If you’re thinking about buying a home in Orange County, or elsewhere across the United States, one of the most pressing questions on your mind is how your buyer’s agent will help find deals, or homes you’re interested in buying right?
In today’s post we will cover the most common ways a buyer’s agent will find deals so you can be more knowledgeable about the home buying process.
Step 1 – Their Personal Network
The first way a Realtor® will find deals for you in Orange County or elsewhere throughout the U.S. is to reach out to their network of connections.
Most Realtors, especially those who have been in the business for years, will have an extensive network of former clients, associates and friends who will alert them when someone in the area is thinking about selling their home.
Step 2 – Online Marketing
In 2015 the next way Realtors find new clients who are interested in selling their homes is through the Internet via their personal websites or social media.
Since we are all pre-conditioned to search for homes online anyway, the average homeowner won’t think twice of searching for a Realtor ® online if they are thinking about selling their home.
Step 3 – Open Houses
Another great way Realtors connect with potential sellers during 2015 is via open houses.
It’s no secret that both buyers and sellers attend open houses and even though some agents are no longer having open houses in this day and age, it’s still a terrific opportunity for a Real Estate Agent to connect with potential clients in the community.
Step 4 – “Farming” The Neighborhood
Last of all, but most important, a Realtor can find more leads for their client during 2015 by “farming” the neighborhood and asking neighbors there if they might know anyone who is thinking about selling their home.
Yes, “farming” a neighborhood might be an “old school” tactic, but it’s still effective and a great way for homeowners in the community to get familiar with a Realtor ® if they are thinking about selling sometime in the near future.
