This is part 1 of a 2-part series by Grant. Next report he’ll discuss the Single Most Important Question to Qualify FSBOs.

Grant is going to share…

The Worst Mistake You Can Make When Working with FSBOs

And what is the worst mistake an agent could make when working with FSBOs?

* Not being choosy about who they put in the follow-up sequence.

Seven out of ten FSBOs you contact will not be ready and will not have a timeframe. If you don’t approach them correctly, they can be a drain on finances and emotions.

But out of those ten, three of them will be realistic, nice and have a timeframe.

And if they make an appointment, during the meeting ask all of the questions of a listing presentation…but act as a consultant. Find out what problems these people have that you can help solve.

Imagine yourself as a doctor or lawyer…potential patients don’t just open the phone book and choose a doctor or a lawyer…and neither do most prospects choose a real estate agent from the Yellow Pages.

Position yourself as a professional…a money consultant. Of course they’re paying you…but they’re paying you big because you know exactly what to do and exactly when to do it.

You’re worth your commission.

So what’s the point? Be aggressive when qualifying FSBOs for follow up.

Next issue Grant will tell you how to turn FSBOs into clients with one simple question.
