Everyone agrees that good communication is a vital part of the
transaction process. It is not uncommon for deals to be lost and
relationships challenged as a result of misunderstandings or assumptions.
Once you have hired a professional and the Agreement has been signed…both
you and your Realtor are part of a team effort to reach your goal of buying
or selling a home at an acceptable price. Through a series of questions a
Realtor should have an understanding of their client’s wants and needs. Sometimes a client will raise expectations once
they feel their Realtor knows the details of what they hope for and expect but this
is not the time to sit back and wait. Your Realtor depends on your input.
As in most jobs they are very busy but
are working diligently on your behalf so don’t be afraid to ask for an update. Your Realtor understands this and will be happy
to keep you informed.
Buying and selling can be a long and detailed process that requires
all parties to respond in a timely manner.
Sometimes either party may not always be available but even a short
communication will show a desire to stay in touch. Emails and texts are a
great advantage but we must keep them precise and proof them before we hit send. If
after two messages we are not communicating…pick up the phone! Though not
always possible, speaking to someone directly allows them to hear the tone
of your voice insuring better communication.
It is easy to read an emotion into a typed message that may or may not
Concerning the market - Ron Washington, Manager of the Texas Rangers
once said: Play the game that baseball gives
you. For the buyer and the seller the market is defined
as what a buyer is willing to pay for a like home in that
immediate area...not based on the national trend or the media reports. Buyers and sellers sometimes start with a
mindset based on what they have read, experienced or need from the
sale. A CMA (Comparative Market
Analysis) will reflect the current average selling price of homes in that
neighborhood and sometimes a Realtor will struggle with trying to bring a
balance between their client’s needs and what is going on in the market. To stay in the game the client must be
willing to adjust in order to reach their goals. A good Realtor will try to keep their client
on course based on what was discussed but will also adjust to changes
the client may make…so again communication is key.
Buying and selling a home can be fun and also challenging at the
same time. Hurdles are unavoidable but
good teamwork creates a since of trust that helps to insure the client's final
goal is reached.

"When my husband and I needed to find a home in North Texas in a hurry we found Lana Dunlap. She helped us every step of the way from finding local properties that fit our description perfectly, through the entire loan process once we found our home, to being there to hand us the keys and welcome us to our new home. She is not only our go-to-realtor, she has also become a close family friend. I highly recommend contacting her."
