The rise of iBuyers in the marketplace is alarming for a lot of agents, but their popularity doesn’t need to spell disaster. What is it about iBuyers that attracts clients, and is it possible for us to work in harmony with the new platforms? How can we stay afloat in the age of technology and internet-based competitors? On this episode, co-owner of Team Stites, David Stites, and CEO of My Rocket Listing, Nick Shivers, share how we can work alongside iBuyers, and even use them to our advantage.
Change is inevitable- accept that iBuyers are here to stay and start looking for the opportunities they present. -Nick Shivers
Three Things We Learned From This Episode
- Stop thinking it’s all about money
A lot of agents assume our clients are focused on getting the most money possible. However, that’s not always the case. Other factors, like convenience, are huge factors that our clients take into account. Listen to clients and tailor deals to their needs.
- Take advantage of iBuyers
iBuyers offer convenience to their customers, but they also offer opportunities to their competitors. Take advantage of the information available on the platforms and educate yourself on what they offer. By knowing more about our competitors, were better able to show our clients why we’re the better option.
- Don’t fight change
While iBuyers are a scary concept, they’re definitely not the first threat to the real estate industry. To stay afloat in the market, we need to be open to adaptation and focus on what we do best. The changes in the industry are chaotic, but there will always be opportunities for us to thrive if we adapt along the way.
iBuyers definitely pose a threat to the real estate industry, but they also present us with opportunities. We need to use the information they share freely to educate ourselves on what they do, and begin strategizing how we can do better. Most importantly, remember that change is inevitable, and i-buyers need not be the enemy.
