10 Undeniable Reasons People Hate Nigerian Realtors (Why DPKay Homes Realtors are Different)
There have been several negative discussions centred on Nigerian realtors. Bad news spread really fast and realtors have been perceived in a negative way. Every industry has its element of bad news, which gives the industry a bad name. Most people are not impressed with what real estate agents are doing. Like the saying goes, not all eggs in the basket are ruined so are realtors. Here are the undeniable reasons why people hate Nigerian realtors and how “DPKay Homes” realtors are different.
1. LESS HARD WORK AND MORE COMMISSION.
Most Nigerian realtors are more concerned with the size of their commission without putting the needs of their clients first. A lot of people have complained about how realtors keeps emphasising on their commission without putting so much hard work in giving them the best deal. DPKay Homes realtors on the other hand, will go as far as helping you sell your landed property without stressing you with commissions. They will also assist with land surveys and give you advice on the tiniest of details relating to properties. DPKay Homes are also well equipped with architectural renderings, land clearing, sand filling, building, construction and a lot more. Clients can never go short of DPKay Homes services as they make clients own a part of Lagos without pressuring them with commissions. This is also beneficial to Nigerians living outside Nigeria as DPKay Homes also operates in Canada with a great track record. They are known to add value to an entire transaction.
2. THEY DO NOT TAKE INSPECTION SERIOUS.
Most realtors take for granted inspections and that can lead to some unforeseen problems and that is one of the reasons people hate them. Inspections are very important to DPKay Homes and their realtors will always book a date for inspection of the locations as well as properties available at clients’ convenience.
3. LACK OF TRANSPARENCY.
Lack of transparency is another reason why people do not like Nigerian realtors. A lot of realtors go to any length to close a deal which includes crossing the professional line. Most Nigerian realtors are known to exaggerate just to have their market moving. Most clients do not see beyond the smoke and mirrors to know if a realtor is experienced or not and as such, everyone gets stuck when transactions get complicated. This is not the case with realtors from DPkay Homes because they share appropriate information in an honest and open manner. DPKay Homes also have testimonials to back up their expertise.
4. THEY DO NOT RENDER COMPLETE HELP ON PROPERTY DOCUMENTATION.
Most properties come with a lot of problems and some realtors are not truthful about acquisitions and this creates a negative image on realtors. On the other hand, DPKay Homes and Properties are free from government acquisition and omonile trouble and as such create a smooth perfection of title.
5. LACK OF EMPATHY.
Most realtors in Nigeria have been perceived as unfriendly or rude as they brag about their experience with real estate dealings but can’t help out with the “property” stress clients goes through. They come up with the excuse that they are not a “people’s person”. The poor attitude of most realtors destroys relationship with clients rather than build on it to help clients solve their problems. DPKay homes realtors give true value with their expertise. Realtors from DPKay Homes spend quality time with clients giving them clarity to buying and selling of properties as well as demystify the process. These realtors also build a strong relationship with their clients in order to give them value for their time and money.
6. THEY DO NOT RESPOND APPROPRIATELY TO CLIENTS’ NEEDS.
Most realtors in Nigeria are not good at following up with their client’s needs and as such, have created negative conceptions about them but DPKay realtors strives to exceed the expectations of their clients by meetings their needs efficiently.
7. LACK OF COMMUNICATION.
Most people hate realtors because they are very poor with communication. Most realtors feel they do not have to respond to every phone call, SMS or email and this makes clients pissed off when dealing with them. The phone is a realtor’s office so not communicating properly with clients creates a bad image for realtors in Nigeria. DPKay Homes however, takes serious every form communication with clients and treat them as family. This builds a very strong relationship that makes them easy to talk to when there is always a challenge or a question to be answered.
8. THEY DO NOT GIVE SO MUCH ATTENTION ON LEGAL DOCUMENTS.
It is true that realtors are not lawyers but with their expertise, they should know the legal requirements for purchasing any property. Most realtors are clumsy with legal information and this is one of the reasons they are hated by Nigerians but DPKay Homes and Properties are very experienced with giving legal advice that will help clients get the best of their transactions as well as help with the documentation of landed properties.
9. LACK OF RESPECT.
A lot of people have complaints about realtors giving them a certain level of respect according to their budget. Too many times, realtors always match the property to the client in order to determine if to give them so much attention. Lack of punctuality on the part of the realtors also shows disrespect to the client. DPKay Homes always listen to their clients to know exactly what they want before coming up with property matches. DPKay realtors help people realise their aspirations for the pride of ownership, comfort, security and wealth by providing excellent homes for all classes of society.
10. THEY DO NOT GIVE BACK TO THE SOCIETY.
I have heard people mention that real estate companies are the only ones that care about themselves but rarely give back to the society but DPKay Homes have created a culture of giving back to the community especially to the less privilege in need of a better life.
You can now see that not all the eggs in the basket can be ruined. There are still some great real estate companies and DPKay Homes and Properties stands out as the best. Working with them will make you see reasons why you can still trust a Nigerian realtor.
