jeff fisher realtor: Things to Do in Scottsdale - 05/14/18 12:58 PM
When The New York Times’ once described Scottsdale as being “a desert version of Miami’s South Beach” it forgot to mention that the town is best known for being “The West’s Most Western Town” too.
Scottsdale is only 31 miles long and 11 miles wide, but it has certainly managed to fill that space with some amazing attractions in the form of parks, museums, shopping areas and concert halls, to name but a few. Its population of 230,500, as of 2014, has been keeping busy with all of them, so let’s find out what’s going on!

jeff fisher realtor: How to Choose Social Media for Your Content - 01/04/18 07:22 AM

This week I'll share my thoughts on what social media channels realtors should choose to post their content.
Since each social media channel is different, it is important to optimize content accordingly. For example, let’s say you just wrote a blog on “Open Houses” as well as created a video about open houses and now you want to share this content on social media.
Since Facebook is very picture heavy and optimized for video, you would want to upload the video natively to your post and then share the link to the blog in the “post” section. Remember to keep the post copy short and sweet!

jeff fisher realtor: Instagram for Realtors - 01/03/18 07:23 AM
 
Compared to other social media platforms, Instagram might not have the best referral traffic rates, its user base is skewed to a younger demographic, AND around 80% of Instagram users are outside of the US….
So, you’re probably thinking- ‘Is using Instagram really worth it?’
Short answer to that question- absolutely, YES!
With over 700 million active users and engagement rates up to 10x higher than other platforms like Facebook, Instagram may be a totally different ball game than other social channels, but it is the perfect tool for realtors to build awareness, create relationships and boost their brand.
First things first. If you’re on Instagram- you … (0 comments)

jeff fisher realtor: 4 Hardwood Flooring Tips for your Phoenix Home - 11/13/17 07:17 AM

Hardwood flooring is often equated to the older homes of the Midwest and the East Coast. Much of their structural design reflects a timeless, strong, resilient and traditional time period.
Here in the wild, wild Southwest our architecture is newer and more modern, usually portraying a ranch-style or adobe/stucco look, with geometric designs and clean lines.
Even though Arizona is one of the younger states in the union, we still reach for a little tradition every now and again. Our climate has always stretched builders and architects to think outside of the box as they try to create aesthetic appeal in a design … (3 comments)

jeff fisher realtor: Are You Using Social Media to Market? - 11/09/17 07:02 PM

 
Do you know the percentage of realtors that use social media to market their listings?
ANSWER: 9%
NO WAY ONLY 9%? I almost didn’t believe this one either. The audience for home buying wants and craves images of potential homes for them, as well as immediate answers to their questions.
So why haven’t agents delivered on a consistent basis? Social media is an ideal platform for Business to Consumer institutions like real estate agents because it opens the door for real-time conversation.
For example, say an agent posts an album of a newly-listed home. They can also include a quick description of the property and maybe … (0 comments)

jeff fisher realtor: Millennials in the Market - 10/06/17 10:23 AM

There’s no shortage of articles covering Millennials. Their habits in the worlds of entertainment, retail, community engagements and so many other areas of society have been studied and dissected with sharp focus over the past several years. While some may think it’s a topic that’s been covered enough, I see new trends developing.
As with every generation before, Millennials are growing older and their needs are evolving, including their real estate and home loan needs. Keeping a close eye on who Millennials are and their current needs helps me (as well as my business partners) prepare to provide them service beyond belief. [Have … (0 comments)

Is your home ready for sale from the inside out? Most home owners know that interior staging is essential to selling a home quickly and for the most profit, but too many home owners don’t think to expand their staging vision to the outdoors.
Your home needs to be appealing to buyers the moment they set foot on the curb – hence, the term “curb appeal”.
Sure, we’re told not to judge a book by its cover, but making that excellent first impression on a buyer is often key to making a sale. Maximizing your home’s curb appeal goes by many of the … (0 comments)
