In as much as we still need the help of real estate agents to find the best homes, we are never really aware of how much it takes them to find the right listings. Any real estate agent would tell you that the biggest problem they do face is getting new listings. When you get sellers to list with you instead of buyers, then as an agent you will have the best commission. The reason as to why it is so much better to work with a seller listing compared to a buyer listing is because when you are working with a buyer listing without a buyer listing agreement you are likely to lose your commission. New real estate agents have a problem when it comes to finding the best listings because they are just settling in their new careers and they still do not know a way around the real estate market. The following article seeks to educate people on some of tips to finding the best listings.
Firstly, call everyone that you know. What it means by calling everyone that you know is that you should get hold of your phone, go to your contacts and call everyone that you know of. This is how you will get to build your network. This would mean that you go out on coffee or drinks even with the people that you do not know. When you finally go out for those drinks or coffee, you should ensure that you talk about real estate and those people should tell you where they live and if they do plan on relocating. When it comes to real estate, you should always remember that connections are very vital when it comes to building your clientele.
Eventually, you should ensure that you contact your local major developers. This is the kind of thing that is so easy to say than do. As a real estate agent, it is important to note that you will have to make it your business to at least know one or two local developers from your place. You should also know that the developer you get to know may be already working with another agent but that should not stop you from making them like you. This way, whenever they get a new listing in future, they will send it to you. The other way in which you get those new listings is by posting on social media platforms.
