Why Asking the Right Questions Is So Important

We live in times, and we have for many, many years, where we have been taught that questioning is a bad thing. We are admonished that curiosity killed the cat, with murderous implications tossed freely into the air. Take care, or your curiosity will get you into trouble,” we’re told by anyone who gets a chance. And who can blame them? We’ve all been conditioned out of questioning, and when we do ask questions we either get in trouble or we’re shamed for it. How many times have you been made to feel stupid for asking a legitimate question? Remember in class, maybe at work, or even at home?! Enough times with that experience, and you just say “forget it,” and you stop asking questions. Well that ends here. 

At Tyler Goff Group, we not only encourage you to ask questions, we even give you some ideas about what questions you should make sure you’re asking your realtor, whether or not it’s us! The bottom line is, you have a right to know everything that is happening, every step of the way with your real estate deal. The problem is, you don’t know what you don’t know. That’s why we have plenty of resources to help guide you through the basics of the process and a list of questions you should be asking your realtor, questions we are happy to answer for you. Just ask! 

Here, we’d like to address a couple of the most important questions to ask in real estate, so you feel empowered to ask even more. 

  1. Do you have a prospect management system? 

Wait, what? If you’re not in real estate, or marketing, or philanthropy, you may not even know what prospect management is, much less that you should ask about it. Tyler Goff Group absolutely does have a tried and true prospect management system in place, which means we have experts doing regular prospect research on upcoming homes for sale and potential buyers on the market. We also stay abreast of market values, assessments, and neighborhood values. All of these factors combine to make your experience truly unique and get you what you want. 

  1. Are You an Expert Negotiator? 

Yes. Yes we are expert negotiators. We have years and years of experience working with our partners and allies in real estate to make sure we close the deal with all parties feeling satisfied. Now, the real question is, what does it mean to be an expert negotiator? It is important to us that you know that we aren’t cut throat negotiators trying to pinch every penny and burn the competitor. The true art of any negotiation lies in knowing the value of the product or service in question (we do) and knowing when to be willing to walk away (we are), which requires knowledge and confidence, and we’ve got both in spades. So now you know why we’re good at what we do.
