Contacting a Real Estate Agent Online


Most consumers contact real estate agents online these days - most commonly by clicking a "Request More Information" button.  The odd part is, when those agents spend time researching information and responding, most people don't ever reply to the agent or even confirm receipt. So what?

Well, let's start with how agents get paid.  Agents ONLY get paid when a house sells. EVERYTHING they do is all "for free" until a deal comes together and a sale is closed. So when you request information online and the agents don't respond or ask questions before giving you more information, they are simply protecting their valuable time - especially if you are contacting them in the evening or on the weekend.

So how do you get the home information you need? 

The answer is simple really, actually respond to the agent! Agents want to work with people that want to work with them. When you show respect for their time and motivation to move, you will find many more responsive agents. After all, wouldn't' you want the same respect?
