Here are a few dumb things that real estate agents do that they think make them money (they don’t.)
- Buying Print Ads
Whether it be newspaper or magazine, agents will waste money running unsuccessful print ads because their seller told them to.
- Getting The Latest BMW
Don’t be the agent that assumes they’ll get more business with a nicer car.
- Running Out And Buying The Next Great Notepad
Don’t distract yourself with trying to get over organized in your business. Better use of time would be making calls.
- Making Calls And Not Leaving Voicemails
Why would you ever call somebody and not leave them a message or a call to action to call you back?
- Hosting Open Houses In The Morning
Some agents host open houses in the morning because it’s better for their schedule, as opposed to when all the buyers are looking for homes, which is in the afternoon. Buyers come to see homes on the weekends when they have the time to do it.
If you’re a real estate agent, and you’re doing any of these things, stop. Think I missed anything? Leave a comment down below!
