every profession has its tricks. We’re not talking about tricks to make things smoother, rather the tricks that prey on the unsuspecting public.  The Real Estate Profession is no different, in fact is renown for having a plethora of unscrupulous people taking advantage of the good name made by the hardworking honest Professional Real Estate Agents. The amazing thing about tricky people is that they seem to use the same old tricks and the public continues to fall for it.  Here are some of “The Oldest Tricks In The Real Estate Book”. 


    Beware! ... Some The Oldest Tricks In The Real Estate Book “If you list with me I have a Buyer for your home.”  Does that Agent not have a Buyer if they don’t list with her?  What does that tell you about the Agent?  If she truly had a Buyer that she thought the home was perfect for wouldn’t she show it to the Buyer because it is the right home for them?  By not showing them the home for her own personal reasons is she really working for that Buyer?  The reality is that 99.9% of the time there is no Buyer, just an empty promise.

    Occasionally an Agent will say he can sell your home for much more than anybody else says they can, another old trick.  This sounds great of course, more money.  The problem is that market is what market is.  Though some Agents get consistently higher prices for properties than others due to skill we aren’t talking about that here.  We are addressing the situation where one Agent will list the property $50,000 more than everybody else said it was worth. 

    What follows one of three things:


    1. He works you over week after week to get a price reduction until you eventually get to the price point where it will sell… having lost a lot of time and even money if you end up following the market down during the lost time.

    2.  The property doesn’t sell and you have to start over with a new agent only your property is now shop-worn.

    3. The property sells, but won’t appraise for the new Buyer. You end up capitulating on the price and you’ll never know if the Agent that listed too high spoke behind your back to manufacture the sale situation.


    Buyers can get duped by only being shown select homes.  The trick here is to show a high priced listing to compare the home he is going to sell them to… often the Agent’s own listing.  This is harder to do these days with the amount of information on the Internet, but it is still something to be aware of.  If truly working for the Buyer the Agent will present everything that meets the Buyer’s criteria regardless of who the Listing Agent or Seller is.

    Our Advice: The oldest tricks are still used because they work.  There are many consumer protection laws but it is hard to prove that you were duped by a tricky unscrupulous Agent so it is best to be aware.  The facts are what they are – no glossy talk will change reality. Don’t let the strength of your desires cloud your reasoning.  You should have enough information to make an informed decision, not an emotional reaction. Don’t believe someone can accomplish something that the industry can’t – they can’t either.  This doesn’t include specialty properties or insight, but that must be specifically explained. A professional Agent will help you understandBeware! ... Some The Oldest Tricks In The Real Estate Book what and why they said something so you get a true perspective and understanding of the market and how you fit in.  Tricky Agents are few, the vast majority of Agents being very professional. 

    Professional Agents work hard for you to accomplish your goals without chicanery, or tricks.

  • If You Want to "Get-Er-Done!" Stick With The Professionals ... That Have Done It!

    If You Want to "Get-Er-Done!"  Stick With The Professionals ... That Have Done It!

    "Get er done" - Carson Valley Real Estate Lisa WetzelI love this crazy business! It's up, it's down, and it's sideways!  At least it still alive! 

    A buddy was telling me a story yesterday about a loan officer that he worked with who mystically saved his transaction!  She's a legacy in our area, she taught me ... and I'm a dinosaur with 32 years in the business!

    On further look ... there was no mystery, no smoke and mirrors, no hocus pocus!  Carol ... Carol Lee Challender, (her real name has been used to acknowledge the worthy) is a seasoned veteran with a giant bag of experience.  She came to the table to make a deal and help a buyer "buy a home"!  TA DAH!Thant Have Done It - Carson Valley Real Estate - Lisa Wetzel

    Today I closed an escrow that was 5 ½ months long ... 4 ½ months with the first lender and 30 days with the lender that closed the sale. My "Magician" is Kim Marcarelli 775-586-1500. 

     Carson Valley Real Estate Experience! Lisa WetzelThe difference between a closed sale and an open escrow you might ask?  ...  E-X-P-E-R-I-E-N-C-E!

    So ... this set me to thinking!  I took a good look around.  As the lending business goes ... so goes the selling business!  It dawned on me!  TA DAH!  Those of us who are still hanging in and making a success of the real estate business are the agents who have the "Experience" to "Git-Er-Done!" as well!

    I'm certainly not measuring success in years on the job ... goodness knows there are many Antique Realtors who should have hit the pastures long ago. 

    There are a few who years are short but their transaction experience is long ... basically because they have sold quite a few homes in their Young ...  Successful ... Careers!  Christianne Gordon in my office is a wonderful example!  She's smart, she's experienced, she's a great agent, and she has the technical and experiential knowledge that it takes to be an "Outstanding Agent" in today's real estate environment.

    So ... In conclusion!  Buying and Selling in today's market are equally enhanced by aligning with the experienced agents, lenders, escrow officers, and inspectors who have the smarts and ability to ...  to "Get-Er-Done!"

    This isn't a cookie cutter business any more!
