As agents, we're already so busy handling a million different things to get our clients to the closing table. Do we really have time to create video content??  Many agents say "No"!  Some common objections to creating video content are:

 

  • Lack of technical experience

  • Too expensive

3 Reasons Your Real Estate Offer Was Rejected

Buying real estate can be extremely emotional. After looking at several homes, you finally put an offer in on one. Truthfully, you probably have already "moved yourself in" to the home in your mind. Then you receive the news that your offer was not accepted.

The best case scenario is that you are presented with a counter offer and can get a better idea of why your offer was not appealing to the seller's. Worst case, you get no feedback. Wouldn't it be better to go into the process with an understanding of why offers to purchase real estate are often rejected?

What is an agent's relationship to their own words, and how does this self-awareness (or lack thereof) affect others?  In this video, Keelan explores mindset challenges for entrepreneurs; in particular, discussing 10 mindset pitfalls that agents must avoid.

10 Mindset Pitfalls to Avoid:

1) Generally, when an agent is motivated by fear along with developing a list of "reasons" why certain realities occur in their life again & again, they get stuck in a rut.

Usually coupled with limited action on the part of the agent, along

Top Reasons Agents Join Peak RealtyNot all companies are equal and not all real estate brokerages view the industry (and the world!) the same way. Here are just some of the reasons why agents are drawn to join Peak Realty. 

1) The culture of abundance, education, and positive interactions. There are no silos here. While every agent is an independent contractor, and ultimately responsible for the growth of their own business, we purposefully support each other’s learning and growth.

2) Coaching, training and masterminding are built in. Peak Realty keeps a low overhead so that agents can benefit from on site group sessions several times a week, as well as the opportunity to schedule private sessions for more in-depth training on specific areas needed for their business.

Key Takeaways:

  • Have a great real estate team in place to watch your back!
  • We want to keep everything on track to close ON TIME. 
  • Delays in the close date can lose you $ (ex. extending an interest rate lock on your new loan; rescheduling movers, etc.). This can be stressful!
  • If you have back to back closings and the first one gets delayed, it can potentially put your 2nd deal in jeopardy...ouch!
  • Some other things to avoid while under contract:
    • Don't change jobs and if you have to, call your lender immediately
    • Try not to lose your job while under contract...sometimes this one is unavoidable, for sure.  Just know the lender will verify employment up to the close date
    • Avoid any big purchases
    • Basically, while under contract

Key Takeaways:      

  • Some real estate agents who get into the industry simply don’t like business networking. These agents may (shortsightedly) believe the following:

    • They may not believe they’re any good at networking with other business owner
    • They may think that the people at networking events are self-serving, or “smarmy” (I had to look up this word!)
    • Finally, agents may not believe they need any additional contacts above & beyond what they already have; as such, they’re comfortable with their current sphere and don’t want to take the time to continually build their database
  • Your mindset and attitude going into any lead generation activity is paramount. Business networking
