Resting on your Laurels, eh?

Real estate markets like this one reveal the true Professionals amongst us.

If you’re a Realtor who primarily works with Home SELLERS, you’re likely enjoying this “shooting fish in a barrel” environment. Heck, any Realtor who accidentally utters anything akin to “new listing coming soon”, and you’ll likely find yourself smothered by a ravenous frenzy of the gagillion Buyer Agents who have been cruising incessantly to catch even a hint of the scent of chum.

For some people, these are the conditions which lure them into a race to the bottom. Suddenly, ethical boundaries seem to blur, fade, or disappear altogether in the most lucrative circumstances.

Some listing agents are choosing to reduce their services – skimping on the customary “pre-listing” activities like hiring professional photographers, staging the decor, landscaping, and going to the trouble of creating a solid marketing plan.



Others know that this market WILL shift and are continuing to practice the fine art of quintessential seller representation.

So . . . Are you sharpening your saw while these times are good?
