real estate pipeline: What is your 2014 strategy? - 01/12/14 03:42 AM
The last couple postings, I have covered the topic of how the real estate field is slightly shifting.
From mortages being handled by smaller establishments as well as the large monopolies, to construction focuses backing away form multi-family structures and beginning to focus back on homes; this year may teach us a thing or two.
With buyers possibly being able to obtain better interest rates, and with a relatively low rate of new-home-construction, sellers may once again have the upper hand.
The value of homes may not skyrocket, but potential buyers may be willing to duke it out in a bidding war to obtain … (0 comments)

real estate pipeline: What to Expect in the New Year. - 12/29/13 02:00 AM
The new year brings new strategies, budgets, and outlooks on where you want to be by the end of the year. The housing marketing in 2013 was actually a very productive one.
Even with an iffy-economy and unemployment rate, new houses and structures were still popping up around the country. When looking at the statistics, the numbers still appear low compared to a fully-healthy economy, but comparing them to the numbers at the economic crash, we have been steadily recovering.
This year was a great year for sellers. With the economy slowly recovering, many people were out there purchasing homes for the first … (0 comments)

real estate pipeline: Cold Fronts & Real Estate. - 11/20/13 05:34 AM
Winter months, in many states, slows down life immensely. It seems much harder to peel yourself out of bed, and even your vehicle takes more time to reach operating temperatures.
What does the cold mean for buyers and sellers though?
Winter sure doesn't seem like the optimal selling time, but it sure seems like a great time to buy.
"The best month to make an offer on a house is January. Fewer buyers are willing to house-hunt during cold, nasty weather, so there’s less competition and few, if any, bidding wars. Sellers also tend to be more motivated than they will be in the … (3 comments)

real estate pipeline: Liar, Liar ... - 07/14/12 02:02 AM
BUYERS ARE LIARS. We've all heard it before, sometimes it rings true. But even the worst of buyers remain in the Little League when it comes to real, world-class liars.
On a quiet day with the Internet at my fingertips, I wondered: "Who are the biggest liars ever?" "What are the biggest lies ever told?"
Google can answer those questions. There are millions of sites focusing on liars and their lies. At the bottom of this post are links to a couple of my favorites.
Yes, we all lie to some extent sometimes. For example, Did you really thoroughly read Facebook's terms of … (0 comments)

real estate pipeline: Leveraging Emotional Triggers to Make a Sale - 04/20/12 01:57 AM
Some time ago we interviewed agents who have been successful working referrals from our service and compiled their suggestions and insights into a brochure we call the "Learn and Earn." We then send that brochure to new agents who begin working with Real Estate Pipeline in hopes that it helps them find a higher level of success with our service.
This is my third posting of information taken from that brochure. My thought in posting it here is that much of that information may be of service to all agents, regardless of how they first make contact with a potential client. Following is … (4 comments)

real estate pipeline: Well Fargo Accused of Discriminating With Foreclosures - 04/11/12 11:45 PM
AT REAL ESTATE PIPELINE, complaints like the following one leave us shaking our head. Why, we wonder, would a large corporation like Wells Fargo believe in this day and age it can get away with discriminating against a large group of Americans – or how it could still think it is good business practice.
According to a prepared statement by the National Fair Housing Alliance (NFHA), the alliance filed the complaint this week alleging Wells Fargo maintains and markets foreclosed properties in predominately white areas more aggressively than it does for properties in neighborhoods predominately populated by people of color.
The complaint … (3 comments)

real estate pipeline: See Those Complaints as Opportunities - 03/29/12 02:50 AM
AT REAL ESTATE PIPELINE, complaints are viewed as opportunities.
How so?
Well, we believe the vast majority of the time, clients who contact us with a complaint value our service and want to continue working with us - they just need to have a grievance addressed.
Worse is an angry client who doesn't contact us. Our thinking is that if a client is upset and doesn't bother getting in touch with us, they probably have simply decided not to work with our company any longer.
Those folks will be taking their business elsewhere - and they will share their dissatisfaction with their friends and associates along the way.
I believe the … (7 comments)

real estate pipeline: Watch for these Complaint Triggers - 03/27/12 02:04 AM
HERE AT Real Estate Pipeline, complaints are taken very seriously. On occasion, we handle complaints from agents about a particular lead we have forwarded them. Other times, referrals contact us with complaints about the agent we connected them with.
Complaints not properly addressed can lead to formal action being taken by state regulators or negative reviews being posted on consumer sites.  
It seems that much of the time, complaints are similar, oftentimes caused by the same set of circumstances.
How about you?
As a real estate agent, do you know what actions most commonly lead to complaints in the first place? Do you have procedures in place to … (2 comments)

real estate pipeline: Avoid at All Cost - 03/08/12 10:00 PM
Some time ago we interviewed agents who have been successful working referrals from our service and compiled their suggestions and insights into a brochure we call the "Learn and Earn." We then send that brochure to new agents who begin working with Real Estate Pipeline in hopes that it helps them find a higher level of success with our service.
Among the included information is that posted below. My thought in posting it here is the following information may be of service to all agents, regardless of how they first make contact with a potential client. Just remember, it is important what … (6 comments)

real estate pipeline: Remembering Clint Miller - A Reluctant Memorial - 02/28/12 11:47 PM
 
CLINT AARON MILLER        03.08.1971 - 12.11.11
 
THIS BLOG is about a co-worker and friend, and how some people continue to be a presence even after they are gone.
I'm writing about Clint Miller, a longtime employee and social networking wizard here at Real Estate Pipeline. Many of you followed Clint's blog on Active Rain, others knew him from his posts on Twitter and Facebook. Hundreds of you followed his fight with cancer, and offered support, on a Facebook prayer board.
Despite prayers, hopes and well wishes, numerous surgeries and chemotherapy and everyone doing everything they could, Clint died Dec. … (38 comments)
