1. Homes are bought by comparison. I have a large inventory at my disposalthrough MLS while you have an inventory of one.2. I am very familiar with competitive houses so I can help you position yourhome well.3. It is hard negotiating for yourself. I have lots of experience in writingcontracts and can negotiate aggressively on your behalf.4. Buyers are not always forthright about their financial situation. I insist onpre-qualifying before I even bring you an offer.5. My lender contacts and mortgage experience help buyers get thefinancing they need.6. Most buyers don’t want to tell the seller why they don’t make an offer. Ican probe the buyer or his agent for that information.7. Any follow up you do with a buyer can be seen as desperation. Ifollow up as part of my job so that you are not perceived in acompromising light.8. I can showcase your improvements better so that you don’t appear likeyou are “selling.”9. Most sellers who spend their time as a For Sale By Owner end up bylisting in the end. A recent NAR survey found that only 11% of sellersnationally ended up selling by owner. Why spend your time and money ifin the end you will hire a REALTOR®?10. Unqualified buyers can tie up your home. I make sure that doesn’thappen.11. Personality conflicts with a buyer can get in the way. I come between thebuyer and the seller so that personalities don’t enter in.12. Most buyers use a REALTOR®, which increases the number of buyers whowill see your home.13. I can mobilize my company agents and other area REALTORS® on yourbehalf.14. An NAR survey of recent closed sellers found that REALTOR®-assistedsales brought in 20% more sales price than For Sale By Owner sales.15. A FSBO sign makes you vulnerable for any curiosity seeker or unsavorycharacter. When you list, only buyers accompanied by a REALTOR® willget into your home.16. Being accessible to show your home limits your personal time and cutsdown the available showing time. When you list, your property will beavailable during normal showing hours and the prospect will always beaccompanied by me or another REALTOR®.17. Additional exposure through MLS and the Internet brings you a higherprice.18. I orchestrate the contract-to-closing process, including the appraisal,buyer-loan process, title, inspections, pest control, survey, etc., taking thisburden off of you.19. I make sure that you are compliant with all laws relating to the sale ofyour home.20. I only get paid when I get the job done.

My last post covered the benefits of hiring a realtor. By now, yo
"You came recommended from a reliable source and gave us the impression from the beginning that you cared about our needs and limitations. You made available every property to meet our needs; even the internet website postings. You were accessible to show the properties when we desired to see them. You were patient for over 6 months while we waited for the right property to meet our needs. Chip made it a personal issue to himself and his team to find the best house for us and to care about our needs and limitations. We felt his struggles with what we struggled with and felt the joy in him and the team when we felt joy. We connected! Come on, what can we say? Y'all are an awesome team! Just keep treating every Client the way you treated us; with honesty, respect and integrity and you should not only have a loyal clientele but the knowledge of having truly helped those you work with. Our experience with TREMP has been both a pleasure and a blessing. Feeling that we were not going to be easy Clients to work with because of our limitations, we assumed that we would have been treated with an uncaring attitude. However, from the moment we walked through the door to the time we signed the contract on our house we felt like family. They made us feel like we were part of a team reaching for a common goal to find our family a home and a future in that home. We walked away saying, "Wow! We will be friends forever." Thank you TREMP for a wonderful home experience."
