Real estate is a great place to put your money in. With wise real estate investments you can retire young and rich. One way to make money in real estate is by acting as an agent. A real estate agent acts as the go-between. He is the person who facilitates the sale between buyer and seller. Now the question is how do real estate agents do it? With the money involved in real estate deals you can be sure that closing a deal is not easy.
Here are some methods that real estate agents use in selling houses.
First, grow your buyers and sellers list. When it comes to real estate brokerage buyers and sellers are equally important. You may think that buyers are more important because after all, they are the people with the money. But without a seller there can be no sale. Professional agents have a buyers and sellers list. This list is strictly confidential. This is one thing you wont be handing over to just anyone. This contains all the details of your buyers and sellers as well as of the properties you are selling.
Second, increase your network. It has been said time and time again that your network is equivalent to your net worth. So expand your circle of influence. You can do this in many ways. One is by attending social functions like galas and charity events. You can meet many wealthy people in events like this that can prove helpful to your endeavors. Another is by playing golf. Golf is a popular sport that many rich people indulge in. And you can bet that many do it not just because of the game. It is one great way of getting to know many influential individuals. You can also get to know a person by the way he plays golf. Watch how honest he is in playing. If he can’t be honest in a golf game then you can be sure he’s integrity is questionable.
Third, go to public auctions. This is a great place for getting good deals that you can refer to your clients. Of course you might not have the time to go to every auction. So what you can do is to obtain a list of the foreclosed properties of each bank in your vicinity. Take a look at the list and recommend any property that might match your buyers requirements.
