Active Rain Contest idea. Initial buyer consultation.

Active Rain challenge idea.

There are many agents here who work with buyers. In some states we have buyer agency  I do not know the laws in all states.

We find it difficult to get buyers to sign buyer agency contract. There used to be a time when agents used to answer a call on floor time and if someone called on a sign they would go right away to show the house.

These days agents are careful and make sure they are not wasting their time.

There are agents who work with just preapproved buyers . 

For an active rain challenge , I thought agents could write a post about their initial appointment with buyers and buyer consultation. Do you just go and meet them at a house or first meet at your office ?

Those who are in other fields can write about what they do at the initial appointment.Do you explain the buying process? Do you work with buyers who are not looking to buy for a year or more ?

Write a post of about 150 words about your initial appointment with your client. Include a photo.Everyone who writes a post should receive 750 points in addition to the 225 regular points for the post that they would receive that week .

Even though I know the benefits and reasoning behind having buyers sign an agreement tying them to me, I have still never done that.  Even though the world has become less trustworthy, I am still the type that wants to believe in a person's word.  I get burned from time to time, but I look at it as dodging a bullet of having to deal with or know an immoral person.

Hi Gita, interesting topic to write about. I have used the Buyer Broker agreement in the past, but recently, in the last 5-7 years I stopped. I do take the time to explain the agency relationship, and also invite Buyers to sign the agency disclosure. It is not binding, rather it's informative for the Buyers.
