I have three geriatric dogs. Although the stack of vet receipts proves their advanced age, I find myself constantly checking my pooches while they’re napping to see if they’re still breathing. I do the same thing with my former real estate clients, if you can believe it. If one of my dogs sleeps through my grabbing the keys before leaving the house, while the other two run for the door (well, it’s more like “toddle” to the door) I’m Johnny-on-the-spot, looking at the sides of its body for signs of exhaling and inhaling. Do you check for signs of life…

If we told you that LinkedIn boasts a 2.74 percent visitor-to-lead conversion rate, would it make you consider using LinkedIn for real estate? Yeah, it sounds pretty tiny, right? But, when compared to Facebook’s .77 percent and Twitter’s .69 percent, LinkedIn’s is positively huge. In fact, according to Hubspot’s number crunching, LinkedIn’s conversion rate is 277 times higher than Facebook’s. One of the reasons for this may be the fact that LinkedIn is pretty much business-oriented. No photos of kitties or what someone had for lunch or updates on family matters. Because there are fewer social posts, “a business’ marketing…
How often do you think about your real estate website homepage? I spent the weekend reading real estate blog posts. Yeah, sounds boring, but it’s an occupational hazard. Then, I happened upon one that was so brilliant, I about fell out of my chair. Titled “Why Snapchat is Crap for Real Estate Agents,” it was written by our very own Tyler Zey back in 2016. But, man, is it pertinent today. No, it’s not all about Snapchat. It’s about agents chasing each new shiny object while letting the tried and true fall by the wayside. I’ll bet that happens in…
While fall isn’t as slow a real estate season as winter, it does begin a significant slide around the end of October. This is when you may find yourself digging deep into your CRM for fall real estate lead generation that will keep you going over the winter. While contacting folks in your database is a perfectly respectable lead generation technique, you may need to go a bit bigger, or, at least, think more creatively in preparation for the coming slow-down. We’ve rounded up some tried-and-true fall real estate lead generation techniques and some you may have never considered….
Every month I receive real estate market reports from a local real estate team. They aren’t anything fancy; they are, in fact, rather homely. There are no graphs (which I consider a blessing), there’s not a bit of color and they’re printed on cheap paper. But, when they show up in my mailbox, it’s the first piece of mail I open. Every month. And, by the way, they’re the only real estate market reports I receive. No other agents in my area send these out and I live in a major metropolitan area. I like to keep tabs on…
What does it take to create the perfect open house? Until they pass their real estate licensing exam and hang it with a broker, new agents are largely insulated from real estate office “water cooler” talk. You know – “buyers are liars,” and “open houses are a waste of time.” Sure, you may agree with both, but new agents are a different breed and, for them, buyers and open houses may just be their ticket to that first commission check. If you’re a new agent, don’t listen to the Negative Nellies because right now, you don’t have the luxury to…

Ever notice Generation X real estate clients aren’t getting much attention? I recently read yet another real estate blog post urging agents to chase after Millennials (are there many who AREN’T currently doing that?). Although the post was written in the past month, the writer decided to repeat the oft-quoted NAR stat that Millennials make up 36 percent of the buyer pool, thus making them the largest homebuying demographic. Guess what? NAR breaks down generations into age groups that no real demographer uses. For instance, they claim that Millennials are age 37 and younger. It is commonly agreed that Millennials…
