That Post You Read This Morning May Pay Off This Evening!!
We read quite a few posts on Active Rain daily. The breadth and diversity of the available posts is amazing. No matter what category you want to hit, it's there!
Marketing ideas? Check!
A good laugh? Check!
Finance info? Check!
Home inspections? Check!
Again, it's ALL there and then some! Class is always in session!
Recently, we've had a couple of cases where something we read and absorbed came into play almost immediately!
If you follow Debbie Gartner, you know she's Active Rain's resident flooring guru! You want to know anything about wood floors, she's probably already done a post on it! Last Saturday, she posted on distressed and handscraped hardwood flooring. Very informative, but that type of flooring is NOT common around here. But what do we encounter the next afternoon during a prelist appointment? Distressed hardwood! So do you think we got any "bonus points" with the sellers for being knowledgeable about the topic? Sure beats going "That's purty wood you got there!!".
And the week before that Leslie Ebersole had posted a great comparison of short sale vs. foreclosure impacts. What comes up that night during a client meeting? Credit impacts of performing a short sale! Again, great to be able to speak from a position of knowledge!
So keep reading and absorbing because that tidbit from this morning's posts, it just might help you serve your clients better today!
Keep on reading & learning!
