Time is money, isn’t it? If there were ways to conquer both, you’d be a millionaire by now and I wouldn’t have to write this blog. But alas, we both find ourselves on top of a keyboard wondering if those are seconds ticking away or the keys. It doesn’t have to be this way though. If you've been frustrated by the amount of money you have lost out on, you're not alone. Recently, renowned real estate coach and guru Tom Ferry conducted a survey of 3,330 real estate agents to tackle a question that has been plaguing them for years, what are the biggest challenges holding you back from real estate wealth? Time is money after all so I’ll break it down for you and show you how I can help.
Here are the top real estate challenges:
Needing to constantly be prospecting.
Prospecting is time consuming! If you’re constantly prospecting new leads it leaves little time to do what you do best, work in the field. After all, wouldn’t you prefer to be chasing after the hottest leads in your market?
Being able to manage time effectively.
Between showing listings, working with the banks, and fielding general inquiries, your time can get spread thin very quickly. That’s not to mention that there will always be time constraints from your potential clients.
Maintaining a database.
If I had to guess, I’d say that you probably didn’t get into real estate because you love spreadsheets. Moreover, it’s probably safe to say that you don’t want to spend time maintaining several platforms and their databases.
Remaining positive and staying focused.
One of the biggest challenges that we all face is ourselves. In the real estate market it can be especially difficult with deals sometimes taking forever to close.
With so many leads and so little time, where do you begin? Booking appointments to show properties can also lead to a lot of information competing for your attention. It’s hard to keep it all straight sometimes.
