It is so important to do everything possible to learn your neighborhoods-whether the areas are known because you live and drive through them-or whether they are new on your radar screen.
If you have an open-house take a dry-run so you know what is there and where to put up signs-
If you have never seen the area before spend time going around the area and write down some of the street names, the particluar features like kids, older folks, community insitutions, parks, subway stops, shopping centers.
Use the expired listing network to further enchance your knowledge of the vicinity-so you can answer questions to prospective buyers or sellers
Not every agent in your office knows every zip code in the State but every agent can and will help expand your nighborhood knowledge base by either living in a County youdon't often visit or by his/her extra-selling so to speak in one.!!
