Yes, Debbie Reynolds . I have almost everything online and share my pre-list presentation plus the market analysis - all online (and try to track.)
I do not.
I didn't in the past but now I'm starting to do so. Basic info on my firm, my partner and myself as well as a few marketing strategies.
I used to email a customized PowerPoint as a pre-listing presentation. I don't do listing appointments anymore.
I do not send anything out prior but do have a presentation I leave with them. I like the two steps Barbara Todaro mentions below. Just enough to wet their whistle but no trade secrets.
we do a two step presentation....with two different binders.... the first presentation is to collect information about the property and to inform the seller of "who we are; what we do; and how well we do it"..... the second appointment is to talk about the home and price.... the second binder is the actual market analysis.... we leave both binders for them to keep....if they're having other agents in, we want them to compare.... we want them to show others what we do.... head games with other agents work well, too!!
Sometimes if I have questions, but usually when I get there to list, it is the same or following day and there is no time to send info.
Hi Debbie -- not typically but I have on occasion sent a questionnaire that I ask be returned before I meet with them. I prefer to ask the questions as we sit at the kitchen/dining room table or as they are leading me on a tour of their home.
Not generally, because usually, sellers are interviewing several agents and we do not want to give the seller time to review our material with a competitor. The seller could already have made his choice before we even get to speak directly with him.
I send what I don't want to talk about with the 5 question cover.
I send non-proprietery stuff. "About REMAX" "Preparing your home for sale" "Your team" "Expectations" (never send anything you don't want other agents to see)
When I get there the entire purpose is the answer the 5 questions without telling them until the end.
sometimes if they ask I will send a estimate of closing and a CMA
Depending upon the seller (if they were a referral or repeat) I sometimes send out a pre-listing package which consists of my marketing flyers, Q&A about Why they should list with me, and examples of some of my current listings as well as testimonials from past satisfied clients.
Debbie, I used to send pre-marketing information prior to a listing appointment until I found out the seller hired another agent who used my marketing material.
