Friday evening I wrote
a post, “Why
and how I think the $8,000 tax credit could be better spent”.
came about because of a footer that I was putting on a post that I put
tonight called, “Beaverton
First Time Home Buyers can realize a $8,000 tax credit if they buy
December 1, 2009”
Now, when I wrote that, I certainly didn’t expect to get it featured. It was just my opinion that I wanted to put as a footer… that turned into a post of all its own by the time I was down with it.
But, here is what happened on Saturday that I didn’t expect from that article. I got many comments from agents saying how they loved the “1st time home buyer credit” as it was getting people off the fence and buying. I wasn’t getting this from my buyers, I wasn’t sure why, but I wasn’t.
Then I posted that article last night and “BAM!” I got thirteen leads in one day for first time home buyers because of that post. Thirteen off an idea that was saying it was a bad idea and that I thought it should change.
Now, I specialize in first time home buyers, and first time buyer properties, but I guess I wasn’t telling them enough about the $8,000 tax credit, because it was like I opened the flood gates once I mentioned that I thought it should go away.
So, sometimes, even when you write something for one reason, it can benefit you in others. So if you have an idea for a post, even if you don’t think it is intended for the public, post it and you may see some amazing results from it as well.
