10Skill, Business & Professional Development68772Hosting A Home Seller SeminarIt has been said over the years that “if you don’t list, you don’t last.” This may be the case in many instances. But how does a real estate professional go about obtaining listings in a systematic way to create a constant pipeline? One system component should be education. And that’s where hosting a home seller seminar enters the plan. There are a lot of existing homeowners, and many either want to sell or will want to sell soon. The vast majority understand the real estate process as a buyer, but very few totally understand the selling process. A home seller seminar should provide valuable information to home sellers in such a way that empowers them, aids them in making the selling decision and helps them to realize that it is best to have representation. A great way to educate sellers is through a seminar. So, this course will guide agents through the process of planning a home seller seminar and will provide ideas for planning specific content to include in a home seller seminar. By the end of this class, attendees will have the basic framework for Hosting a Home Seller Seminar.
