Many real estate professionals market themselves as going the extra mile. And like all reasonably abstract terms, this can be defined as anything. Some historical examples of “going the extra mile” have included:
- Performing customized exorcisms.
- Pretending to love their clients’ pets.
- Open House weekends during apocalyptic blizzards.
And by the way, this is all great. It may even hit the extra two-mile threshold.
The mile stops here
The problem with this extra mile-ness is that due to the all-consuming nature of the search, many new home owners see “offer accepted” as the end game. In reality, as anyone who’s ever moved knows, the work only ramps up after the close.
That’s when the search-battered mover is suddenly faced with a 100-car pile-up of unconnected, time-draining, complex tasks involved in shutting down one household and transferring everything to another.
Then there are budgets to create, renovations to consider, and dozens of vendors to sift through. And just to compound the misery because – why not? – a number of these tasks are time-sensitive; missing the cut-off date for updating official documentation can lead to some extremely frustrating, even punitive consequences.
Cue the Mover’s Dread
It’s at the point where the sheer volume of this impending task load sets in that many new home owners find themselves on their own. That’s because, all too often, the REPs who lovingly ferried them from listing to listing have raced off to their next prospect as soon as the home sale went through.
The sense of urgency that kicks in around this time is something we’ve coined mover’s dread. It’s the moment when visions of paint swatches and backsplash tiles morph into sleepless nights over logistics, costs, service reliability, and the impending avalanche of tasks.
