So you’re ready to buy a house but who do you decide to use for an agent? In today’s cut throat world of real estate, agents are pulling out all the stops when it comes to wooing buyers. Now, when it comes to private jets, powerboat rides, and fancy restaurants you’re going to need to be a high end buyer.
So, say you are looking into some multi-million dollar properties. Here are some perks you could possibly enjoy when going on these million dollar shopping sprees.
According to CNN.com Money, Ken DeLeon, a realtor in Atherton, Calif., the highest-earning zip code in California, recently took delivery of his own private plane. He uses it to give buyers — particularly overseas investors — aerial views of what could essentially be their next backyard.
In another high end market, builder Al Ross of Houston is including concierge service with each home he sells. His homes range from $4-$5 million. Good for one year, the service includes seasonal flower and plant renewal, cleaning of the home’s exterior and gutters, touch-ups to walls that are scuffed or scraped, and other services.
Clients “want to know that you are there for them when they need you,” Ross said.
Each home also comes with a three-year warranty on its construction. If anything breaks, he’ll fix it, no questions asked. “It’s no different than buying a very luxurious car,” he said. “You expect everything to function properly.”
And in Cape Cod, realtor Jack Cotton uses his own personal touch to win over clients. He will take potential buyers out on his powerboat. He works with properties on the high end, which he defines as the top 10% of the market.
“That’s kind of our secret weapon,” he said of his boat. His clients enjoy cruises of the nearby inland waterways to “experience the lifestyle of being here.”
He mentioned his counterparts in Colorado will take their clients out skiing, and Manhattan realtors take potential buyers out in limos.
