Philadelphia, Bucks and Montgomery Counties Real Estate. Tips for home buyers, home sellers by Gita Bantwal,Realtor at Re/Max Centre Realtors.

My strengths help me help home seller in any market.

I work with home buyers and sellers. I love to meet with home owners who are thinking of selling their home. 

When I go on a listing appointment I am prepared with the comps and all the available information about the house. I find out whether the owner had purchased with the help of another agent, whether it was listed in the past and how much the sellers paid. 

I am a good listener. At the appointment I ask few questions and let the sellers speak. 

I do not have scripts . I get the listing by being honest and answering all questions sellers have. I assure them they can call me anytime . That I always answer my phone . I do not screen calls.

I am good at marketing.  It is important to market the home well.

I am good with numbers. I can do comps easily because of this .I price the home based on sellers motivation to sell. Sometimes it is priced to sell quickly. 

I am well organized . 

My weaknesses. One thing I have to work on is saying No . I try to help everyone who needs help. I sometimes do not have time to have lunch.

I do not find time to go to the gym.

Another weakness is being on active rain when I could be doing other things. If I spend half hour on active rain instead of one hour I can us the time to exercise or go for a walk . I have not bologged in last couple of months but am going to start soon .I hope to spend less time on active rain.

Another weakness is chatting with friends on the phone. I do not feel like telling them I am busy. I wait for a call to come in so that I can honestly say I have a call coming in.

When you read about events please check the year for the event as some people find information a year later and think it is for that year. . The posts remain online even after the event.
