I think they have made some very good points (especially for new agents) when deciding to work with potential buyers.  Although, their post is written referencing an Orlando Real Estate Buyer, these tips apply to buyers in any real estate market area.

Orlando Real Estate Home Buyer or Tire Kicker?   Orlando home buyer

There is a big difference between a Orlando Real Estate Buyer who is serious about buying a home in Central Florida and a Real Estate Tire Kicker who is wasting everyone's time.  Here is how I can tell:

Real Estate Tire Kicker:

  • Sends an e-mail asking a vague question and only gives first last name, no phone number, or bogus number.
  • Calls the office to inquire about a property but does not want to engage in a conversation.
  • Is on our website searching for homes from $100,000 to $5 Million.
  • Wants to go see property, but does not want to discuss financing.
  • Time frame to buy is open; will wait for the "right" situation.
  • Never asks your opinion about the real estate market, because they already know everything.

Real Orlando Home Buyer:

  • A true Orlando Home Buyer will provide credible information about themselves at first contact.
  • A serious Orlando Home Buyer is eager to know more about areas and price points.
  • A motivated Orlando Home Buyer is willing to talk about their financial capabilities or problems.
  • A determined Orlando Home Buyer will want to know about the home buying process.
  • A real Orlando Home Buyer will search for homes in a specific price range, with a time frame in mind.
  • A ready Orlando Home Buyer will not dance around your questions.

A good relationship between a Orlando Buyers Agent and a Orlando Home Buyer must have open communication and honesty. There is nothing that a buyer can tell me that will shock me or make me blab to anyone.  You will receive 100% loyalty, strict confidentiality, and full disclosure.  So, if you are not kicking tires. call us.

If you are serious about buying a home, we are serious about helping you.  Call for a complimentary home buying phone consultation to discuss your needs and learn about your best home buying options

Donna, thanks for the reblog, I did miss this one.  So well written and a subject we all have to deal with.

Ellie: I agree. It's a difficult spot for a real estate agent trying not to alienate a potential buyer and yet we can't spend time and gas with people who just want to look and have no real seriousness to buy within a reasonable time frame.

This one needs to be framed and placed strategically by the phone as a reminder to us all; thanks Donna for the reblog.
