Respond to prospects right away

Have a system in place for responding to inquiries within several hours (maximum). Remember “time is of the essence” and you are competing with every other seller in the market.

Use your reply to qualify the prospect and sell yourself as an agent

An inquiry is the first step in looking for property. Don’t think of this as just a request for information. Use this request to become the agent for the entire process and don’t just answer the question of “is this property available.” Important questions to ask include:

  • Have you been looking for property for long?
  • Do you have special requests regarding your purchase?
  • What areas are you interested in?
  • Would you be interested in spending some time looking at multiple properties in this       area within your budget?

Make sure listing information is detailed and accurate

Always double-check your listing before publishing it. Mistakes happen but it’s frustrating for the client to find a property that is priced at $329,000 only to learn that was a typing error and the property is indeed $392,000.
