Warren County Ohio Real Estate News and Observations

Pressure Control

July 1981.  Annapolis.  I'm 17 and inches away from my face is an upperclassmen exercising his vocal volume.  I think he's pegged out at max volume.  Initially it's a bit stressful, but over time a certain immunity is developed to the high pressure approach.  Yelling isn't leading, although it does have its time and place for having the desired effect!

As a real estate agent I'm regularly exposed to high pressure approaches, both personal and professional.

Visit the eye doctor and he's pushing hard to buy my eyeglasses there (even after I express my intent to buy from my preferred shop).

The scare tactics of politicians and their minions who want me scared so I'll react the way they want me to.  Divided we fall.

The telemarketer who insists that they can't find my website (yet they found a way to contact me) and they can make me page 1 for my search terms (uh...yeah...you don't even KNOW my search terms...and guess what?  I'm already page 1 for the terms I'm most concerned about)

The listing agent who has an offer coming any minute so my buyers best hurry and get in an offer!  (and sometimes this is true....and sometimes this is the product of the south end of a bull).

Pressure is part of Life, sometimes a big part of it!

But there are things we can do to reduce that pressure.  Sometimes it's a matter of saying NO and moving on.  No to that sales pitch.  No to the scare tactics.  No to the hype.

But sometimes the path to less pressure is a matter of saying YES.

Saying yes to hiring a skilled, professional real estate agent can significantly reduce the stress of buying or selling a home.  We've been there, done that, time after time.  We know when we SHOULD be acting fast and when we should be tapping the brakes or even when we should be doing absolutely nothing at all and waiting for someone else to flinch first!
