What Real Estate Agents don't want you to know - Then why do they post it on Youtube?

I always thought that if home sellers actually knew the sales strategies and tactics that many of the top traditional real estate agents use to get listings and to convince home sellers to reduce their price they would be shocked. I thought real estate agents would want to keep this quiet and behind closed doors. Then one day I went to Youtube...

Real estate agents and trainers post this information on Youtube. You can watch videos of the listing presentations they use to convince home seller to list their homes with them. You can watch agents making cold calls to home sellers that have expired listings. You can search Youtube for real estate scripts to see examples of all of the canned sales talks they have for every situation. How do you ever know if the agent is being sincere or are they just really good at their script?

If you click on the following links you can see what comes up on Youtube...

» Real Estate Listing Presentations
» Expired Listing Prospecting - Scripts
» Door Knocking Strategies & Scripts
» Pricing Home Strategies & Scripts

I think once you see this you might want to find an alternative way to sell your home…

One video I watched was being presented by a top real estate agent in Washington teaching a class on how to handle pricing during a listing presentation. On the video he explains how he presents 10 active listings, 10 pending listings and 10 sold listings and then asks the seller based on all of this information, in you heart, what price do you think your home is going to sell for? The home owners responded to him and said they think it is going to sell for $400,000. Then he says to the class, that was even lower than he even thought they would say and the sellers came down from an original price of $700,000. Then he tells the class the home sold within 30 days.

Does this approach sound like he is working in the best interest on the seller? 

You can watch the video and let me know your opinion: Click Here 

I would like to know your thoughts...
