Did you roll your eyes? Be honest. A few months ago when you were asked to use zoom, or do showings on FaceTime, and you were told that this was likely to be the new way forward, did you roll your eyes? I know that most agents did. Most agents believed that we would quickly return to normal. However those of us who can see how much the behaviors of consumers have changed in recent months, especially in their shopping habits, Know that consumers are never going to return to doing things the way that they did them before. Yet most realtors are still holding out hope, and still clinging to some age old practices that never seem to die. I’ll spare listing them in this video, but take your pic and I hope this is obvious to you. A lot of you probably don’t like it when I say it but in the near future the closing is actually going to take place in an app on the buyers phone. You’re probably not going to be there. The buyer is going to pull up to the home, open the app tap a few buttons and be given a code to open the lock box and receive the keys to their dream home. You see that may not be what you want. But that’s what consumers want. That’s how young people like myself buy everything else. If you still don’t believe me, because you believe that everything the way it is, is the way it always will be, I would be happy to enlighten you with tale of when realtors met with Buyers to complete loan applications, about when we sold homes and there were no such thing as home inspections, about when we sold homes and there was no such thing as buyer representation, or when we sold homes without lockboxes, computers or smart phones. Trust me I grew up in a real estate office and my family has been doing this for almost 60 years. In fact I would challenge that anyone who believes things should remain the way they are, is for the status quo, and not forward thinking. Now is the time for this industry to embrace new technologies and move boldly forward. If you want to be surrounded by a broker who is ready for the next 20 years of this business, I can help you project your value and continue to still make top commissions. we should talk. Because you see here’s the thing. All of these technologies are already in development and coming. What you want to avoid is having your fee/in half, or even worse. because These technologies are going to replace processes that you are currently a part of. Message me and I can share more with you about how you can project your value in this new market.
