Top 10 Real Estate Agent Tips--Florida Real Estate School LarsonEd

Top 10 Real Estate Agent Traits: Part 2--LarsonEd

Here is the second half of the Top 10 traits and skills our sellers told us they are looking for in selecting an agent:

6. Sellers want to know the cost AND value of your service. Of course they want to know how much your commission will add up to, but they also want to know what they will get in return. If you are able to list off your qualifications upon request, the seller will be more likely to see you as an asset.
7. Sellers want you to appreciate their property’s attributes. This tells them that you are paying attention to the positive qualities in their house, which means you’ll be more likely to utilize these as selling points to buyers.
8. Sellers want to know that the property will be shown in the best light. It goes without saying that the better the property looks the more likely it will be to sell, but the seller also wants to know that you know how to stage a home properly (link to staging PR).
9. Sellers want to know that you will creatively market the property. Will you be active with advertising, both online and off? This will give the seller confidence that you will accomplish your task of selling the home.
10. Sellers want to list with an agent who has a good client base of potential buyers. The more buyers an agent knows, the more likely they are to find one that wants the seller’s house. 

Hopefully these tips will help you become better prepared to meet client expectations for real estate agents.

About the 20 Hour SAFE Comprehensive Mortgage Loan Originator Course
Federal and state laws require that state-licensed mortgage loan originators complete NMLS-approved pre-licensure education at an NMLS-approved school. Larson Educational Services is a Florida-based NMLS-approved school - NMLS PROVIDER ID: 1400171 and NMLS COURSE ID: 1181.
Mortgage Loan Originators or MLOs are an integral part of the real estate transaction. As a licensed MLO, you will be working with mortgage lenders to obtain financing for potential home buyers and you will be paid based on the financed dollar amount. It is a challenging, but financially rewarding career choice.
All MLOs are regulated by the state in which they will originate loans and must be registered with the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System or NMLS. The curriculum development team at Larson Educational Services has developed this course to include the mandated hours and topics and to reflect the body of information required for an entry-level mortgage loan originator.
At the conclusion of this course, you will be armed with the knowledge to legally, safely and efficiently serve the needs of today’s borrowers and lenders in real estate financing transactions. The course workbook combines detailed text, student notes, and sample questions. The course is updated as necessary to reflect ongoing changes within the mortgage industry. This course includes ALL exam preparation materials necessary to be prepared to pass both NMLS exams, including the Uniform State Test (UST) questions.
Key Objectives of the Course by Unit
  • Unit 1: Florida Specific Laws and Rules
  • Unit 2: General Mortgage Knowledge
  • Unit 3: Federal Mortgage-Related Laws
  • Unit 4: Mortgage Loan Origination Practices
  • Unit 5: Mortgage Loan Originator Processes
