I have seen many Active Rainers write about the high price of gasoline, and or course... complain about it. Most say they are driving less, and are trying to do the various things they can to keep their mileage to a minimum.
Now, I know there are many things we can all do to minimize trips to the office... or to be more organized when we're out and about previewing or doing other Realtor or personal errands... but that is not the subject of this post.
I have read time and time again how agents really do not want to "cart" people around from house to house... showing them homes, and wasting gas.
I take a little different view. I am wondering what the reaction will be from buyers when they call or email agents, and the agents start simply giving them home addresses to "drive by" and then hoping they will call that agent back if they want to see certain particular homes.
I am guessing that with the cost of gasoline being so high... these buyers who call and call... or email us... pestering us on and on... will not want to waste "their" gas... and will be more likely to meet with an agent they perceive as professional... sign a Buyer Representation Agreement... and finally get some good service from an agent who actually believes in giving good customer service.
It may cost me more, and some might see it as being foolish or wasteful on my part... but all I need is to make just one single sale because of it... and I have paid for my gasoline bill for an entire year !
