I generally do blogging and catch up on other marketing (and/or paper work).  Today we had snow (looks like a lot) so that's what I did.

It certainly looks like you are getting a lot of snow. We had about six inches in our last storm. There's more coming, too. 

It's Colorado and we just deal with it. I've never really had any issues, and I've even shown properties where you have to snowmobile in to see them.

Do what I did and come to Hawaii? Of course, it helps to have a brokers license here too as well as in California.

But seriously for you, as long as your Internet works, stay put and work on your marketing. If you are snowed in, so is everyone else around you.

Lynnea Miller One of the things I love most about snow, is that most real estate agents tend to hibernate, which leaves the field pretty much open for the overly aggressive agent (like me).

When I show up at someone's door immediately after a major snow fall, people start to believe that I'm the guy they want representing them.

So, to answer your question, I'll be out and about calling on FSBO's and Expired's as soon as it's physically possible to do so.

We don't deal with snow in Florida but big blows are not uncommon.

When weather prohibits Plan A, I move to Plan B. That works until the power goes out, or the internet goes down, then it is on to Plan C. Plan C means time to check on the neighbors and those vulnerable.

Use technology for communication.  Depending on the size of the snow dump, wait a few hours or perhaps the next day to show properties so plows and homeowners can clear the side streets, sidewalks and walkways.  However, we get very few dumps each year.

Fist thing to do is check in with the client and see how the weather has impacting their schedule.  They may say they will be late or ask to reschedule.  It is always best if they are the ones to cancel.  Us as a Realtor only due so if roads are closed or we are too sick to make it.
