If a prospect calls while you¡Çre at work or away from the phone, learn how to call them back without placing yourself in a poor bargaining position.
Determine the motivation of the buyer, as the buyer¡Çs motivation will dictate how you negotiate.
Make sure you¡Çre talking to a qualified buyer and not someone who can¡Çt afford your home.
Employ the appropriate voice and demeanor for every situation.
Don¡Çt take things personally, even if the prospective buyer talks about tearing out the wall of your favorite room.
Know how to react to offers and make appropriate counteroffers.
Make sure you understand every step of the sales process from initial offer to closing. Real estate transactions are complex, and any misstep could cost you the sale.
