Thurston County Monday Morning Buy Sell Sheet - 02/25/08 01:10 AM
This is NOT a trend report! If you save this report every week and graph the data, then you would have a trend report. Here are a few of my observations this week. There are significantly less new pendings this week. 61% of all new pendings were under $250K. That does not leave much activity over $250K. Long term interest rates have gone up and will continue to do so. Very short term rates have remained nearly unchanged. Real estate is on sale! And money is historically cheap right now! Today is the day to buy several homes. We should have bought a (2 comments)
Hey Smartie Pants...How's YOUR Income? - 02/22/08 02:50 AM
YOU ARE GETTING PAID (earning) WHAT YOU ARE WORTH! Everybody is. Yep. Cry about it. Or change it. That law is MORE reliable than gravity. Keep reading. Your earnings reflect ONE of two things 1) the value of the services that you bring to the market place or 2) what your boss decides to pay you for the service that you provide so that she or he can provide a good or service to the market place. So. The way I see it real estate agents have three options. Number one, keep whining about "the market" and in the next breath regurgitate that hollow gospel of optimistic (0 comments)

How much did those business cards cost you? Are you sure? - 02/18/08 12:16 AM
This is kind of a post log to a recent blog post...How to win big in real estate...right now! I feel like I didn't answer a question that I posed. And I wouldn't want to leave you wondering. How much did those pretty business cards cost you? $59? $99? Maybe $129? That may be what you paid the printer for them but I am certain that they COST you much more than that! But how? And how much? Let's say that you went through 500 business cards this past year.And half of those actually ended up in the hands of people that you (4 comments)

BURN YOUR BUSINESS CARDS! "But Kirk, my cards are so pretty, and people like them, and I have to "get my name out there", and how nobody is going to be able to call me to sell their house if they don't have my card! Right?" Kirk's Lead Generation Theorem #1 When given the choice, people choose to do business with people that they KNOW, LIKE, TRUST and FEEL CONFIDENT can do the job. The most magical, mystical and powerful business card from the fairy tales cannot and will not bring a person to know you, like you, trust you and build confidence in (2 comments)
Utilizing POWER TECHNOLOGY to market your listings...cheap - 02/06/08 02:18 PM
What are you telling your potential sellers? Do you sound convincing? Do YOU believe what you are saying? Are you telling them what they want to hear? Or are you telling them the TRUTH? When you tell them about a "marketing plan" does it look like every other agent in your office? Like every other "marketing plan" they will see? Do you sound like this? "I will expose your home on my office website, realtor.com, and blah blah blah..." OR Are you conveying to sellers that you are a Marketing Expert that goes way beyond the scope of the average realtor? Below (3 comments)
Thurston County Market Update February - 02/05/08 11:52 PM
If you don't know your numbers, you should NOT be selling real estate! What happens when inventory climbs and the number of closings remains static? When reading this it is important to bear in mind that closings in the month of January is a function of the contracts written in December and November, for the most part. These are single family residential statistics, not inlcuding condominiums, sorted by city.Call or shoot me an email if you would like an editable copy for your use. What do these numbers tell you? I would be prospecting for sellers in the areas where the absorption rate in (0 comments)
