In my office we have fresh bagels every Wednesday morning as part of the rituals associated with our weekly office meeting. Some weeks they are more beautifully presented than others. This morning one of our newer agents was artfully arranging them on a platter in neat rows facing the same direction.
It was my turn to lead the office meeting. Seeing everyone thoughtfully chewing, I asked them if they were enjoying the bagels?
Nod, nod, "yes" they replied
Did you enjoy the bagels we had last week? (I asked)
Puzzled looks, followed by nod, nod "yes"
Great. I want everyone to know that I saved some of the bagels from last week. I have them in the kitchen, I've even placed them on a silver platter
So what would it take to get you to choose one of those bagels?
What if I paid you to eat one of those bagels, would $1...$10 be enough?
They had gotten my point. Today my topic was stale listings.
It's hard to motivate agents to consider a stale bagel, and it's definitely hard to get agents to pursue a stale listing. So I polled my associates and asked them how long before a listing is stale. The consensus?
Just some food for thought
