How to connect with genuine sellers in a declining marketplace

Promoted by HomeGuru.

In a declining marketplace, connecting with genuine sellers can present a larger challenge than usual. Following the rollout of the Royal Commission into lending, many potential sellers have chosen to hold onto their properties until a more opportune time.

Their fears:

  • Are there enough buyers in the market that can genuinely afford their property?
  • Will a decrease in demand lower the market value of their asset?

At HomeGuru we work with buyers and sellers as well as agents, and have full sympathy for those hoping to move into the market that are encountering setbacks in the pursuit of their new home or investment.

We understand how much harder it is for agents to secure genuine buyers in a market that doesn’t encourage lending, creating less overall work, and putting more pressure on existing relationships. As agents, we know that you want to do the right thing by your vendors, which means guiding them through the sale process in less than ideal market conditions.

But first, you need genuine sellers!

HomeGuru is designed to guide consumers through selling, buying, investing and refinancing their homes and investment portfolios. We offer free property reports for consumers who come to our site to submit their property and contact details. Through this groundwork, we establish relationships with potential vendors who need to be connected with real estate agents with local area expertise.

Enter: You, the Agent!

By signing up to HomeGuru, you will receive seller enquiries specific to your local area. We don’t just connect you when the vendor has already committed to selling – we introduce and connect you in the preliminary stages as the local agent for their property. The idea? You are the first point of call when the consumer is ready to sell.

In these trying market times, your professional expertise holds additional weight with the consumer. Making your potential vendors comfortable with a high standard of customer service and expertise prior to going to market will help to support your position as their agent of choice when they decide to put their property on the market.

Using prominent agent branding and marketing specific to your area, we will connect you with sellers in a time where they’re seeking guidance from a real estate professional that knows their area.

HomeGuru is an exceptional cost effective tool that assists agents in securing new listings. Increase the volume of quality enquiries you receive, and target more vendors near you. The declining market won’t last forever; and there will always be consumers whose circumstances require them to sell their properties – you just need to know where to look!

Whether you’re an established real estate agent, or new to the industry HomeGuru gives you the leading edge to gain your next listing.
