Before trying to show a potential buyer a home for sale, home brokers should first know the needs and capabilities of their clients. Brokers are the experts in this transaction and having an in depth knowledge of their clients can gain their trust which can spell the success of the home sale.

Residential real estate brokers act as consultants for homebuyers in getting them what they need. However, homebuyers may have limited knowledge of options that are available for them. As experts, brokers should supply these buyers with the information they need regarding these opportunities, which may well suit what they were looking for in a home.

Brokers should ask buyers to sign a buyer representation agreement. This would make real estate brokers more flexible in searching for homes outside the multiple listing services (MLS) grid, or even for FSBO homes.

It would be more practical to search for prospective homes online or through virtual tours instead of heading out their in person. Doing so would provide real estate brokers with a short list of homes that could cater to the needs and requirements of the client.

Go beyond the clients’ budget range when searching for a home. Top real estate brokers practice this method where they could find great bargains for a lower price, or great homes for a few extra thousand beyond the client’s targeted price range.

Homes brokers should maximize their time by grouping prospective clients according to their needs then match them to the house short list. From there, schedule group showings according to a map previously prepared to maximize use of time and gasoline.

To maximize time during the showing, brokers should let clients know that it is okay to pass on a drive up for homes they do not want to see or check even at first glance.

Finally, brokers should not assume or wait for buyers to tell them what to do next. They should ask buyers directly so both the broker’s time and the client’s needs are catered.
