I agree with David about educating the buyers, i always present the State form first explaing what agency is and what duties i provide under each types. I always let me buyers know that if i am their buyer agent i can provide more infprmation and a better service as i am looking out for their best interests. I make sure the contract is fully filled out, dont leave anything blank. Also dont use a high pressure sales tactic, they have to feel comfortable to be able or to want to sign anything. SOme people will need more comforting than others, see what they respond to and direct your approach that way. good luck

Angie:

I'll give this question a shot.

I like to educate my potential clients about the importance of knowing their rights under South Carolina Agency Law. Potential clients should know about their level of risk when purchasing real estate without representation. Everyone should work with someone that is legally (and ethically) bound to represent their best interest AND knowledgeable about the real estate sales process.

That binding occurs upon completion of an Exclusive Buyers' Agency Agreement.

In my opinion, EDUCATION is the best strategy. Educate your potential clients about the benefits of working with a Buyers' Agent. Educate your potential clients about their rights under the law and that Buyer Representation services are (more times than not) FREE to the homebuyer.

Also, I use my blog to educate potential clients about agency BEFORE meeting with me!

Hopefully, this helps with answering your question.

I wish you much success!
