What do i do to convince sellers to list their home with me?

Asked by Ph, Charlotte, NC Mon Mar 2, 2009

I want to appeal to sellers. Any advice would be helpful. I want to be different, amaybe hand deliver a postcard but have no idea of what to write on it.

Help the community by answering this question:


I would concentrate more on yourself and your abilities. What sets you apart? Look at other listings and the marketing then look at what you can do. What is going to make you stand out. Are your ads better, do you advertise somewhere they do not. Do you do target marketing? You need to concentrate on what makes you stand out. Then you can market yourself appropriately. Charlotte is a tough market I know. So good luck

Hope this helps,

I market to sellers a few different ways. I have subscribed to a lead generation service for the past 4 years and it has given me 80 -90% of my business. I now also marketing to expired, FSBO's and withdrawns with a personal letter introducing myself and a copy of my marketing plan.

Once I get in the door, I have a "seller's package" that I have put together using several sources. Its contains examples of my advertising, letters of thanks/recommendation from past clients (I find this to be very powerful), my marketing plan - what I plan to do for them in the next 30 days (it gives them a time table and makes me accountable), of course a CMA and a sheet on helpful tips to prepare their home for the market.

If you want to email my privately, I would be happy to email you letters and package information so you wouldn't have to start from scratch :O) Good Luck!

Heather, I would also appreciate knowing some of your marketing approaches. I have a marketing degree, a realtor's license and am a professional photographer. You would think this would get me in the door, but getting in the door is really tough. I thank you in advance!
