Know Who’s Hot & Hit Them Fast (Mistake : Letting Prospects Get Away)
It’s Not Catch-&-Release
Expecting someone to buy a condo on their first visit to the sales office is like proposing marriage on a first date and expecting the person to say yes. Only 1% of people who walk into a sales office will make that big purchase commitment in the first visit.
This means that potential buyers are slipping away 99% of the time. They come in, hear a pitch and leave, but the effort shouldn’t stop there.
When a potential buyer walks through the office door, it should trigger a chain of responses from the sales team to build a relationship and keep the property foremost in buyer minds.
o Research indicates that it takes 17 “touchpoints” to sell real estate to a buyer.
o Once a prospect has browsed your website or come into your office, then the work of drawing them in should begin.
o People have little patience and no memory when it comes to fulfilling their wants.
o Generally, prospects will hear back from a salesperson within a few days, if at all. By then, whatever piqued their interest has passed.
