The Closing Word: Prepossession

Image of Closing Word LogoThis week we continue our vocabulary-building series, “The Closing Word.” Each week we provide a new word to help build your vocabulary and show you how to specifically implement it in business. A well-spoken, intelligent agent inspires confidence with clients and colleagues alike.

This week’s closing word:


Pronounced: (pree-poh-ZESH-uhn)

1. an opinion formed beforehand without adequate evidence, i.e. a personal belief or judgment that is not founded on proof or certainty
2. the condition of being prepossessed

1. preconceived idea, preconceived notion, preconceived opinion, preconception
2. condition, status (as in: a state at a particular time)


1. “It can be hard for buyers to let go of their prepossessions about gentrifying neighborhoods. Too often they can’t see past their memory of when an area was on the skids.”

2. “My clients prepossession that I knew the area since I’d lived here for twenty years helped me win their business.”
