Texas real estate pros kickoff today’s list with a magical little piece that compares finding the “perfect” home to searching for a unicorn.

Brent and Deb present a great writeup on managing client expectations and the difference between a dream home and a perfect home.

You may be familiar with Tony.
Because we’ve featured him before.
Tony recently did something we love and highly recommend to all agents.
He consulted a local expert.
And then wrote about it.
Tony met up with a designer to come up with a list of 10 home improvement tips for sellers.
And I especially loved this quote from him:
Better deals start with ways to increase home resale value.
Check out these tips and more great quotes from Tony in the article linked below!
Housing market trends can be a drag.
But you need them.
And your audience needs to know about them.
It’s your job to turn them into something readable and useful.
Minnesota-based agent Chase Binnie is doing just that.
Chase picks out the most important facts and stats for the year and presents them clearly to readers.
And hey, if they want more information they can always contact him directly on his LeadSite and get a free home valuation!
Our friend Gabe K. came out with 9 Smart Home Technologies That Will Blow Your Mind.
And he was right!
He also makes a great argument for why sellers ought to really consider making their home a Smart House.
There are some really handy and also really cool pieces of tech in his writeup.
Which one is your favorite?
If Rakan’s headline doesn’t grab readers, this image he paired with it will.
Rakan breaks down three key points that can make a break an agent’s career in today’s industry and economy.
We don’t often see agents writing posts for other agents, but it’s definitely a nice change of pace.
Rakan works in Delaware and provides insight to his area, so it’s not like other agents who come across his content with a different niche or location would be in competition with him.
There’s so much we can gain from our peers by reading their thoughts and collaborating with them.
If you’re reading this Rakan, our challenge to you is to partner up with a real estate pro on an upcoming blog post!
We’ve talked about luxury properties as a niche before and now Jordan is using his knowledge of luxury housing to become an expert in the area.
He writes out what is essentially an introductory guide for those hoping to land one of these lush abodes.
And can now share this content with anyone in his audience who expresses interest in this search.
Buyer and Seller guides of any kind are great, but when you can make them even more specific in purpose you’re likely to attract even more qualified leads.
This topic may put a damper on some holiday cheer, but it’s a necessary topic to cover.
In fact, agent Ken Oenbrink has published a blog that all agents should go ahead and write for their area.
This kind of financial tragedy can be overcome and you can help.
Ken breaks down the different types of bankruptcy and the role credit and debit play in all of it.
He also covers the timeline from when someone declares bankruptcy to the time that they can realistically look into purchasing a house.
This is a truly standout post from LeadSite newcomer, Jeffrey.
Jeffrey’s post has all the elements of a successful blog.
It’s captivating, informative and also includes a video.
Jeffrey is cleverly starting his own series where he interviews staple businesses in his area.
If you’re an agent in a bigger city, take note.
This is the way to get noticed.
Finally, we have a super solid write up from Sean about the importance of getting lender approve prior to looking for houses.
He uses his knack for storytelling to pull out a real world experience and let his readers know just how important it is to get approved before finding that dream home.
And he does it in a really fresh and clever way.
Sean intros his article by telling readers about a couple who started the hunt before getting approved and describes how devastated they were when things didn’t go their way.
But he doesn’t tell the entire story up front.
Instead, he segways to discuss ways in which his audience can avoid these pitfalls.
Finally, he concludes his story which does actually have a happy ending.
Although it took longer than his clients would’ve liked, he eventually helped them to take the steps to get approved and together they found their dream home.
And that concludes our roundups for the year!!!
