spring real estate market

Spring Real Estate Market is Already Here

The spring real estate market may seem like a month away but is actually already here!  Buyers have been out looking steadily since the beginning of the year and inventory is low!

Now is a great time to put your home on the market before we get into the busy summer months.  With less inventory available, there is more competition for your home. This can translate into a shorter time on market and a better price.

Don’t hesitate. Buyers are out looking right now.  Start preparing your home for showings now to put on the market as soon as possible.

Has real estate always interested you? Are you ready to make the career move and start your real estate career?  Visit www.agentrising.com  We have LIVE hours and a  LIVE Boot Camp.  Join today and start your online course now and finish up wit- your LIVE hours and you’ll be ready to pass your real estate exam.

Our next LIVE Boot Camp is March 6th and 7th! There is still plenty of time to sign up!

realtor safety

Realtor Safety Issues

Realtor safety is always an important issue. It’s always a good time to revisit steps to prevent tragedy. Realtors can be put in dangerous situations during Open Houses and showings and need to be aware of steps to take to keep themselves safe.   Here are some tips for common realtor situations.

Make sure at least one personal contact and your office knows where you are at all times.  You should let them know where you will be and when you feel you will be done.  Check in when you move on.

Meet new clients at the office first before any private showings.  Have them complete a client information sheet and copy their driver’s license and vehicle information.

Open Houses:  Have another realtor or co-worker share the duties with you and set up a sign in sheet with client’s information.

During open houses and showings, let your client proceed you through the house, especially when going down into the basement or upstairs.  Keep them in your line of vision at all times.

Park on the street to be able to leave easily.  Do not let a client block you in the driveway.  Drive around the neighborhood and acquaint yourself with the layout,  be aware of the easiest and fastest exit routes.

Know all the exits to the home and make sure they are all unlocked.

Leave your purse and valuables in the trunk of your car and have your cell phone in your hand.  Leave the expensive jewelry at home.

Never allow a client into your car unless you know them very well and feel very  comfortable.

Check out the safety apps for your phone.  Have the local police department saved on your phone and have them ready to respond at the touch of a button.

Last but not least, trust your gut.  If a situation makes you uncomfortable or makes you uneasy, remove yourself  and reschedule.  Your job is not worth your safety.

family time

Real Estate and Family Time

Juggling your real estate career and your family time can be tricky but definitely worth it.  There are many ways to accomplish this.

Make family time an appointment.  When you have an important family event simply treat it as an appointment and tell clients you are booked at that time.  Give them another time to meet.  Most will understand.

At the beginning of  the year, plan your vacation  and pre- book family time and stay committed to it.

Have a friend in the office that can help you out when you have conflicts in your schedule. This can be reciprocal, when he is in need of help also.   There are times when time is of the essence.  If you are unavailable, have someone at the office who can cover for you and you can do the same for him or her when they need a hand.

Set aside one day per week to get away from work and spend quality family time.  We all need some downtime. With the craziness of the business, you always find yourself on the phone at all hours of the day.  Stay committed to spending one day a week without the phone and enjoy uninterrupted family time.

Share your work  with your family.  Talk about your highs and lows.

Put aside time for family dinner.  Real estate agents aren’t doctors.  Phone calls can wait an hour while you have dinner with your family.

Sometimes it may cost you a client or two, but in the course of your career, if  you take the time to keep your family foremost in your life, it will make you a better realtor and clients will respect you for that.

Please visit us at www.agentrising.com for more ideas on how to make your real estate career shine. We are committed to helping all agents R.I.S.E. in their real estate career. Call 508-728-3648 and talk to Kate.

winter storm

Winter Storm Tips

Even though it may seem like we’ve had a pretty easy winter so far, yesterday’s wind storm reminded us that we still have a lot of winter left whatever the Groundhog says.

The high winds and rain left many roads impassable with downed trees resulting in many power outages throughout the Southcoast.

While we can’t change the weather, here are some tips to be prepared for the next winter storm.

Keep an eye on the weather and weather alerts so you are not caught off guard when the next storm hits.

Check your home’s ability to keep out the cold, such as weatherstripping, insulation, and caulking to prevent frozen pipes and heat loss.

Make sure your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are all in working order.  Replace batteries if needed. These can be life-saving during a storm.

Loss of power is always a given.  Make sure you  stock up on essentials and flashlights with batteries. You may want to fill your tub for toilet flushing if you have a well.  Better yet, consider investing in a generator which can get you through many days without electricity.

Consider your elderly family and neighbors also.  Check on them and make sure they are ok and if they need assistance with any chores, especially snow shoveling.

Winter is still with us for a couple of months, so it’s always better to be prepared.

Agent Rising Real Estate School has your back and has everything you need to start your real estate career.  We also offer continuing education credits and classes for seasoned agents.  This includes broker and designation classes.
