People try to self sell their homes to avoid the cost of a real estate agent. But when they come across people who put offers blindly and get stuck with low standard offers they go in search of a loan officer. As normal people are usually unaware of the mortgage lending standards, you as a loan officer can benefit a lot from being in the scene. A good loan officer should always maintain relations with property owners, so that when they decide to sell their property they know that they have a good loan officer on their side. They can offer the buyer to get the loan via that officer.
Loan officers working for mortgage companies are always willing to help the sellers in dealing with the buyers as that helps them create a relation with the buyer. These increase the chances that they will get to finance the home loan. Always remember that as a mortgage loan officer you are on commission basis. All that you earn is only when the loan closes. People also will trust you as they know you will assist them fully in getting a potential buyer.
As a loan officer you should always be willing to meet at any prospective place the buyer desires. Say it is his/her home, your own residence or the buyer’s office. This creates an air of trust and generates a sale for you. It shows the buyer that you and your company are interested in getting the deal done. Convince them in a manner that it may seem the deal being useful to them and not you. When you are going to make a sale the more services you offer generates more chances of further deals for you.
It’s much better if you stay in touch with a couple of real estate companies. Most homes that are for sale tend to be listed with real estate companies who have name recognition, market share, large advertising budgets, business relationships with mortgage lenders and trained agents to represent those homes, hold open houses, and finagle with prospects. Agents have some level of experience dealing with people, overcoming objections, selling and closing the deal. This way you can dominate the home selling process, earn high commissions and save time in the most intelligent manner.
Always remember that a home or a land is a product people always want. You can earn benefit if you roll out the marketing plan with immense intelligence. Be sure to mark out the high aspects of your plans in front of the buyers. People are always interested in deals that benefit them.
There always is competition. Beat you competitors by giving your customers/buyers a friendly deal with good terms. If they get benefits and trust from you they won’t go towards any other loan officer. These few thing if remembered and acted upon well can lead towards the success of loan officers.
