I heard an interesting comment today from a person who was interested in selling their property. While usually this is something that you would hire say a real estate agent to do she was specifically saying that she doesn’t want to use one because she sees how much money they make. She further emphasized how nowadays most people use the Internet to find a listing by themselves anyways and so she felt weird potentially giving someone so much money if people happen to be searching themselves for the property.
It’s kind of interesting as like in this case it had nothing to do on whether or not the service provided is a good value or if it produces the desired results that you are looking for. In that sense the reason to not do business is more personal I guess you can say. This makes me wonder that in certain business on whether or not it is better to not advertise how profitable or successful your business is for example so that you don’t automatically get placed into this negative category.
I suppose this is because the common perception is that a person who makes a lot of money must be in someway unethical or that automatically they must be taking advantage of you. Is that really a fair thing to say? I would say ultimately it should come down to value and whether or not you think the product or service you would be getting is worth the money.
