As a REALTOR®, you’re a champion for your client’s best interests, guiding them through the complexities of a real estate transaction. Your expertise instills confidence and trust, and with RPR (Realtors Property Resource®) at your disposal, your capacity to deliver positive outcomes is unparalleled.
Let’s examine five ways RPR’s indispensable tools can sharpen your negotiation skills, ensuring each client’s journey leads to the best possible destination.
1How Data-Backed Valuations Earn Client Trust
Gaining a client’s trust requires starting with an objective valuation that can stand up to scrutiny. RPR’s RVM®—the Realtors Valuation Model®—gives you that starting point. It’s an automated valuation of a property, using a vast array of data points and predictive analytics. It’s the foundation upon which you can build a solid case for a property’s worth.
However, the true skill of a REALTOR® is shown in taking these RVM® estimates and refining them. Factors such as recent home improvements, the property’s unique features, and the local market nuances are all taken into account to adjust the valuation. This refined value isn’t just a number—it’s a starting point for negotiations that reflects a deep understanding of the property’s true market position.
Consider the success of James and Penny Brockway, the REALTOR® duo who utilized the RVM® and Refine Value tool to pinpoint a value that captured the essence of the property, resulting in a win-win sale.
2The Unique Value of RPR’s CMA
RPR’s CMA is your secret weapon for customizing your comparisons to match a property’s unique features. It involves a detailed process where you confirm the subject property details, select comparable properties and make informed adjustments. Through RPR, you can tell your client’s property story with quantifiable data and spot-on analytics, offering a convincing, custom strategy for any negotiation.
Our upcoming webinar will walk you through creating a data-driven CMA, step-by-step, ensuring you’re equipped to handle any negotiation curveball.
