Two biggest reasons Realtors don't show new homes


by David Fletcher

The two biggest reasons 50% of all Realtors don't get involved with selling new homes according to a study commissioned by Builder Homesite that surveyed 3,009 Realtors:

1. Fixed price - Realtors are trained to negotiate price and feel that this is one of the most important services they offer the buyer.

2. They can't get comfortable with finding inventory.

Here's a game changer 'what if"...What if Realtors understood that the only way the resale prospect will know what his money will buy is to see, touch and feel what they can get tor their money, and that is why showing a fixed price new home to a resale prospect is so essential.

Many of these prospects are frustrated resale shoppers because they cannot stand the renovation stick shock, so they decide to wait when in reality many are buying new homes because everything is new, and they understand to the penny what they are getting for their money.

The benefit of the fixed price is that it is the only..and we are talking ONLY way a resale prospect can see, touch and feel what they can get for their money. In our opinion, the fact that prospects find it so hard to understand the money when it comes to resales is a big reason they decided to wait. Help them understand the money by showing a new home model first in the price range they are looking for resales and watch both your resales and new homes sales increase.

The strategy is to help Realtors deal with their fears and concerns, not learn about the homes.  Our builders look forward to seeing 50-60 new homes oriented  Realtors in their models every month," Brown said. 

More than 1200 local Realtors have earned their NHCB designation through our program, and the Osceola County Association of Realtors (OSCAR) is now marketing the course to its members.
