Is It Outdated to Still Leave a Business Card After a Showing?- EP 98

August 9, 2021

On this episode of the Real Estate Fight Club podcast, Jenn and Monica are really excited as this is the 98th episode and the love they are receiving from their listeners is enormous! Today, they are going to duke it out over the question, “Is it outdated to leave your business card when showing house? Tune in for the verdict!

 

Episode Highlights: 

  • Monica says that it is absolutely okay to leave a business card in a showing, so that it tells the owner that a particular agent has already checked the house. On the other hand, Jenn is not for leaving business cards in a vacant house; She says that it just creates a pile. 
  • Monica inquires, “If I was the listing agent, do I want the seller to know the names of the agents that went there?” 
  • Monica asks Jenn, “Do you feel a little bit anxious about your seller seeing other agent’s cards?”
  • Leaving a business card at the counter can inform the owner that the agent has left; Although, Jenn sees no point in leaving the business card as the owner can easily get a notification in their super key. 
  • Explaining her thought, Monica says, “The seller should be made aware that somebody was in their house. If it’s electronically, that would be great.” But in the absence of an electronic device, I think as an agent it is important to notify the owner that, “I have been at your house.” 
  • Monica says since there is no technological solution yet, using a business card is the only option. She says it is a form of communication between you, the showing agent, and the seller. Jenn is still not keen on the idea.
  • Steven Khalilzadegan, the tiebreaker for this episode, compares the circumstance of when the market was slower, and the units weren’t moving as fast to the current market and why leaving business cards is no longer required.
