Expanding Your Database Daily!

agent risingHow 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 readily
available 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.

Housing Market Continues to Improve!

agent risingThe housing market continues to improve with the Massachusetts Association of REALTORS® reporting that sales as well as home prices have increased into the double digits in September compared to September 2012.

According to 2013 MAR President Kimberly Allard-Moccia, broker owner of Century 21 Professionals in Braintree, “September closed sales and prices was another example of buyer demand outpacing housing supply and that resulted in the most closed sales in a September since 2005. Interest rates are still low and qualified buyers are still there, but what we need now to get to full recovery is those sellers who are holding off, to make the commitment to sell.”

It was reported that 4,289 detached single family homes sold September 2013, this shows a 17.2% increase from last year. Additionally, this is the 6th straight month of increases and the most closed sales of any September since 2005. This is a significant increase for the housing market, which continues to show a strengthening market. Not only is the market improving but home values are also increasing, with the median selling price for single family homes being $325,000 which is an increase of 11.9% from September 2012.

So what does this mean for you? This is a great time to get into the real estate business! If you’ve been thinking of making a career change now is an exciting time to learn the business.

Find Each Other on Facebook!

How to Find Each Other on Facebook!

It was wonderful meeting everyone at this year’s MAR Conference & Tradeshow! One of the major takeaways from our New Agent Training is to utilize Facebook and other social media sites to maximize your branding and marketing campaign. Go onto Facebook and sign up for an account; whether you want to start a personal page or business page, Facebook is a great way to get and stay connected to your REALTOR colleagues! Once you are signed up make sure you go and search for all of the people you met at the MAR Tradeshow, an old friend from high school or someone you took your Real Estate Salesperson Class with! The more people you can connect with the better, and the more people your posts reach the stronger your brand will be.
