Kyle Hiscock's curator insight, November 6, 2014 9:38 AM

Buying a home isn't as easy as walking into a house agreeing on a price and the house is yours.  There are a lot of moving parts and that's why it's important you hire a buyer's agent!

Successful real estate agents work long and at times, very weird hours.  It's not unusual for a real estate agent to not have dinner with their family because they are out showing houses to buyers until 7,8,9 at night.  Doesn't sound like a ton of fun does it?  

Now imagine how upsetting it would be when the real estate agent finds out their buyer went to an open house and was "Stolen" by the agent at the open house and they wrote the purchase offer...all that work for nothing!

This is only one thing a buyer can do to really upset a real estate agent.  There are many things that a buyer can do to upset an agent.  @Bill Gassett has put together an awesome article that gives many examples of buyers doing things that can be not only frustrating to a real estate agent but down right wrong!

Check out Bill's article at http://www.maxrealestateexposure.com/things-buyers-do-that-real-estate-agents-hate/. ;

Who Said Social Media Can’t Work For Real Estate Brands? | Today's Real Estate | Scoop.it

John M. Holland's insight:

According to the National Association of Realtors’ annual survey, over a third of all home buyers today are under 33 years of age, tech savvy, grew up with the internet and heavy social media users. Digital and social media have also become the ports of first call for the older generations of buyers. If that’s where buyers are, it’s no wonder social media and the internet is where realtors need to be to engage with potential buyers and convert them in paying clients.

Buffer's Complete to Mobile Social Media Sharing | Today's Real Estate | Scoop.it

Mobile devices are fast becoming the preferred method of reading, sharing, and engaging with online content. It’s strange to think that the content we create on desktops and laptops will end up on dozens of different screen sizes before all is said and done. It’s a good lesson to keep in mind.
