Held an interview today for recruiting someone to take charge of the marketing at Commercial Real Estate Association, went pretty well. Then I went to Shasta and took out all the construction guys for a sushi lunch. The guys look like they are going to have a late night.
Then I went over to two properties that an agent needed to get offers for. One was on a hilltop in Chula Vista with an asking price of $175,000. After looking at it as it was really chopped up, messy, no garage, had building violations and even had a $9,000 fine that the seller wanted the buyer to pay I felt $100,000 was a more likely figure.
However when one doesnâ€™t have any information on the property before going to look at it, it can be tricky to give a realistic estimate. So there really should be a qualifying system so that while agents will always choose you to call first when they have a property, you arenâ€™t running all day wasting time looking at properties. As you make it easier for agents to call you this system becomes all the more important once you start getting 5 -10 property review request each day. Eventually one can also train others to look at the propertiesâ€¦ I might pick up one of the guys working on the construction job at Shasta.
