Relocate to Wisconsin : "You Didn't Send me Any Listings..." complained the Buyer

"You Didn't Send me Any Listings..." complained the Buyer

     Once again...Thinventory raises it's ugly head (If I were more...or at all...graphically talented...I would have a cartoon drawn some sort of monster like demeanor.)  

   We got a call from a Buyer who asked that rather than register with our search tool that you will find by clicking here, that we send and call when we see a property that fits the criteria that she has given for her home.  We home searchwould be lisitng theirs as well..yaaah....two transactions for the "price" of a phone call...BUT....we had not, could not make the call because there were no homes that fit her needs. She was not being overly picky....and had expanded her geographic reach a IS the market ! 

    We promise that as soon as a house OR condo for some buyers...hits the market that meets a buyer's criteria...or even comes close...we are on the phone and email faster than you can say, "New Address!"

     email Sooooo....we learned something....say something when there is nothing to say...That is ...take the time to email or call and say that we have been searching and researching the market and at this point in time...nothing meets their criteria and we will let them know the moment it does.

   Communication is a wonderful thing....we need to practice it more often !   Soooo now we have a regular cycle of communication to keep in touch with people who are on the "lookout" for  a new home and hope that soon Thinventory will lift and the selection will improve for buyers throughout southeastern Wisconsin.

   If you or anyone you know is looking to Sell or Buy a home in southeastern Wisconsin...Call the Hansons...we are honored to be of service.

Thanks for reminding me of some clients who need me to do more digging for them

Good morning Sally K. & David L. Hanson we were in that situation with very low iventory not soo long ago....and now listings are plentiful enough to keep our pending transactions flowing nicely....consistently....

They tend not to get 'testy' if they know you haven't forgotten about them.

Good morning Sally and David,

Sounds like serendipity Tuesday, wordless Wednesday or TBA!

Would it not be nice if we had a track like the news on the boob tube to replay with the weekly calls.

Make yourself an astonishing day.

I agree, just touching base, even if there is no news, lets them know you have not forgotten them.

Good morning Sally K. & David L. Hanson ,

Communication is the key even if its to tell them there is nothing new..they can understand that and still be frustrated but not frustrated with you for no communication or update!

It is pretty crazy out there isnt it?  Hoping your Sunday is a good one!

Posted by Kristin Johnston - REALTOR®, Giving Back With Each Home Sold! (RE/MAX Realty Center ) about 2 years ago

We are in the same situation as you are. No listings to send, but we are trying to keep the line of communication open because another phone call to another Realtor can happen in a blink!

Hi Sally and David... I keep hearing this as well. Constantly reminding buyers that I'd warned them when we started the process that inventory is tight and that their won't be a any floodgates of listings coming their way.

Hi Sally.  Touching base on a regular basis is key to keeping them loyal.

Posted by Conrad Allen, Webster, Ma, Realtor (Re/Max Professional Associates) about 2 years ago

Sally K. & David L. Hanson - This is one of the biggest frustrations.  You have a client who is ready to go but no property that fits their profile. Communication is so important at that point.

Sally and David- what a good reminder that saying something even when you have nothing is better than remaining silent. Have a great Sunday.

Sally and David we have plenty of inventory here in CT, and are hoping to move more towards a Sellers Market, but not to the extreme you guys are in.  In other words a nice balanced market :)

Posted by George Souto, Your Connecticut Mortgage Expert (George Souto NMLS #65149 FHA, CHFA, VA Mortgages) about 2 years ago

Yes, Sally and David, no news is still news and our customers expect to hear from us regularly.

This is a very good story to share. Maintain the communications even when properties are not available.
