Real estate career

Become a Real Estate Agent This Year

2020 is here and with it comes a new set of New Year’s Resolutions!  Everyone resolves to eat better and work out more but have you always thought about a career in real estate?  Now is a great time to start!

Projections show real estate careers will rise this year. As the housing market stays strong and interest rates stay steady,  there will be a need for real estate agents.

You can set your own destiny.  The harder you work and market yourself, the more it will pay off in clients and closings.  You are the driver of your bus.  You set your own hours and the work you put in will come back to benefit you directly.

Real estate agents were ranked as one of the happier professions.  You are making a difference in people’s lives and helping them realize their dream of owning a home.  It is very rewarding.

It is relatively easy and inexpensive as opposed to 4-year college career occupations to earn your real estate license.  Agent Rising Real Estate School offers traditional as well as online courses.   We also offer Live BootCamps and hours to get a majority of your hours in a short amount of time.

Our Rise Welcome Center on 145 Fairhaven Road in Mattapoisett, is ready to welcome students and is also offering new one-day courses for agents.

Visit www.agentrising.com  or call 508-997-8844 and see how you can fulfill your New Year’s Resolution and start taking courses to obtain your real estate license today. Check out our new classes!

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. Visit www.agentrising.com or call 508-997-8844

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.

real estate career

Starting Your Real Estate Career

You’ve finished your real estate course and passed your test! Congratulations!  What comes next?  Choosing a real estate company which fits your philosophy and goals is important.  Do your research and interview the companies you are interested in before you make up your mind.

Now is the time to make a plan.  What are your goals for the week, month, year?   You can decide how successful you will be.  You are the driver of your bus.  If you work full time at your business, you will build a successful career.  Your income potential is basically unlimited.  You can work part-time if that works for you but  the more time you put in, the more benefits you’ll reap.

Go to the office everyday.  Make a plan for how many calls and outreach you will do daily.  Stick to it.

Start your marketing plan also.  Business cards, postcards introducing yourself to the community, social media marketing are all part of this.  Get yourself out there. Pick a brand and use it as a marketing tool.   Attend your office meetings and spend as much time at the office as you can.  Consider volunteering to shadow other more experienced realtors.  Help them out and learn from them.  Working side by side with other realtors is a great learning experience.

Working weekends is usually necessary, but carve out time for yourself.  Working one day on the weekend and keeping the other open for family and friends is a great compromise.  Turn your phone off at meals and after 7 pm for peace of mind.  You want to be available to your clients, but you also need some time for yourself.  It will make you a better realtor.

Be your community expert.  Get out in your community and volunteer.  You will meet all kinds of new people which leads to more business, not to mention the good feeling of giving back to your community.

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

buying and selling

Buying and Selling in the Winter

We all know the line that Spring is a great time to buy or sell a home.  While that may be true, selling or buying a home in the winter can be a great idea especially if your house is ready and you’d rather not wait.

The housing market is still low on inventory, and serious buyers are out looking during the winter months more than ever before.  New Year’s Resolutions to get serious and buy a new home may come into play in mid-January.  The holidays are over and the busy spring and summer is not here yet, so this could be a great time for buyers to get looking.  Most buyers looking at this time of year are serious.

Buyers are usually less put off by days on the market at this time of year.  They realize the holidays could stall a sale  and will still consider homes that have been on the market for a little while within reason.

Selling your house now could mean less competition for the new home you want to buy.

Choose your price carefully! Check out the comparables and be realisitic.  Now is not the time to overprice your home. Don’t despair. If it doesn’t sell quickly, the busy spring market is right around the corner.

Winter is also a great time for buyers, even though inventory may be lower, there will be less competition and sellers are usually pricing their homes to sell.

Sellers are motivated to sell and may be ready to take your offer.  There is less of a chance of getting into a multiple offer situation.

Also, this might be a slower time for your agent, so they have more time to devote to finding you a home.

Winter is a great time for buyers and sellers alike, so bundle up and get out there.

Agent Rising Real Estate School has you covered.  Has real estate always been your passion?  We can make it happen with our online classes or tradtional classroom if you prefer.  Visit www.agentrising.com
