We are not Paper Cups! - 09/29/11 05:29 PM
Finding a prospective buyer is a challenge in itself, but have you ever encountered the ones that are just undecided? One day they want a Single Family with land, then the next week they want a home in a community, next month they want to put everything on hold. You give them some space and let them hash out their indecision, BUT then? You lose them!! That's Right!, They threw you away like a paper cup! They have discovered another property with another agent and did't bother calling you! Some buyers treat us as Disposible paper cups! Perhaps if they should (1 comments)
Rainmaking on the Go? - 09/29/11 05:04 PM
Just wondering if anyone else has noticed how inconvenient it is to blog using I-Phone or I-Pad? I cannot get the blog article to upload any pictures. The only way I can get any text entered is to use the html version which is not really the way to blog unless you are trying to embed a web file. Any suggestions out there for a real app that can enable us to be better rainmakers?
I appreciate the feedback!
A Great Time to Buy...And Sell? - 09/27/11 10:41 AM
We usually identify the market as a "Buyers" Market or a "Sellers" Market, but is it possible to have Both? Yes, and in some areas we are witnessing just that! In Brevard County, Florida, housing was hit very hard, getting clipped over 60% from the peak of 2005. the low inventory levels have hit levels we have not witnessed in several years. This type of reduction has reduced the time a home spends on the market (If the home is priced according to demand). In some areas throughout Brevard the inventory is so low, buyers are finding fewer homes to chose from, so (0 comments)
Home Sales are surging in Viera- Particularly on the West side of I-95. Why? Lower Inventory and fewer Short Sale and REO (Bank Owned) properties coming on the market. In July & Aug 2011 the days a home stayed on the market was only 58 days, which is drastically less compared to the same two months in 2010 93 days. Unit Sales are up 39% for 2011 Year To Date in Viera West of I-95. Homes Sold through Aug 2011 137, compared to 97 same period 2010. That equals a 39% increase. This figure does not include all newly constructed homes (1 comments)
How does 1 Equal 10? - 09/25/11 11:37 AM
That's a bizarre question! No, its not some new formula, it has always been there, many just do not recognize it! I am talking about how does 1 client turn into 10! So, how does 1 equal 10? How can we turn 1 client into 10? Well, after you acquire a new client (which is a challenge in itself) The 1st place to start is providing a consistent Service that is "Above and Beyond" expectations! Most of us all know the importance of past client referrals, but many agents I talk with just don't keep ino touch long term after closing (2 comments)

Buyer to Agent: Thanks but No Thanks, I Bought Another Home! - 09/21/11 10:48 PM
Sound Familiar? Buyers are all over the map these days, even as the market has been beaten down, it seems to have made the buyers cover all basis, and in some cases, start out in one direction only to do a complete 180 in the other, including many different Realtors... It amazes me how many prospective buyers sift through the Internet, speak to Realtors, then through neighborhoods, call off the for sale signs, open houses, speaking with several Realtors to help them, setting them up on a home finder campaign. Where do they go? What really bothers us most, is this (0 comments)
