Spring is here, and with it comes home buying season. If you’re in real estate, it’s about to get really interesting. There are also some unique challenges you and your buyers might be confronting in the market now. Let’s get to what you need to know. The housing market has been red-hot for quite a while now. Sales for both new and existing homes have been on an absolute tear. But last month, both of these metrics took a step back. One likely reason for this is no doubt a moderate increase in mortgage rates. However, it seems to me we talk about that enough.

Everyone has an opinion about it and no one can agree on it. Some say scripts are just a shallow representation of a natural conversation between the real estate agent and the client. Others claim that it’s a very helpful tool—especially for a less experienced real estate agent—and scripts may help them overcome many unexpected situations. Well, we think there is a grain of truth in both of these statements and we should examine the scripts case more carefully. So, why are real estate agents so confused about scripts?
