The Real Estate Agent's Guide to FSBOs by [PRINT] According to the National Association of Realtors, 86% of new real estate agents don't make it past their first year. The majority give up due to frustration and the overwhelming start-up costs involved in the industry. But there is an untapped resource that will help agents take their careers to new heights;the For-Sale-By-Owner (FSBO) listing. Many homeowners try to sell their home, without an agent, believing that they can find a buyer just as quickly and avoid paying a commission. But often, nothing can be further from the truth. Author John Maloof has built a stellar career by farming FSBOs. He made six figures his first year as a real estate agent using his prospecting plan. Now, in The Real Estate Agent's Guide to FSBOs, he shows other agents how they can do the same. Using these proven techniques, agents will learn how to: find FSBOs; approach a prospect; make a listing presentation that will convince even the most reluctant homeowner; handle rejections; formulate a marketing plan; service listings; build a referral base; stage open houses; close the sale. Complete with Internet resources and a sample resume and log sheet, this is the one book that will show new agents and experienced realtors alike how to make more money than they ever thought possible.
