Thinking Outside the Box! It seems that lately we have
had to rethink our
strategy on selling homes in this new market. Now, we've done
this before--each year as a matter-of-fact, but thinking outside the
box has become a MUST for Realtors® these days! Gone
are the days
of listing a home in MLS and not even having to make brochures or
flyers because DAY 1, the Sellers have at least one Offer!
From listing homes on every single online real estate site there is to
creating elaborate flyers and brochures with the help of a graphic
artist--a REAL one, not MY creative design (or lack thereof!) any
longer--we are constantly tweaking our marketing plan. Agents
talking their Sellers into offering gas cards, bonuses, higher agent
commissions, flat screen TV's, paying HOA dues and even advertising
their home on a site of its own.
Social networking is also another way that we promote ourselves.
Active Rain is one of the best networking sites out
there--and we certainly need to use it to our advantage!
working longer hours with a focus on advertising, marketing-- and do
so with blogging. Who BLOGGED five years ago? Who
that blogging would be so imperative to our business in 2008?
knew that our market would take such a dramatic turn in late 2007 which
gave us the time to learn this new and creative way to network socially
and sell our 'wares' in such a unique manner?
I certainly didn't! Tenacity and creativity are what
using to keep up with the everchanging market! With the
changing as dramatically as it has during the past year, business
models and plans HAVE to change--and SIGNIFICANTLY!
I work far
more hours in marketing than I did before and I am working long hours
to undo what the media has done to scare away the buyers that we do
have! 'Sticktoitiveness,' flexibility and
continuous fine-tuning are my best recommendations!
