It’s not how many leads and appointments an agent generates-it’s how many they close that matters. Closing a real estate deal is all about how you negotiate. There is a difference between a top closer and the typical salesperson. It’s about negotiating in good faith, whether representing buyer or seller. How to overcome objections get that a “yes” from what seems to be a “no,” and end up with delighted clients leading to future referrals. Participants in this session will learn how to persuade sellers to get real about their prices, to get over-priced listings priced right, and to persuade reluctant buyers to buy now, all while providing the highest quality possible customer experience to their clients.

Pricing Strategies: Mastering the CMA

TAR VTEL Presentation

Provider Number                001
Course Number                 33058
Credit                               8 non-legal hours

The 21st century has so far presented multiple challenges to the real estate industry, notably a housing boom and rising property values in the early 2000s, followed by economic decline, mortgage defaults, and a very unsettled market place that has only recently begun to stabilize. Determining property values depends more than ever on professional expertise, competence, the best use of technology, and a commitment to approaching the pricing assignment from all pertinent perspectives. This course is specifically designed to help residential real estate agents and brokers enhance their skills in pricing properties, creating CMAs, working with appraisers, and guiding clients through the anxieties and misperceptions they often have about home values. As real estate professionals gain more understanding of pricing properties and CMAs, they can effectively function in their role in the valuation process.

The goal of this course is to equip the real estate license holder with pertinent information to enable them to price properties appropriately whether it’s for listing or making offers. It will provide a greater understanding of the CMA’s to help the real estate license holder become more comfortable with the process of selecting appropriate property comparisons; how to make adjustments and where to go for quality information to ensure the most accurate assessment when calculating adjustments. Help enhance skills in creating accurate property valuations, reducing risk, and applying alternative valuation methods to properties under consideration.
