    Episode 28: Should You Suggest That Your Clients Use a Home Warranty?

    In Episode 28 of the Toe-2-Toe Podcast, hosts Jenn Murtland and Monica Weakley duke it out over whether you should suggest that your clients use a home warranty. Hear why Monica is very careful about never pushing in one direction and why Jenn thinks the home warranty should be used as a negotiation tool. Episode Highlights: Should you suggest that your clients use a home warranty?Monica presents the home warranty as an option, presenting the pros and cons.On the listing side, Monica says that if they decide to offer it you're covered during the listing but if the buyer doesn't happen to ask you've thrown away $500.Jenn says the average home in Ohio goes quickly and for those homes, she recommends warranties.She uses the warranty as a negotiation tool.Jenn says that if something does come up during inspection and they don't have someone that can do the work, the warranty can come into play.Monica asserts that once you fill out that form to have them covered during the listing process then you are obligated if the house sells to pay for the warranty.Monica believes you have to pay for the warranty once you've signed up.Jenn points out that with newer homes, some warranties will already be in place.Jenn thinks her vendors are often better than the vendors associated with the warranty.Monica points out that some people will rave about how great a warranty is and others will trash it, having used the same product and company. This can be tricky.Jenn provides an example of how she used a home warranty with a condo to manage issues and repairs.Whether a warranty makes sense depends on the house and the client.Monica feels that agents should have good familiarity with the home warranty product they’re offering. Jenn disagrees and says that the home warranty company can provide that education. Jenn says most buyers will ask for a home warranty.Monica and Jenn compare their different scripts for managing questions from clients.Monica ultimately recommends presenting a home warranty as a neutral option.The last thing you want to do is recommend it in some way and be wrong.Jenn reminds us to use the home warranty as a negotiation tool. 3 Key Points: Home warranties can be offered to clients as an option. You may wish to be careful about pushing them one way or another. Home warranties will make sense for some homes and some clients, but not others. Home warranties can be used in the negotiation process as a tool. Resources Mentioned:Jenn Murtland LinkedIn | FacebookMonica Weakley LinkedIn | FacebookToe 2 Toe Podcast Facebook Page

    Episode 27: Should You Specialize as a Buyer or Listing Agent, or Can You Do Both?

    In Episode 27 of the Toe-2-Toe Podcast, hosts Jenn Murtland and Monica Weakley duke it out over whether you should specialize as a buyer or listing agent, or offer both services. Hear why Jenn feels that you absolutely should specialize and why Monica thinks most agents can run a full-service business.Episode Highlights: Should you specialize as a buyer agent or a listing agent, or can you do both?Jenn says you should specialize because when you specialize in something, you become a master at it. Monica feels perfectly capable of serving clients on both sides of the deal.Jenn thinks being a buyer's agent requires a different skill set than being a listing agent.Jenn says she would prefer not to work with buyers because they take more coddling. A listing is generally more of a business transaction.Jenn emphasizes knowing who you are. There are nuances to each of the roles.Monica argues that they are both consultative roles that aren’t that different.Newer agents typically start on the buy-side.Jenn describes what traits she thinks buyer's agents have vs. listing agents.Monica argues that most agents fall in the middle space.They discuss the time advantages of focusing on listings.Monica emphasizes the ability to morph your business when you can represent both sides of the deal.When they surveyed other agents, most people agreed with Monica.Monica reiterates that most people can act as full-service agents.Jenn thinks you should specialize, learn the nuances, and win. 3 Key Points: Some people feel that choosing to specialize can help you achieve mastery and better serve your clients. Some people feel that agents can use their consultative skills in either role. If you’re a new agent, know yourself before choosing a specialty.Resources Mentioned:Jenn Murtland LinkedIn | FacebookMonica Weakley LinkedIn | FacebookToe 2 Toe Podcast Facebook Page

    Episode 26: Should Listing Agents Allow Multiple Showings at the Same Time?

    In Episode 26 of the Toe-2-Toe Podcast, hosts Jenn Murtland and Monica Weakley duke it out over whether listing agents should allow multiple showings at the same time. Hear why Jenn feels that they absolutely should, and why Monica emphasizes communication in these circumstances. Episode Highlights: Should listing agents allow multiple showings at the same time?Jenn says absolutely.  Jenn says the number one benefit is that it can create an auction effect.Even if those are the only two showings you have all week, it creates the feeling that this is a hot property.Urgency has created a negative impact on buyers over time because they don't want to be in a bidding war.Monica finds that the sense of urgency can cause people to do things before they've thought it through.On one occasion, Jenn was representing a buyer in a multiple offer situation. They got it but then the seller didn't respond to any inspection requests and it voided the contract and they took another one.The obvious benefit of having multiple showings at the same time is to create competition.This is also efficient for the sellers.Watch out because buyers may act re-actively in these situations. If you have a house that is small, it may feel smaller with lots of people there. This also applies if you have a driveway issue.Monica reminds us to talk through this issue with your sellers so they know how to respond.Ask your buyer how they feel about this situation in the consultation process.Ask if they want to avoid that time or maybe they don't care. Understand how your buyers feel.3 Key Points: Holding two showings at the same time can create a sense of urgency for buyers. The obvious benefit of having multiple showings at the same time is to create competition.  Remember the buyer’s perspective. Communicate with them and prepare them for this situation. Resources Mentioned:Jenn Murtland LinkedIn | FacebookMonica Weakley LinkedIn | FacebookToe 2 Toe Podcast Facebook Page
