Here are the 10 agents who’ve been making waves in June:
Colorado broker Kevin Guerrero kicks off this month’s recap with a solid listicle that details the top reasons to relocate to Colorado Springs. His post is definitely persuasive and has a great chance of sealing the deal for folks who are already considering the area. It may even convince some that aren’t that the gorgeous city in the geographically-diverse state is the one for them.
Kevin starts by providing tips on the best outdoor sites and activities that newcomers can take advantage of and goes on to discuss the wonderfully friendly locals in the area, the kind and temperate weather, along with more niche interests such as the awesome lineup of breweries the city has to offer.
Kevin provides several options for both drinking and dining for movers to check out so they can find out more information about each. If you’re looking to put together an article like this, I’d suggest scouting Yelp to find out the top things local are loving in their city. There’s a category for just about everything!
Kevin ends the article by listing city facts such as the population that perspective movers and buyers would be interested in having available to them.
Southern California broker Matthew Silva gives us a great example of how to keep home listings engaging! Matthew includes a great aerial video of the property and also pulls in visuals from Google maps to give viewers a totally immersive experience.
From the video, potential buyers can see the incredible view the home yields and the gorgeous California landscape. In his writeup, Matthew takes readers through each room to cover the various features of the home. Even without video, though it undoubtedly enhances this post, Matthew’s in-depth look the home details gives readers an excellent idea about what the property has to offer and why they should check it out for themselves.
We first featured Debbie Boron in our first roundup and loved this recent post from her so much we had to include her again!
This is a really unique piece about the future of home improvement and there aren’t many blogs out there like it, which mean Debbie is going to start ranking for it immediately. We all read and write a ton of articles about renovations, decor and improvement tips for sellers, but Debbie is taking a new spin on the age-old topic and discussing how technology is transforming the future of home upgrades.
In fact, Debbie even says that these products are part of the home automation revolution that is transforming the way people live in their homes. From Bluetooth shower speakers, to smart bedroom lighting and heated toilet seats, these technologies seek to enhance the lives of homeowners and make day-to-day tasks just a little easier. Definitely give this piece a read!
Our man Darren James recently published a great read about an unfortunate scenario that agents may run into on the job: when a homebuyer backs out.
Whether you’ve encountered this situation or not, it’s still best to be prepared for anything in our line of work and Darren’s post does a great job of helping agents to deal with this particular issue.
He starts by laying out the top reasons why a buyer may decide to cancel a purchase agreement. Maybe they lost their job or have had issues selling their current home, and then there’s also the dreaded buyer’s remorse. Whatever the reason, and Darren takes us through several of them, the next part is the most important and that’s what agents and sellers can do to respond. Even in disappointing circumstances, it’s reassuring to know that you have options. Darren outlines each of the top reasons why a buyer may cancel and then gives detailed advice about what to do in each of these situations. Check it out!
Agent Stephen Perrino tackles a fairly complex subject to help home buyers get a better idea about the challenges they may face in the current market.
Stephen is putting forward a ton of information in this post that clients will value and deserve to have access to, even if the topic is a bit intimidating. At the end of the day, however, knowledge is power. Stephen discusses the seemingly stiff competition that may be rising among first-time buyers and other entry-level price consumers in the market, as well as how sellers looking to move up in the real estate marketing are actually in a good position and may be able to get top dollar for their entry-level homes with several options for them to seek a higher level property without the same competition.
These mortgage tips from Green Bay area expert Mike Higgins are must-read hacks for homebuyers. Mike explains that one of the worst things that can happen to a buyer after they find their dream home and start the buying process is finding out that their mortgage has been declined.
The home-buying process is a hugely emotional one as-is and Mike is out to help spare buyers the heartache that can come with having your mortgage denied. To do this, he interviewed top lenders in his area to compile the best possible advice on this subject. Getting pre-approved, working with local experts, and reading online reviews to choose a reliable lender make up Mike’s top three tips and he also reminds buyers that their agent is really their best friend and advocate throughout the life-changing process of buying a home.
Agent Marlo Parrish is empowering sellers with a great article on how they can market their home like a real estate pro. Marlo’s post starts off with a unique video to further pique the interest of viewers before she jumps into her topic.
She starts out by outlining her own credentials and giving readers some background information about her, including some impressive facts like that she’s been in the industry for over two decades and is a multi-award winning agent. In her post she lays out many of the steps we as agents take to sell a house. So much of this stuff is done behind the scenes so it’s nice for future clients to be able to get a taste of the many things we do to help them sell their property. This is a really well-done article and I hope you’ll read it in full!
Texas agent Ken Oenbrink brings us a nice timely piece that his audience can use right now. For North Texas residents, Ken has come up with the top reasons sellers should put up their home for sale this summer. He brings in some interesting facts and statistics from a variety of notable sources to support his article and ultimately puts forth a highly-convincing post for readers. An article like this is a great way to get your content shared around get your audience talking because it’s so relevant. And when most of us think of summer we’re probably reminded of adventures, being outdoors and new beginning, which further help to prove Ken’s point.
Steve Freeman recently put together an excellent resource-based article for home buyers in his area. If you’re looking for a topic to write about this week, definitely check out Steve’s article. All of your content should provide value to readers and a piece like this takes that value to the next level. Steve has done his homework and is now making it easy for Mississippi Gulf Coast buyers to find different financial programs that can assist them in purchasing their dream home. Steve is taking so much of the workload and stress off his future clients by offering up these free resources, so just imagine what he can do for folks as an agent!
