Summer Real Estate Market

Summer is fast approaching!  What can you do to be assure a successful real estate summer?

Keep up with technology! Technology is always changing and new apps are always popping up.  Keep up with the newest apps. Be familiar with the latest ways your clients are finding homes and looking on the web and be knowledgeable to help show your worth as their agent.

Also, don’t forget your older clients who are unfamiliar with technology and not comfortable using it. You may have to go old school and actually finalize transactions in person.  Older clients may prefer the personal touch but they are a great source of referrals.

Stay abreast of new builds and maybe find a builder or contractor who is willing to keep you in the loop and vice versa.  Helping clients find a new build they will love can be a win win for both of you.

Don’t forget to keep in touch with past clients.  A simple note or popby can help remind them why they worked with you in the first place.  They may be ready for another move or may know someone who is.

Finally, remember why you got into the real estate business in the first place.  Helping people find a home for their family or sell a house to move on is a huge decision in their life.  Being there to help guide them through the process with the least amount of stress possible is a huge part of being a realtor.  It can be an extremely rewarding experience for all the parties involved.

Fun Real Estate Facts

Real estate is a great business.  It can be exhilarating and exasperating all at the same time.  Here are some fun facts you may not have known.

Why are so many doorknobs made of brass? Brass doorknobs can actually disinfect themselves and kill bacteria.  Other metals which have the same qualities include iron, copper and aluminum.  You can skip the hand sanitizer!

What’s the best day to list a home? While Sundays get a lot of reviews, surprisingly Thursdays and Fridays are the best days.  These houses have more property tours and sell quicker and at  a higher price.  Might be worth knowing when putting on a new listing.

In the USA, people typically burn their mortgage papers when they finally pay off their mortgage.  In Scotland, it is traditional to paint their front door red once they pay off their mortgage.

What are the best words to use when listing a house?  We always think of cozy and homey as great terms to use but if you want your house to sell faster and for a higher price, use the words gorgeous and beautiful instead.

Just a few thoughts to brighten up your day! Are you ready to make real estate your career?  Agent Rising Real Estate School has what you need with online courses as well as brick and mortar classes.  We even offer intensive two-day boot camps!

Real estate is always changing and evolving and sales always fluctuate.  What is happening in the real estate world this month? Well, a little good news, bad news conundrum.

Good News. Mortgage rates dropped this week.  The 30-year fixed rate mortgage fell to 4.06% from the 4.28% average from last week.  A year ago it was at 4.40%.

Bad news. Even though rates dropped, February home sales dropped 1%.

That being said, rates are always fluctuating and home sales regularly go up and down depending on the season.

We are now officially in Spring and longer daylight hours, so the market is heating up!  It’s a great time to buy and sell real estate!

The real estate market is hopping! Change is in the air! With all the new technology available to buyers and sellers, do they still need a real estate agent?  The answer is an emphatic yes!  Although buyers can find houses online, they still need a seasoned agent to walk them through the buying process.  They can help them find a lender and get through the pre-approval process as well as the whole buying process including negotiating a good price.

On the seller side, realtors are important to get the house out there and noticed! They can guide sellers on market value and how to position their home to sell at or above market value in a short amount of time. It’s not uncommon to have a bidding war and a seasoned agent can help navigate through the whole confusing and stress-ridden process.

Sounds like a great job! Agent Rising Real Estate School is there to help you obtain your hours and pass your real estate exam.  Whether you are looking for online courses, traditional classroom hours or a concentrated two-day event, Agent Rising has you covered.

Real Estate Trends for 2019

What is 2019 going to bring for real estate?  Here are some predicted trends for 2019.

Mortgage rates climbed steadily last year.  The low 3.5% mortgage is a thing of the past right now.  They will continue to creep up this year and may plateau close to 6% this year.  What does this mean for buyers?  Buying a home may be harder.  Some homes may be simply out of their reach with the higher interest rates and rising house prices.  They may also be stuck at a lower price point.

Inventory is expected to rise so some degree. This may help some buyers looking for homes.  Higher end luxury homes going on the market are expected to have an increase.

Sellers are still expected to do pretty well with rising home prices.

Millenials are still expected to represent the largest group of buyers.  They are getting older so they may already be moving on to their second home.  They may be looking for more room or a better location but may still carry student debt which will make them careful with finances.

As real estate agents, this can help shape your year and your focus.  Are you going to jump into the luxury home market or help millenials find a new home?  It’s a great time to look at your marketing and see who your target client will be.
