3 Ways To Find Listings For A Buyer

 

 

3 Ways To Find Listings For A Buyer

 

 

 

 

Here are  three ways to find a home for specific buyers. 

 

#1

I announce, the buyer's specific needs in a home, on my weekly radio program.

 

Radio Margaret Rome

 

 

#2

I place an ad in print media.

 

Buyers Margaret Rome

 

#3

I make a flyer stating:

 

''Dear Home Owner, 

Our family would like to live in this neighborhood. We like your home and if you are thinking of selling, please contact our real estate agent:

Margaret Rome 410-530-2400 mrome@homerome.com  All calls are confidential.”

 

 

These flyers are given to the buyers to keep in their cars. When they see a home they both like, they can slip the flyer into the mailbox or front door. I instruct them to let me know which homes they are interested in so I can be prepared when/if the call comes in. I can do the research in advance – how much it is assessed for, how long the present owner has lived there, taxes, comps, etc.

 

Why wait for the perfect home to come on the market? Anyone can wait for a home to show up in the MLS. Be proactive!

These days, some sellers may be holding back, thinking they will wait until the market gets better.

Just because it’s not in the MLS, don’t assume a home isn’t for sale – especially if it seems like the perfect home for your buyers.
