Marketing with Videos

Videos are a powerful way to market to your audience, and the possibilities are endless! You can create a video to market a specific property, highlight a happy customer or share information. But it seems that most people shy away from videos, whether it be fear of the unknown or it’s possible they’re camera shy. So we did some research and came up with great tips on how to start creating videos.
1. Define your audience– before you even pick up the camera and begin filming you need to decide who you want to reach.

2. Define your goal-decide what message you are trying to get across to your audience and how.

3. Pick a topic that has done well in a different format and convert that into a video!– Can’t think of anything new for a video? Use something you’ve already created, such as a video for a blog post that’s already been written.
4. Record yourself reading your script– Use your phone or whatever tool you have and practice!
5.  What’s better than a video testimonial from a happy client?  Ask your client is they wouldn’t mind giving you a two-minute testimonial.  Short and sweet is the best. It doesn’t have to be perfect just genuine.  Use your IPad and record them telling about their experience.
6.. Embed your video into your blog, website or share the link on your social networks– Share with your target audience and look for feedback.

holidays

Holidays are a Great Time to Buy

holidaysThe holidays will soon be here and it’s a great time to spend with family and friends. On another note, it’s also a great time to buy real estate. You may have to brave the elements, and put up with the craziness of the holidays, but it is definitely worth it.

Although inventory is generally limited, if you are persistent, you have less competition and can negotiate a great deal.

Also, sellers are usually motivated if they decide to put their home up for sale during the busy holidays.  There are many reasons why a seller may have to sell their home soon, such as relocation or they may want to be in their new home by Christmas. This can all work in a buyer’s favor.

There may be great tax advantages to closing before the end of the year depending on your tax situation.  If you are in the market for a new home, it can be a great decision to start looking.

Interest rates are always fluctuating but tend to lower at the end of the year.  It’s not a given, but a trend a buyer can take advantage of.

Sometimes closings are quicker at this time of year.  Even though lenders, and real estate agents are busy with their own holiday plans and work less, there is a great incentive to close before Christmas and finish the deal before the New Year.

Has real estate always interested you? Are you ready to take the next step and start your real estate career? Agent Rising Real Estate School has you covered.  We offer online courses and Live Hours and Bootcamps to help you fulfill your requirements and prepare you to take and pass your real estate exam.

New Year

End the Year on a High Note

It’s December 2nd and we have a limited amount of days left for the year but there is still time to end the year strong!

With all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, it’s tempting to let your business slide and wait to pick it up next year, but there is still time to do both.

We know there is much to do with shopping and decorating and wrapping, but its a great time to spend with family and friends.  It’s important to work family time in with all your activities.  Enlist your family’s help to wrap presents, and make holiday treats and spend a fun night decorating and enjoying family time.

Don’t let your day to day business fall by the wayside.  It might not be a great time to start a new initiative, but daily maintenance on your business is a must.  You can also incorporate the Christmas holiday into your business with holiday cards and pop-by gifts. A great December means a great January.

It’s also not too late too start your real estate career.  Start your online course this month and attend our Live Hours Bootcamp in January and you could be a real estate agent in the New Year.

database

Expanding Your Database Daily!

How do you expand your database of potential clients?  First, take another look at all
of the people who provide services to you.  Your hair stylist is providing you a service.
Wouldn’t it be great if you could do the same for her?  Your mechanic is providing you
a service, wouldn’t it be great if you could do the same for him?

Even if they are not currently in the market to buy or sell a home, you can still be of service
by becoming their information source on all things real estate related. It may take a little
practice, but you need to become adept at offering your services on a regular basis. Just as
you would be interested in receiving car maintenance advice from your trusted mechanic, or
hair color recommendations from your trusted stylist, they will appreciate getting housing
market information from you, their trusted real estate agent. Be careful not to encroach on
another agent’s client.

Create your value communication items – Find sources of real estate related consumer information.  If you are a Realtor, these are readilyavailable on the National Association of REALTORS’ website www.realtor.org.

Rehearse your lead generation conversation – Sketch out and rehearse a potential conversation you might have with someone who provides you a service. Maybe something like:  “You always do such a great job on my hair, Becky.  I hope that some day I can be of service to you.  Do you have a real estate agent that you are working with now?  (If yes, back off.  If no, then continue.) Would you mind if I occasionally sent you
some information on real estate related topics? I will leave you my business card, but what is your mailing or email address?”

Keep at it, and before you know it, asking to be their real estate connection will become second nature and your database will continue to grow.

Has real estate always interested you? Now is a great time to start on the road to a real estate career.  Start with our online courses and finish with our Live Hours! Visit www.agentrising.com for more information and to enroll or call 508-997-8844

Real Estate 2020

What will 2020 bring in the real estate world?  Here is the latest news on how the real estate market will fare in the New Year!

The indicators are predicting that home sales will increase and be a shining star in the economy of 2020.  Sales from existing homes and new homes will keep the real estate market on solid ground.

Real estate sales activity are predicted to increase in 2020, contrary to past beliefs that sales would decrease in the coming year.  The reason for this could be linked to low mortgage rates.

Inventory still continues to be an issue.  There is a shortage of homes to sell in comparison with the buyers out there looking. This is more of an issue with lower-priced homes and first-time home buyers. This means more time to find the house of your dreams.

While predicting the future is never completely accurate, mortgage rates are predicted to creep up slightly but still stay under the 4% mark.  This is good news for buyers and can help with their sense of urgency to find a home.

House prices are expected to rise in 2020 but at a slower rate than 2019.  It all depends on what housing market you are looking at.  Some markets are actually seeing a price drop which may continue in 2020.

Since home prices have risen in the last few years and mortgage rates have stayed lower, the country will see a lot of refinancing in the year ahead.

All in all, 2020 seems like a year of small changes and could look a lot like 2019.

Agent Rising Real Estate School covers everything real estate.  Are you ready to take the next step and start your real estate career? We have online courses as well as Live Hours to help you pass your real estate exam.
