Success Tour 2014 -3

At North Eastern Group Realty, we are committed to serving our clients with excellence which drives us to pursue educational opportunities for our REALTORS. The Brian Buffini Success Tour webcast from Virginia on April 9th, 2014 was an excellent opportunity to be motivated and inspired. The message complimented that of the 12 week Peak Producers class that is wrapping up on April 29th. Brian reminded his viewers that successful agents:

1). Promote constantly
2). Build relationships
3). Are highly skilled
4). Provide value
5). Serve fastidiously

Consumers have more access to information than ever before. There are hundreds of real estate websites on which to view homes and research communities which is why 90% of home buyers start their search on line. Ultimately, however, 92% of those home buyers will ask a friend or a family member for a referral to REALTOR who can be their trusted adviser throughout the process. That is why at North Eastern Group Realty it is our mission to serve each client so well that they will recommend us to the people that they care about.

Planning the Perfect Open House

April 17th, 2014

OK, I admit, the headline of this blog post was somewhat misleading; despite everything you and your Fort Wayne REALTOR do to prepare for your open house, the weather or a major local event may inhibit attendance. Despite this unavoidable factor, you and your REALTOR should prepare to put your home’s best foot forward.

Since you and your REALTOR should have done all repairs and staging of your home prior to listing it, your home should be pretty well ready for the open house. An little extra sprucing up and cleaning should be all that is required. Some of this “exra effort” should be focused on cleaning the inside of appliances and de-cluttering kitchen cabinets, drawers and the pantry. Buyers will open cabinet doors and drawers. If yours are stuffed to the gills, buyers will assume your kitchen lacks enough storage space. Clean the windows to let in the most light possible. Open all the curtains and blinds and turn on the lights in the house. Buyers like bright homes. Make sure the lawn is mowed and the walks are swept. Put away yard clutter like hoses, toys, or pet water bowls. Clean the fingerprints off the storm door. First impressions count. Remove shampoo, soap, toothbrushes, and other personal items from the bathtub, shower, and sinks in all the bathrooms. Store them in a shoebox under the sink. Removing personal items makes it easier for buyers to see themselves living in your house.

You have done your work, now get out of the house and let your Fort Wayne REALTOR® sell it! Potential buyers will be uncomfortable discussing your home if you’re loitering during the open house.
