What is a Countertop Sales Force?
If you have taken the time to watch the Wolff Couple’s investment training DVDs, you are likely already familiar with the Countertop Sales Force. For those of you who haven’t, your Countertop Sales Force is a collection of flyers and paperwork – customized for each property – that you should have at every open house. It’s the materials that you give potential homebuyers as they tour the home, so that they have all the information they need when they leave. There are quite a few materials involved, so we’re going to break it down piece by piece. Look for upcoming blog posts on everything from the house marketing flyer to little things that can make a big difference, like nice pens! In today’s post, we’ll be giving you an overview of the Countertop Sales Force and how to make it a part of your open house pitch.
How to Use It
Your house marketing flyer will give a potential buyer a lot of great information, but the most important component of any open house is you! Remember the A.B.C. of real estate investment — “always be closing!” The buyer will have everything they need to contact you if they leave the property, but you want to close them right then and there if you can.
Create a Sense of Urgency
Your goal is to get the buyer to make a decision and a down payment before they walk back out the door. One way to help them make a commitment is to create a sense of urgency. Remind them that they have competition, and that you’ve talked to several other people who are seriously interested in the home — “that couple over there is interested too!”
Ask for Money Down
Let potential buyers know that you want to make a decision in the next 24 hours, and that they need to put money down so they don’t miss out! Ask them how much money they could put down on the house right now, and see if they’ll fill out an application. If you can’t close them in that moment, they will at least have your beautiful flyer you created to remind them of all the features they loved about the property and to keep your contact information close and easy to find.
