Buyer Lead Management System May 16th, 2016 | Posted in Other Interests

The buyers who answer the questions, the ones who have a smile in their voice, and the ones who want to move forward with you are the buyers that we are looking for!  This initial consultation can occur either over the phone or in person.  The following form should be with you at all times at a listing presentation, an open house, or anytime a situation arises that you hear, “I am looking for a piece of property” or “Could you find me . . . ?”  You must be ready to determine whether-or-not they qualify to become part of your business this year.

Like the seller form (which we talked about in last week’s posts), the buyer form can also be used by your front-line gate keeper, assistant, or whoever takes messages for you.  The goal is to have the gate keeper/message taker obtain all information.  Once this information has been obtained, the client put under contract, and the property closed, a crisp $100 bill will be found waiting on the desk of the message keeper who performed this very important duty.

You will find that by utilizing this system, people are much more likely to interview a potential buyer, rather than just take a name and phone number thus starting the all too frustrating “Telephone Tag.”  More commonly, you will be personally using this form at either an initial face-to-face meeting or phone meeting.  Furthermore, this form can also be modified to go on your website so that buyers pre-qualify themselves before you spend time with them.

Buyer is a seller!       Yes     or      No                  (see Seller question list!)

 

REMEMBER:

Ask appropriate follow-up questions.  REMEMBER: a sale of the buyer’s home will provide surety of close to a seller of the home that the buyer desires.  This plus few, if any, contingencies, a large deposit, a pre-approval letter, as close to full price as possible, a note and picture from the buyers will almost guarantee an acceptance.  How many of the above do you have?
